Stifled - Halloween VR Horror experience

Stifle your screams, the monsters can hear you.

Stifled is a multi-award winning, sound-based stealth thriller, where the only way you can see is by making sound - but be wary, the monsters in the dark can hear your fear.

Using unique echolocation-based graphics and innovative microphone-enabled gameplay, you’ll step into the shoes of David Ridley, a man whose mind is slowly fracturing under the weight of heartbreak, turning his world dark. A world where sound gives a glimpse of your surroundings but also attracts the attention of grotesque and terrifying creatures lurking in the dark.

For one week, GOVR cafe has setup a new dedicated - and isolated - room for experiencing Stifled in virtual reality. Step in, if you dare. This VR games has a PEGI 12 rating.

It’s going to be the most beautiful, tremendous game you’ve ever seen, believe us.

GOVR cafe and Maf’j Alvarez of Root Interactive are hosting a weekend-long live hackathon bringing developers, designers and artists from across the land to create an unapologetically all-out nappy-slinging world domination war game that brings out the egotistical power-hungry toddler in all of us.

‘Power Babies VR’ will be showcased at the cafe during the Brighton Digital Festival in October.

Audience weekend pass - no coding required!

We’re inviting people to be a part of the hackathon this weekend. As an audience participant, you’ll get to meet the developers, pitch ideas, test game features and mechanics and get a first look at the final outcome of the hackathon. You’ll also get a 15% discount off of your ticket to the official showcasing of ‘Power Babies VR’ during the Brighton Digital Festival this October.

Audience pass itinerary:

  • Saturday 5 October 5pm - 6pm:
    Introduction to the hackathon and game
    A brainstorming session to pitch ideas for the game
    Testing of features and mechanics built on the day

  • Sunday 6 October 10am - 11am:
    Recap of progress made in the first day of the hackathon
    Demo of ‘power babies’ made in the first day of the hackathon
    Brainstorming session to pitch ideas for two more ‘power babies’

  • Sunday 6 October 5pm - 6pm:
    Early showcase of outcome of hackathon
    Drinks with developers and artists

Weekend pass price: £12

Please note that hackathons involve a lot of improvisation, adaptation to developments on the day and progress through trial and error. As an audience member, you will get access to and participate in a work-in-progress, not a final product. The features and mechanics you will get to test may not be fully developed.

VR Sim Racing Weekend
to Jul 21

VR Sim Racing Weekend

Pedal to the metal, pure racing realism.


For one weekend, GOVR invites you to feel the full force of true-to-life VR racing. Take the wheel of professionally simulated and tested real-world cars from a variety of classes and eras, and race on virtual carbon-copies of the world’s most exhilarating race tracks.

Using an industry-grade, ultra-responsive set of steering wheel and pedals, you’ll experience high-precision VR racing with atmospheric conditions and weather physics that affect vehicle performance and handling in real-time. Our VR racing instructor will show you the ropes of VR racing and help you take the chequered flag. This isn’t a coin-operated, arcade game. This is pure racing realism.

Please note that VR racing can be a more intense and a less comfortable VR experience for some people than other experiences available at GOVR cafe.
