In Escape Black Orion you are an engineer working in a mysterious facility code named Black Orion. Using your wits and whatever tools you can find you must disengage the door locks to escape before your air runs out. Something is very wrong and you need to find out what happened but first you need to get out. Luckily, you’re not alone! Along the way you meet Pluckey. He’s one of the facilities maintenance robots and wants you to survive. Pluckey adds his wit and skills to help you navigate this challenging puzzle game.
Pulse Studio has taken its roots designing 3d environments and our love of video games to create our first virtual reality escape room. We have designed a game that uses unique custom tools and encourages creative thinking. Episode 1 will introduce you to the world of Black Orion and its characters. It features the first room you need to escape from in order to survive. Each Episode will add more puzzles and reveal more insight about this mysterious place. Episode 1 takes about 30-50 minutes to complete depending on how quickly you can solve the puzzles. Our game has been submitted to Steam and should be available on September 14th, 2018. Check out the trailer here and if you have a Steam account we hope you add it to your wishlist: https://store.steampowered.com/app/897100/Escape_Black_Orion_VR/ You can learn more about Escape Black Orion at https://www.escapeblackorion.com/
