Game of the week: I Expect You To Die

I Expect You To Die is a puzzle game built for virtual reality. Become an elite secret agent as you attempt to survive the deadliest of situations to complete your missions. Each mission will require superb problem-solving skills, intellect and agility. I Expect You to Die can be played seated with the use of telekinesis to grab objects out of your reach. As the name suggests – you will die. A lot. Each puzzle can be solved several different ways, and each death will help bring you closer to completing your mission.
