���Crimson Room��� is one of the original room-escape games, first released in 2004. The game set up many of the fundamental room-escape mechanics, including simple puzzle solving and in-depth exploration of the game environment. Players find themselves in a red room with no knowledge of how they arrived there. Finding and manipulating various items in the room, they must solve a series of puzzles to exit through the room���s locked door. ���Crimson Room��� spawned a number of sequels, including ���Viridian Room,��� ���Blue Chamber��� and ���White Chamber.���
���Submachine��� takes the basic gameplay of the ���Crimson Room��� series and polishes it, adding improved graphics and a range of environments. The game comes in a number of installments, and players must escape different areas in each iteration, including an abandoned lighthouse, an underground labyrinth and a padded cell.
While most room-escape games traffic in atmospheric suspense and creepily desolate environments, the genre also had more family-friendly titles, such as ���Ant Hill Trap.��� The game puts players in control of an ant who must solve puzzles to escape a flooded anthill and reunite with his colony.Learn more about Online Games
