Room escape games are becoming increasingly popular, not just in virtual reality (VR), but also in the real world. Now developer Thomas Neptune has teamed up with a real world room escape business to create a virtual room escape videogame.
A-Escape VR was co-designed with a real-world escape room business A-Escape, the Asheville Escape Room in order to make the experience as immersive as possible. As is typical of the genre, the player is placed in a room that is filled with complex puzzles and mysteries that they must solve in order to escape.
The second trailer uses a fairly effective background sound of a ticking clock to quietly express urgency as keys are discovered and complex combination locks are examined. A-Escape VR supports the HTC Vive, though the developers say that an Oculus Rift with Touch version is in development.
A-Escape VR usually costs £6.99 (GBP) on Steam, but it is currently available with a 25% discount, bringing the price down to £5.24. This offer is available until 7th April 2017.
