New Escape-The-Room Style VR Game Chal­lenges Players to Solve Missions and Outsmart Tricky Situ­a­tions in Attempts to Make It Through Over-the-Top, Deadly Situ­a­tions

PITTSBURGH, Pa. (December 5, 2016) — Got what it takes to be a secret agent? It’s time to find out. Renowned game developer Schell Games today announced that its award-winning, super spy VR game I Expect You To Die is now available for Oculus Touch.

I Expect You To Die is a virtual reality puzzle game where players take on the role of an elite secret agent as they attempt to survive deadly situ­a­tions in immersive dangerous locales by completing missions using problem solving skills and wits. It’s a race to thwart the evil Dr. Zor without succumbing to traps and tricks that may cause an untimely demise. Players face four unique situ­a­tions, including being confined inside their evil nemesis 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 intense expe­ri­ence, along with plenty of humor and an occa­sional cigar, that only a super spy can handle. In addition, players will be treated to a special credits sequence at the beginning of the game, preparing them for the dangers that lie ahead. For those who accept the game’s challenge, the question is – Will you survive?” The answer – perhaps.” But we do expect you to DIE.

Adding to the game’s spy thriller theme, I Expect You To Die includes the voice talents of esteemed actor Anthony Daniels, known for playing C-3PO in the Star Wars™ films, among many other roles. In addition, Naomi Kyle, actor, producer, and current on-air host for IGN Enter­tain­ment, lends her voice to the game’s submarine level.

I Expect You To Die was designed from the ground up for VR to deliver an immersive secret agent meets escape-the-room expe­ri­ence that is intense, chal­lenging, fun and leaves you deter­mined to go back and try again and again,” said Jesse Schell, CEO of Schell Games. With Oculus Touch, players are grabbing and manip­u­lating objects first-hand as they think through problems and try to complete each step without making a fatal error. It’s like you put on the headset and find yourself inside your favorite British spy movie.”

I Expect You To Die was released as a demo on Oculus Rift developer kits in 2015, and quickly became a fan favorite among VR and video game media and players. Since then, the game has been honored with multiple industry awards for best gameplay, best VR expe­ri­ence and best game design. In addition to Oculus Touch, the game can also be played on the Oculus Rift using an Xbox One controller or a mouse. The game will retail on the Oculus Store for $24.99 USD.

I Expect You To Die will be available later this month in North America for PlayStation®VR.
