A new kind of video game puts players inside the experience. It’s called immersive gaming.

Instead of going to a gaming center to play Blazer Tag or paintball, players enter a 12-by-12-foot box and work together to achieve game objectives. Tech expert Omar Gallaga wrote about immersive gaming for Wired. He told Texas Standard that Immersive Gamebox now has five locations in Texas.

Highlights from this segment: 

– Gamebox offerings include games based on popular movies and shows like “Squid Game” and “Angry Birds.” Players don visors before entering a room that’s filled with projected video screens and sensors.

– Players don’t shoot one another, but work together to accomplish tasks in the game. If you don’t complete a task on time, you die a “bloodless” death.

– The first Immersive Gamebox facility opened near Dallas. More locations are now operating in The Woodlands, Houston, and Cibolo, Texas, near San Antonio.
