Fire Escape Review
Posted: 16 months ago, last updated 7 months ago.
You can play this in VR on PC (Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift). Or just play it like a normal PC game with no headset required. It's also available on Android.
While the game can't (and in many ways doesn't try to) match the classic film for suspense and drama, it offers involvement and agency that draws you into the lives of the people you watch. The seven stories and the crime unfold in real-time, which add pressure to proceedings.
Moment to moment you choose who to watch, use the controller to text and interact with characters. You can replay missed stories.
