Salakapakka – Speakeasy, a VR prohibition era experience

Salakapakka – Finnish for speakeasy – is a Samsung Gear VR game fully designed, developed and produced by 3rd year students from Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. With a 10-week production cycle we set out to create a game for Yle that would be both fun and an interesting peek at life in prohibition era, 1920s Finland.

Don a pair of VR goggles, take the role of a detective and step into an inconspicuous café that surely has nothing to hide…Or does it?
