Players in VR escape rooms solve puzzles just as you would in a traditional escape room.
You will find yourself in a fantastical environment — a space station, or under the sea — and start exploring. There may be objects to pick up and manipulate. There may be codes to decipher. Doors to unlock. When you solve one set of puzzles, you will be seamlessly transported into the next area — allowing the experience to stay fresh throughout your experience.
There’s a wanted bandit on the loose and he’s hijacked a train. If you don’t bring him to justice, no one will!
Board the train, shoot down his drones, and make your way through the carriages to the final showdown. Work together to operate a gatling gun, turn metal ingots into useful items with a smelter, and solve puzzles the cowboy way: Shooting them!
Space Station Tiberia
WARNING: This game contains tight spaces, crawling, fog, loud sounds, and mild use of strobe lights if you escape.
What is a Virtual Reality Escape Room?
If you’ve ever played in a real brick and mortar escape room game then you probably remember the experience very well. How the excitement and stress mount as the clock ticks down the time and you struggle with those last few clues. Then there is another type of gaming which is completely different, in that it makes use of technology and nothing else. Maybe you’ve been to a games arcade and tried on the VR headset. Being three-dimensional, it adds an immersive and almost life-like feeling to the gameplay.
What to Expect
The actual length of the escape room game will depend very much on the room’s way of playing. Likewise, the difficulty level, as well as the number of people playing the game, will vary considerably. But as a general rule, the VR game will take as long as a real game and that is usually around 45 min. But the actual time you spend in the escape room will very much depend upon how well you and your friends managed to solve the puzzles and clues. Likewise, the number of people who can play in a single escape room at the same time will depend on what scenarios you are playing out, as well as the individual escape room business you’re playing at.
Dress For Walking
Between 2 and 5 people to play together at the same time. Though you are plugged into a 3D virtual machine, you will still do a fair bit of walking. To that end we suggest that you avoid wearing any bulky clothes and choose to dress primarily for comfort. So don’t overdress as you’ll be too hot later on.
Just as with regular escape room games, there will always be a game master there who you can speak with if you get stuck on a single task for too long. They will not tell you the answer, but give you subtle clues to help unblock your mind.
Be Aware Of Motion Sickness
One factor that is rarely mentioned when playing virtual reality escape room games, is the fact that a considerable number of players may experience some form of motion sickness. Our brains are hard-wired to see the horizon or the ground in front of us. And the virtual world will be lacking in the spatial trigger’s necessary to allow us to maintain a level head. Though not all VR games are guilty of causing motion sickness, if you are a person who becomes queasy easily, then maybe this type of gameplay is not ideally suited to you.
But having said that, we still think that, should you ever find the opportunity to play in a VR escape room game, then you should seize the chance with both hands. If you played in a real brick and mortar escape room game before, then by playing a VR version, you will be able to decide which is better.
