    Shooty Fruity announcement at DNA VR

    We'd love to share exciting news with you!


    Amazing nDreams came along to DNA VR last week to announce their new title "Shooty Fruity" to VRFocus, UploadVR and others!

    They carried out a presentation together with a couple of trial sessions. We ourselves were among the few lucky ones who had a chance to try the game out.

    All the best for the developers! You can already check out the game on Steam. (Might be soon available at DNA VR as well)

    Major Update

    London's First Virtual Reality Arcade has just received a major update!

    We have tested our VR Escape rooms and they are now up and running. VR Escape rooms are the team games for up to 6 people where you will work together to solve puzzle, look for clues and communicate in order to progress further. Don't worry, if you are stuck at any point, our VR Masters will help you out and give hints where necessary. Real-life Escape rooms have become really popular in London, however, DNA VR is one of the first companies to bring VR Escape rooms to the masses. You will have just an hour to solve everything and get out. Currently we have 2 different options, Tales of Escape: where you have to investigate a creepy mystery in a butcher shop) and Alice in Wonderland VR stories (here you will need to fix the magic clock and restore order in Wonderland). We are working together with the content providers and are aiming at bringing at least 4 more VR Escape room experiences in the future. 


    You can already book Tales of Escape (a creepier grown-up version) or Alice in Wonderland (an option for the younger customers) here, just choose VR Escape rooms.


    We are listening to all the feedback very attentively. That is why we are also updating our multiplayer and single player library. We are adding VR Tennis (for 2) as well as a couple of cinematic experiences. We have noticed that multiplayers are by far the most popular category at DNA VR and are working on bringing you even more titles! 


    So if you are still looking for things to do, do not hesitate. Bring your friends and colleagues to DNA VR and Survive Zombie Apocalypse (up to 4 players), defend the castle with your bow and arrow (up to 4), fight back to back against hordes of robots (co-op), defuse a bomb together (2-3) and even Conquer Everest!

    How can a non-gamer enjoy Virtual Reality?

    With this post we are starting our series that will guide those who are interested in trying Virtual Reality in the right direction. 


    As we are preparing our VR Arcade for the imminent launch we have received an overwhelming amount of questions from our subscribers. Many of them while being aware of what Virtual Reality is in principle, were not so sure about a number of factors. Although those varied hugely depending on the age and interests, we have noticed some similarities among most of the enquiries that we received.

    We will briefly mention them here and will try to address each of them in turn.
