I fell in love with I Expect You to Die the moment it began. With a breathtaking Bond style title sequence and snazzy title tune to match. A fantastic moment the really captures how great VR can be.
From the moment it starts I Expect You to Die wants you to know what it’s all about. It’s a spy flick. You’re the suave secret agent in a dangerous situation. You’ve got to keep your cool to escape certain death. It plays up the cheese factor a bit. Especially regarding things like the fact you have telekinesis. Which is necessary for the game but obviously a tad silly in universe.
So what is the game? Well it’s a series of puzzle missions. The best way I can explain it is a small scale escape the room puzzle. You’re stuck in a deadly situation and you’ve got to use your wits and the assortment of junk around you to figure your way out of it all. It’s incredibly well made and the puzzles always make you feel suitably clever. As far as I’m concerned it’s a good standard of VR game design and a must have for anyone with a headset.
