We have played the first Huxley quite some time ago in Berlin and were blown away by the way this VR Escape room let you still move around in the real world while feeling highly immersive during the game (check our review here). Since we have played it, Huxley became a huge hit around the world and you can find the VR game in multiple countries and cities around the world – if you are not in Salzburg or Berlin and you would still be interested, check out the official Huxley VR website were they list all the locations: https://huxleyvr.com/#locations
Naturally, we were happy to find out that a new Escape VR company has opened in Austria, which meant we wouldn’t need to fly to Berlin to experience the next chapter of Huxley which is titled “Huxley 2 – The Adventure Begins“.
Virtual Escape in Salzburg is run by VR enthusiasts and we can happily confirm that we did not face any problems with the local VR equipment. Although we have not seen the new location as we still visited their “old” rooms, we are sure that you will still have enough room to move for the game and our game master was always watching us to make sure everything went smooth.
We don’t want to spoil the game’s story too much but it is again a very emotional adventure with relatable stakes. We did mess up a bit in the middle of the game and I got very concerned that I wouldn’t be able to “finish the storyline”, but in the end, we succeeded and the finale was again very well done.
Since this is the second part of the series, the big WOW factor is not as big as the first time, although the game itself still is amazing. We have yet to find a better VR experience than both of the Huxley games. All in all, we had an amazing time in the game and can’t wait to return to check out some other games.
If you are in the area, like VR games and want to support a young business try one of their games – you might be surprised by it.
