Gamers, brace yourself for this: the UK’s first live interactive arcade gaming venue is landing in London next month. Energize Games is preparing to change the landscape of gaming in London with their high-intensity games that will test your brains, your agility, and perhaps even your friendships.
At Energize Games, take up to four friends with you and choose from 11 different game rooms offering over 50 different games. There are both competitive and cooperative options for the games. You can work together with friends to win, or watch them crumble behind you as you race to victory. Along the way you’ll jump, duck, climb, crawl, dodge, and strategize your way through the games.
The games at Energize Games
The games offer 10 levels of increasing difficulty – that means the longer you play, the harder it gets. Basically, if you think it’s hard when you start, you ain’t seen nothing yet. You might have to scale light-up walls with motion sensor grips or dodge out of the way of rapid-fire laser beams. Or maybe you’ll find yourself desperately trying to solve puzzles in a room with hundreds of interactive buttons. Each game lasts between three and five minutes, and it’s up to you if you proceed to the next level of difficulty or restart the same game again.
All this doesn’t mean, however, that the experience is only for hardcore gamers. The neon-drenched retro-arcade aesthetic is sure to entice many to give it a go. And since you’re in charge of everything, there are no controllers or qualms about ‘which buttons do what’. Instead, you can just jump right into the action.
Oh, and by the way, when we say it’s physically challenging – we’re not joking. It’s like a proper workout, but gamified. They even suggest that players wear sportswear while participating, with gym or running shoes recommended.
Said Stefan Vargolici, Founder:
“We are thrilled to be opening our first Energize Games venue in London and can’t wait to bring this truly special and unique experience to the UK. Not only is the experience a brilliant way to spend time with friends, colleagues or family while testing your mind and body, it’s an incredible adrenaline-pumping challenge that can be done while having heaps of fun.”
