Description: EscapeVR: The Basement is an ‘Escape The Room’ genre game which was inspired by real-life escape games and designed from the ground up as a room-scale virtual reality experience for the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift+Touch (360° setup), and Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headsets. You find yourself locked in the cell of an unknown basement with nothing else than a bed, a toilet, and some dishes. Can you escape? Explore the environment, solve puzzles, discover useful items, investigate clues, and find your way through a total of seven rooms in three areas to -hopefully- escape the basement of this VR escape room game!

Review: There is lots of escape room style games available for our VR headsets these days so standing out from the crowd is important to any new game in the same genre. EscapeVR: The Basement doesn’t stand out from the crowd, but it is still a pretty good puzzle room style of game. Sur,e it doesn’t offer anything new to the genre, but it does look good and feels much more polished than many others. I liked that the puzzles were not too hard, but also not too easy. While you will finish the whole thing in less than 20 mins if you get it is a sale rather than paying full price you might well enjoy it more than I did. This isn’t the worse puzzle room game, but it is far from the best.
