This game is family friendly – there are no jump scares and the lights are on. There are, however, photos of zombies and some blood, so we suggest age 10+
As this stand-alone online game has been adapted from a real-life room, the locks, puzzles and blood bags (!) are authentically reproduced, so you feel you are in the room. And instead of there being a Game Master, there is an extensive hint system, including a full walkthrough if needed, so you will never be stuck.
The game can be played at any time, and although most teams complete the puzzles in around an hour, once you click ‘start’ you will have 72h to complete the game if you need to take a break.
Gone Viral is suitable for teams of up to 5 people logging in from different locations, for just €19.99!
Please note: Gone Viral was designed to be played on a computer, and may not work on a phone or tablet

⭐ “First time gamer … enjoyable and gripping, you felt you could lift the locks off yourself as if you were there.” Dan
⭐ “You can feel the love and care that went into making and digitizing this room … clean design, traditional good puzzles … coherent simple story. Lots of locks (we don’t mind), but also great signposting, so you didn’t spend your time trying out combinations on all locks available. You spent time on the puzzles and the flow of these were great … Just what the doctor ordered.” Anne
⭐ “… as lovers of zombie outbreaks we picked ‘Gone Viral’ for our first online game. It’s safe to say we will definitely be continuing to play escape games online! … The game was fun and very immersive. Considering we’ve played over 30 normal escape rooms, there were locks and puzzles we had never come across before and it was brilliant! … Absolutely fantastic, loved every minute” Miss Blue Berriexx (avatar version)
