Humanity as we know it has gone! – Omescape saving Huxley

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel forward in time when machines have taken over the world and humanity as we knew it was gone?  Well with Omescape latest virtual reality (VR) game Huxley you can do just that.

With VR becoming more and more popular these days me and some other enthusiastic escape room players from Love Pop Ups London we were super keen in stepping into the year 3007 AD on a complimentary basis to give our feedback.

Are you sceptical about VR escape rooms because you have done static VR games before and never thought much about the quality of realism? Well don’t be as even though I and some others have done static VR games before this walk around one really will surprise you with it’s mind blowing graphics.

With this VR experience you will be experiencing the latest new technology used by Omescape. No longer will you sit in a chair and navigate through virtual space with some hand motions or a controller that feels like you are just playing on your computer console. This one you can manoeuvre and walk around and you’ll even feel as wind is blowing against you really making you feel you are in the situation. Continue reading
