VRStudios creates Men in Black VR attraction for Dave & Buster's
23 May 2019 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
The attraction was developed in partnership with indie studio Strange Reptile
VRStudios, creators of turnkey multiplayer VR attractions for location-based entertainment, has
announced developed a new experience exclusive to Dave & Buster's, a US-based
restaurant and entertainment chain.

Called Men in Black: Galactic Getaway, the attraction is billed as a 'zany, action packed interactive experience' and transforms players into unwitting MIB agents tasked with preventing a gang of infamous aliens escaping.

Joined by two wisecracking alien guides, players travel across London and New York to recapture the escaped aliens before they can destroy the planet.

Developed in partnership with independent studio Strange Reptile, the experience features a number of variable elements such as randomised player characters and randomly assigned weapons as well as a range of different endings to ensure that players never get the same experience twice.

"We are extremely proud of our latest game's incredibly rich and deep experience that will keep players coming back for more," said Chanel Summers, VP of Creative Developement at VRStudios.

"We have combined the classic elements of Men in Black with some all-new story elements, weapons and characters, plaus gags galore, including a surprise finale that evokes the charm of Men in Black."
