Inno­v­a­tive Secret Agent Puzzler Nominated for Outstanding Achieve­ment in Game Design, Immersive Reality Game of the Year and Immersive Reality Technical Achieve­ment

PITTSBURGH, PA (January 25, 2017) — Crit­i­cally-acclaimed game developer Schell Games today announced its virtual reality (VR) secret agent escape-the-room puzzle game I Expect You To Die has been named a finalist in three award cate­gories for the 20th D.I.C.E. Awards by the Academy of Inter­ac­tive Arts & Sciences (AIAS). The award cate­gories include Outstanding Achieve­ment in Game Design, Immersive Reality Game of the Year and Immersive Reality Technical Achieve­ment.

I Expect You To Die started as an exper­i­ment, where we set out to explore and imagine in VR what it would be like if you were superhero faced with perilous situ­a­tions in strange locales. What resulted was an incred­ibly fun and immersive secret agent game with mind-twisting chal­lenges, adren­a­line-fueled urgency and lots of humor,” explains Jesse Schell, CEO, Schell Games. To have our work consid­ered for multiple D.I.C.E. awards by the AIAS is a wonderful honor and very much appre­ci­ated.”

The winners will be announced at the 20th D.I.C.E. Awards ceremony on Thursday, February 23rd at the Mandalay Bay Conven­tion Center in Las Vegas. The Awards show will be live streamed from 7:30 to 9:30 PM PST at https://live.interactive.org.

About I Expect You To Die

I Expect You To Die is an award-winning virtual reality escape-the-room puzzle game where players take on the role of an elite secret agent attempting to survive dangerous missions using problem solving skills and wits. It’s a race to thwart the evil Dr. Zor without succumbing to surprising traps and nasty tricks that may cause an untimely demise. In the game, agents face four unique, chal­lenging levels, including being confined inside Dr. Zor’s car, trapped high on a window washing platform, deep under­water in a submarine and inside a booby-trapped hunting lodge – each deliv­ering a treach­erous and immersive expe­ri­ence, along with plenty of laughs and the occa­sional cigar. A special credits sequence at the beginning of the game readies players for upcoming missions and the dangers that lie ahead.

I Expect You To Die is now available for purchase at the US PlaySta­tion Store (US and Canadian consoles only) for $24.99 USD, and the Oculus Store for $24.99 USD. Play on the Oculus Rift, using Touch controllers, an Xbox controller, or a mouse, or on PlayStation®VR, using either a DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller or the PlayStation®Move motion controllers.
