The Ruins: VR Escape the Room reviews and comments

Translated by

I'd most like to give The Ruins a neutral Rating, but I don't go, so positive. The Puzzles are not particularly heavy and the Game is very short. I still Enjoyed it, as real "Roomscale" is used for this Game, which is very beneficial to The Immersion. Unfortunately, nice Game no longer. Points: 5/10

Product received for free A very nicely made escape Room Game in VR. The Puzzles are not too heavy and it is played through relatively quickly. More of An Escape Room for Beginners. Control, Graphics and Atmosphere are ok! My Curator page: http://store.steampowered.com/curator/30155555 Description: Https://www.youtube.com/watch? v = WmYgJEEwT _ g

The Ruins: VR Escape the Room is the third Escaperoom in this Series from Blue Entropy Studios. The Ruins is also a short Escaperoom game. It should be good to create in an Hour. Real Escape Games usually have this Time limit as well. The Game again Superbly Supports Roomscale, the Puzzles are not too heavy and the Graphics are fine. In the Bundle with the other two Games The Gleam and The Cabin you have a nice little Collection of Escape Play games. More breakout-proof Reviews: https://store.steampowered.com/curator/32170554/

The Ruins: VR escape, like its Predecessors The Gleam and The cabin, is an immersive Escape Room Game that, by Exploiting the Roomscale, lets the Player move perfectly. No controller handling, no Teleport, the Rooms are perfect at 2m x 2m (even with a bit less space) very playable. The Price of the Game is fine although I would be willing to pay more if the Escape Room game had more than 4-5 Rooms to offer. Especially the Ruins offers Potential for more Puzzles, Story and Spatial Exploration. I hope that in the next Game the developers dare to bring more Content like Puzzles, Rooms and Story. But otherwise quite suitable for the short Trip to the VR World.

Thumbs up for The Ruins ... Down would be unfair. But watch the Video. https://youtu.be/NxM_LZuO7NM Unfortunately, the black-tup white Rating of Steam Does not allow me a better Option. The Ruins is an Escape the Room Game ... As the Name already announces. ;-) First Of the time: The Game is very short. A experienced Player will have managed this in 20-30. The Puzzles are not necessarily always easy but unfortunately very boring. It doesn't really want to create a mood. However, the Soundtrack and Setting The Story is at a much higher Level. For the Price, however, you should be happy to pack a few more Puzzles. + Good Sound and Setting + Puzzles are solvable + story available + Room Scale (HTC Vive)-The Graphics Are good but not coherent bulk short game-Boring puzzles conclusion: The Game could make more of itself. There are Good Approaches, but it seems as if it wasn't finished.
