Description: You find yourself trapped in a stone basement, locked in by an unknown mastermind. Your task is simple: to escape by completing the series of challenges and puzzles set before you. You have one hour before the bomb he’s left with you detonates. Can you discover the inner workings of the game and complete the challenges in time, or is your gruesome fate inescapable?

Inescapable VR: Underground is the first entry in a series of made-for-VR escape room games to be released on Steam. In it, you’ll find puzzles ranging from relatively simple to quite complex, with clues both transparent and cleverly obfuscated. We’ve endeavoured to keep objects true to their real-world counterparts and to give the player the tools they need to interact with the virtual world as comfortably and intuitively as possible.

Review: I’m not normally a fan of escape rooms games and if I am honest ‘Inescapable VR: Underground’ didn’t change my mind. It’s just the same old thing we have seen a hundred times before. To some who love the genre that is no bad thing, but it was to me. While some of the puzzles were quite clever and the graphics were OK there was just nothing that stood out for me in this game. I do feel £3.99 is just a little overpriced and getting it for half price or less will help you to get more value for money. Don’t get me wrong here, ‘Inescapable VR: Underground’ isn’t a terrible game, it’s just nothing new nor exciting.
