A brand new escape room VR title, this time with horror and action element, has just by announced.
It seems like an interesting concept to me personally, because blending in horror and escape-the-room genre sounds like an interesting mix. It can easily makes a person to feel claustrophobic and uneasy at the same time, which can easily distract them from solving the puzzles under a calm mind.
Nevrosa: Escape is a title that is under development by GexagonVR. There’s a underlying backstory under the gameplay: in this title, you play as Young Mr. Conway, who has just received an old family manor as an inheritance from your grandfather, William Conway. William has gone missing since few years ago, and during his life, he was famous for his scientific works and love for his art deco style. Unfortunately, the Conway’s family (which will also include you, the young Mr Conway) has a mind disease, which gets stronger with age, and it is suggested that this is what causes the appearance of his final years. You will explore William Conway’s old manor, which is also where his laboratory is situated, try to solve his mystery and face your deepest fear – the Conway’s disease.
The developer is building this title from the ground up for VR. There are full room scale locomotion. According to GexagonVR, there is no teleportation nor touchpad movement. To play this game, you will need a 1.5m x 2m room area to play. You have a virtual body too, so its not like you will have just a floating hands. If you take an object, you will take it with your hand just like it is supposed to be in real life. They are also teasing some unrevealed special modes in the game.
GexagonVR also said that there are multiple endings too after you have cleared the game, which not only includes puzzle, but also actions too. The trailer depicts art deco-inspired environment filled with creepy puzzle machine contraptions, a dangerous mist world, and some unsettling creatures too.
Nevrosa: Escape doesn’t has a release date yet, but we should see this title in Fall 2017 for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, going by the details on Steam Page. For now, you can just head there to add the game to your wishlist or follow the game.
