Escapology, an ancient art, is gaining popularity. A slew internet games were created that were simple to code and fun to play.
These games put you in a position where you are trapped in a specific location. It could be a room or a house. You would need to locate all the clues and tools you could to escape the location as quickly as possible.
Escapology has a long history. Escapology Day celebrates that past, present and future.
Escapologists are the name given to practitioners of Escapology. You’ll find names like Harry Houdini and John Nevil Maskelyne among them.
Some of these artists pulled off incredible feats that involved them fleeing from seemingly impossible situations. Others put them in danger, putting their lives at risk. Norman Murray Walters was a respected escapeologist and contemporary of Harry Houdini.
If you ask the escapologists, Escapology has even its own Patron Saint. After having escaped, St. Nicholas Own is said to have helped two Jesuit prisoners from the Tower of London jailbreak. Because it seemed impossible to escape from this prison, Catholic escapologists took him along with St. John Don Bosco as their own.
Modern escapology is not as dangerous as what these pioneers tried, but it has been made easier by ‘Escape Room’ businesses. These puzzle-solving businesses create time limits and allow people to solve the puzzles.
