VRstudios Delivers New Men in Black VR Experience


VRstudios, creator of multiplayer virtual reality (VR) attractions for location-based entertainment announced a new exclusive experience for Dave & Buster’s proprietary multiplayer virtual reality simulator, Men in Black: Galactic Getaway.


The interactive experience is now available to play nationwide, putting players into service as “accidental” MIB agents on a mad dash to stop a notorious alien gang from making a getaway in their spaceship.


The Men in Black universe comes to life as players chase down and apprehend a wacky crew of alien criminals who have stolen deadly jars of glowing green goo and insect parts (of the planet-destroying kind) before they escape from Earth. Two aliens act as guides guiding players every step of the way as they make their way through New York and London, wreaking havoc and causing lots of destruction, and finally to a showdown of epic proportions.


The game combines different  endings with other elements of variability, including subtle differences in gameplay, randomized player characters, seven different randomly assigned weapons, and dialogue that responds real-time to your performance. This means Men in Black: Galactic Getaway is never the same experience twice. Also featured are enemies that change in scale, a transforming taxi cab, and tons of gags.


VRstudios teamed up again with development partner Strange Reptile (Star Trek: Dark Remnant for Dave & Buster’s) to create this latest location-based entertainment experience.


“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, VRstudios’ Vice President of Creative Development. “We have combined the classic elements of Men in Black with some all-new story elements, weapons and characters, plus gags galore, including a surprise finale that not only evokes the charm of Men in Black but also will definitely put a smile on your face!”


Building on a very successful initial nationwide deployment in June 2018, VRstudios’ VRcade Attraction Management Platform (AMP) now manages and operates 140 individual simulators, each running four unique game titles, in Dave & Buster’s locations across North America.
