In the left of this photo you can see the VR stations used for the intro of the game.
The Virus is currently the feature (and only) game of the company “Get the F Out”. You and your team of research scientists must enter an underground research lab in order to discover a cure for a deadly global pandemic. In order to do so, you must synthesize together the right components that you will discover throughout the game. However, you only have 60 minutes because of a certain something that happened…
The game has two very interesting elements. The first is the VR intro that you get to experience at the beginning, which is a neat bonus that sets up the story before your time begins. The second is a neat mechanic that has to do with the physical space of the lab itself (we’ll refrain from saying any more to avoid potential spoilers).
Beyond those two interesting elements, there are neat lab-themed puzzles, some of which let you play around with some cool lab equipment. Some of the theatrics that help advance the storyline are quite thrilling and fun as well.
