VR Arcade – Kwalee Quarterly Team Building Event

This is team Kwalee reporting back from ‘the other side’. You won’t believe what we’ve been through. Afterall, it sounded like a simple mission:

  • Head to VirtualX VR Arcade in Birmingham’s Bullring for quarterly team building event
  • Enter ‘the other side’ for the purposes of team bonding and, of course, associated jollies
  • Perhaps return with stories of virtual glory, conquest and personal triumph – you know, if we felt like it

Despite our best efforts, ‘the other side’ has claimed more than a few of our fellow compatriots:

Michael – “Racing+zombies+plank=a good day” – Brave Michael, concealing his true feelings for the benefit of the team.

Jess – “Before I stepped off the virtual plank it gave me the exact same feeling I got before I had to bungee jump” – Horror? Dread? An eternity in purgatory?

Elliot – ‘It blew my virtual pants off!’ – Ironic really, as the only part of him we could find were his pants.

As you can tell, we’ve all returned with a slight shadow over our hearts.

Admittedly, ‘the other side’ had some perks – shooting virtual goons in an HTC Vive, diving around the room like a bunch of B-rated movie stars, being one. The VR racing was fun too. Oh, and the silly games where we got to just throw stuff around.

Apart from that though – HORROR LIES ON ‘THE OTHER SIDE’ – BEWARE! WE SHALL NEVER RETURN FOR FEAR OF THE HORROR!

Well. Maybe we’ll go back once.

Or Twice.

Or now?
