Description

The main concept of the game was taken from a laboratory facilities of University chemistry faculty. With additional features, these facilities have been turned into a gamified Virtual Reality “Escape room” type experience which is based on real chemical experiments. The main goal of the game is to escape the laboratory in a certain amount of time. Inside the virtual world, the player has to look for clues and perform chemical experiments to progress further ahead. At the current state of the game, there are three different kind of experiments that could be experienced. After completing a required experiment or another task, the player is awarded a part of a three-digit code. After collecting all the required parts of the code, the player is able to type in the code and finish the level. To make the experience even more immersive and simulative, the world is developed as a fully interactive one, meaning that there are possibilities to interact with almost every object in the level.

History

Development on Escape the Lab was started in early 2019’s by a small team of University students. It was initially intended to be a small project for a Student organization which was mostly based on chemistry, but thanks to the attention and feedback it got, the developers got motivated to develop the game even further and create something better, or at least an Educational VR title, that could be accessible to almost anyone.
