VR Escape Room ‘Survival’ Simulates Being Stranded On A Deserted Island
Explore the beach, find your friends, and survive the elements in this location-based VR adventure.
VR escape room developer ARVI VR Inc. this week announced a brand new addition to its line-up of family-friendly immersive experiences, Survival, a tropical themed VR adventure in which players explore a uninhabited island located somewhere across the Pacific Ocean. It is there players will be tasked with surviving the elements while completing a series of objectives in an effort to escape their tropical purgatory.
“The game is a great way to get away from it all and spend an awesome time with friends,” said Michael Dementii, CEO of ARVI VR. “Not only will players be able to enjoy the beauty of a tropical island, but they also get an opportunity to test their skills in the role of a plane crash survivor. A new unforgettable adventure for the whole family is guaranteed.”
The experience begins with you and your friends flying aboard a private jet as you make your way to the vacation to end all vacations. Along the way, however, your plane is struck by lighting and you soon find yourself frantically paddling towards the warm shores of a mysterious tropical island.
Though the game is being advertised as a multiplayer experience similar to past ARVI VR Inc. releases (Jungle Quest, Mission Sigma, Sanctum), it sounds as though players will begin the journey on their own and will need to traverse the island in order to locate their teammates. The official release indicates a focus on exploration and puzzles, similar to real-world escape rooms; you’ll need to locate supplies and seek shelter from the weather if you hope to survive long enough for the search team to locate you.
ARVI VR Inc. states that Survival will be available at over 150 location-based VR venues and arcades worldwide, though it’s unclear how the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak will impact its deployment.
