Description: Deserving Life is a room-scale virtual reality escape game for the HTC Vive and was developed by students in the Media Technology and Design program at the Hagenberg Campus of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria. You awake to find yourself chained down in an unfamiliar house. Can you solve all the riddles and find your way to freedom?
Interact with your environment and combine the available resources to overcome each obstacle and find a way out of your misery. Up to eight individual rooms await you, each packed with a series of challenges that were specially designed for the HTC Vive’s room-scale features. You’re alive. But can you escape?
Review: If you have the 2m x 2m of play-space required to play Deserving Life you are in for a good escape room game that will test your nerves and your puzzle-solving skills. While this indie game is not the most amazing looking it is a freebie and for once I think this is well worth a download. While it doesn’t last much longer than 30 mins tops you will be enjoying yourself for that time and for a free game that is rare.
