Abstract : Globally, educators are striving to find innovative ways of engaging their learners and ensuring that they accomplish the desired learning outcomes. Among the various game-based learning approaches that have come up in recent years, escape games are being widely used in a variety of learning contexts. As an entertainment activity, these games seem to be popular among players of all ages and backgrounds. This chapter introduces escape games and provides a literature review on their possible benefits and limitations. The game mechanics and learning mechanics that enable these games to be a potentially playful activity for teaching and learning will be discussed. This chapter provides educators and researchers with the required information backed by various studies to consider the integration of educational escape games with their current learning methods.
