Description: Fall back into childhood with this addictive VR adaptation of the beloved hide and seek. Try to find the other players in surprising environments to get the best score. Lie down under beds or crouch behind crates and try to secure the best hiding spot!
Each player will in turn become the cat. The mice will have a short time to find the best hiding place in various environments. When released, the cat will gain points by finding as many players as possible. The anxious mice will tremble as they can keep track of the cat’s position by listening to the changes of the spatialized music. A vocal chat adds tons of fun and a great social dimension to the game.
Review: Maybe, just maybe there was a time in the life of ‘Hide N Seek VR’ in which it was a good game with a good amount of players online to play with. It might have been fun and keep you amused long enough to justify the £3.99 asking price. Sadly those days are long gone and that means this game is as dead as they come. To be honest it needed a lot of work anyway so it is probably a good thing that it is no longer worth playing full-stop. But credit where it is due, it was a good idea for a game, but sadly the online-only gameplay kills it off.
