Description: You find yourself at the threshold of an abandoned lab containing technology of unknown origins. Welcome to The Energy Lab. You’ve found your way in, now find a way out. A new VR short by TimeMachine, creators of Bathroom Break!
Review: I really do think ‘The Energy Lab’ could have been something good. It looks good and really sets the scene of the game making it quite immersive. But sadly, by the time you are immersed and interested in the game ahead the game has already finished.I’m not talking after 30 mins or so, if you make this game last 5 minutes you are doing something wrong! It almost takes longer to download and install this game than it does to play it! Is it worth playing? Yes, but to many that super short length might well be the reason they don’t download it which if you ask me is a shame.
