Description: Time travel to the past as Detective Cobie Cromwell. Find clues and solve puzzles in this story-rich, immersive, virtual reality escape room game. Game to be released in successive chapters, with four total planned.
Review: ‘The Beast of Stormy Forest’ is your average escape room game that you would have played probably countless times before. You need to look for clues and solve puzzles before the 15 minutes timer runs out. While there is only one room the graphics look good and the spooky atmosphere keeps you feeling on edge even if it is a short amount of time. For me, the controls worked OK and the puzzles were interesting if a little easy. Taking into account that this is free any escape room game fan should love it. It’s just it might take you longer to download it that it will to solve the puzzles and get out of the room. There is the promise of chapter two, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.
