Description: You’ve spent the day lounging about your apartment, contemplating what else to watch on TV. As you gaze around the room, you remember that there was an official looking letter that came in the mail – perhaps you should open it and see what it is…

The Unwelcomed is an escape the room (EtR) type game created for VR and was inspired by such classics as Crimson Room. The Unwelcomed starts by inviting you to come to your late uncle’s mansion to claim it as your own. Once you arrive, however, it’s going to be hard to leave…

Review: The Unwelcomed is your classic escape room style of game with a creepy atmosphere, but no jumpscares that I found which is a good thing. Graphically the game is OK, but nothing special and it is a little too dark in some of the rooms. The puzzles themselves are not overly complicated but should be a good enough challenge for most players to struggle with. Some people will find the £7.19 asking price a little too much, but there is a good 3-4 hours of content here which probably does justify that asking price, but personally I suggest you wait for a sale anyway to make sure you get good value for money. Sure, there is nothing new or exciting here, but its still an escape room game well worth playing.
