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

Phobos-17 has landed – Mostly Harmless Games

Mostly Harmless Games returns with a new game Phobos-17 which is the sequel to their The Lifeboat escape room.

Phobos-17 is an abandoned Russian vessel which can be found hidden within the Artworks in Elephant & Castle.

The rumour has it that there is some high grade uranium on board Phobos-17 but the shipping container is full of radiation so brave hunters will only have 60 minutes to retrieve it or risk getting radiation sickness.

Mostly Harmless

Mostly Harmless was created by a bunch of actors, designers and games nerds who met at Crystal Maze experience.

Their first project was The Lifeboat which set sail earlier on this year at the Vaults Festival with it being a sell out towards the end of it’s run and bagging an award for Innovation along the way.

Phobos-17 is a continuation of that journey all packed with thrills in a twelve metre long shipping container! Continue reading

Escape room recommendations

Escape rooms have become more and more popular and elaborate with some bordering nearly on the immersive side. If you love solving puzzles and cracking clues then Escape rooms are certainly a unique fun thing to do with friends & family or even work colleagues for a social team building challenge. For those that have done escape rooms you will all know that they are very unique and challenging in their own rights.  If you have never done one I highly recommend you do so.

Still asking why play an escape room?

Well if you was like me when I was growing up I used to watch a 90’s television game show called The Crystal Maze and it involved lots of puzzles and challenges all to be done within a set time frame. I love puzzles and challenges so I always wanted to appear on it and be one of those contestants.  Plus I had a crush on Richard O’Brien. Alas though unfortunately I never did get the opportunity to play or appear on The Crystal Maze. However no fear as Crystal Maze is very much like an escape room but instead of playing in a room by yourself with your team mates shouting at you through a window with an escape room you can all play together at the same time.

Dentist warning – No Escape London

At No Escape London no one will hear you scream from their Dentist. First challenge is finding the escape room. It is located up a set of stairs within Londis newsagents. So after passing some sweets you will see the stairs on your left. I must resist temptation and remember what the dentist might say “Three times a day and no candy!”.  The stairs are very narrow so be warned and there is not any space to step aside to let others pass. Eventually or should I say unfortunately I made my appointment to the Dentist. I HATE dentists. Upon entering the reception area it was then time for me to wait further for myblogger/reviewer friends and appointment. Continue reading
