I’ve written about the genre of “Escape The Room” online video games before. In these point-and-click activities, players are stuck somewhere; have to find objects (often in a certain) order; and then use them to…escape the room. The best ones show text when players click on the different objects — either describing what they are or giving other instructions.
I have many of these games, and their “walkthroughs” (instructions on how to win the game) on my website under Word and Video Games. Used together, these are excellent language-development opportunities for English Language Learners. You can see images of my students working in groups on these games here.
One new game I’ve posted on my site is T2B Escape. Here is the Walkthrough.
