The Christmas period was quite good for giveaways on VRFocus, we had a couple of competitions you could enter for both PC and PlayStation 4. But such things are in the past and those who won have been given their codes. It’s time to move on to bigger and better things. New year, new competitions. And if we’re going to begin let’s start with a title we reviewed very recently.
The idea of the escape room is simple: You’re locked in a single room, there is an obvious way to get out but there seems to be very little you can do to accomplish it. Your only way out is to follow the breadcrumbs. Performing various tasks in order to solve various little mysteries that will take you one step closer to freedom. The door takes a key? Okay, well, where’s the key? Is it in one of these cupboards? No, but there’s some marks scratched into the cupboard – and there’s a keyboard with a bloody fingerprint on W. One answer leads to the next puzzle, and so on and so forth, etc, etc.
More and more virtual reality (VR) videogames are looking to the idea and the mechanics of the escape room – it’s a topic a couple of our guest writers have even mentioned in articles coming soon to VRFocus . In Nevrosa: Escape, GexagonVR have woven a number of challenging puzzles into their title. A title that is heavy on details and atmosphere as we mentioned in our recent review:
“Make no mistake however that just because Nevrosa: Escape is a puzzler at heart that it can’t get the blood flow pumping with some atmospheric horror to add to the experience.” Explained regular reviewer Peter Graham, on his way to awarding it four stars. “Finding yourself in an old manor somewhere in Northern Europe, you’re there because of your characters grandfather who disappear several years previously. Hidden away in a dark mysterious laboratory you begin to unearth what the old man was researching and needless to say it isn’t pretty.”
We’ve got five codes for Nevrosa: Escape up for grabs, courtesy of the generous folks at GexagonVR. And, as usual, all you have to do to be entered into the draw is interact with our social media accounts. You get an entry for every one of the following actions below: Be a follower of us on Twitter, subscribe to us on YouTube, or visit our Facebook and Google+ pages. A lot of you probably do that most every day anyway, so why not get an entry into a competition for it.
The competition is open for a week starting today, 5th January 2018, and will end shortly at midnight UK, the beginning of January 13th. Winners will be drawn and contacted after that period. The best of luck to all!
