V.I.C.E.

Welcome to the Virsix Institute of Counter-Espionage, or as we like to call it, V.I.C.E. Working outside official channels, V.I.C.E. is dedicated to neutralizing current global threats without the restrictions of government intervention. Our methods are a little unusual, but our clients include the C.I.A., MI6, Mossad, the governments of Monaco, Japan, Senegal, and a number of private organizations that choose to remain unknown.

V.I.C.E. is an immersive spy adventure, played at a physical location. Players arrive and are given a quick introductory video in the “briefing room and then proceed to solve a series of puzzles at various stations around the room. Some puzzles take the players out into the real world and some require the assistance of friends. The experience is a hybrid between a movie, a video game, and a scavenger hunt. The intro video is embedded after the credits.
