What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're a small indie team, so it's hard to get a lot of QA data, and we want to make the game more polished.
We want to get as much feedback as possible through Steam Early Access to improve the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This may change depending on our internal circumstances, but we're looking at about 6 months of early access.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Depending on player feedback, what we add in the full release will vary. We're currently considering smoothing out puzzle hints and puzzle locations. There's also the possibility of adding a few new puzzles. However, our main goal is to make it bug-free and overall polished.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, the Early Access version allows you to play a nearly complete game from the opening map to the final map.
Inventory items used to overcome puzzles on each map are also available without restriction.
Players can earn achievements and hidden achievements.

We're working on making the puzzle difficulty and puzzle organization smoother, and we'll be adding more puzzles and items in the future.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We don't plan to change the price of the full version, but we may consider raising it if the number of features added in the full version is greater than we anticipated.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“All the feedback of the players posted on the community page or in forums will be considered at the moment of adding new content or improving some features of the game.”

About This Game

Forbidden Art is a VR escape room puzzle game where you escape from a killer's secret lair.
Start in the dungeon and work your way through secret passages, studies, morgues, vents, chapel, and more to escape without being seen by the killer.



-The beauty of VR is that it allows players to be fully immersed in the environment. We created the backgrounds with a focus on reality to give players the ultimate immersion experience. Feel the killer's lair in VR, a converted abandoned chapel in a remote village in South Korea.


This feature was added for players who play seated or are unable to stand for long periods of time due to health reasons.
The rotation function provides instant and smooth rotation and allows players to choose the way they want to play.
Height adjustment offers crouching, standing, and a hybrid mode that allows players to operate both modes with a single button.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy Forbidden Art!


-Some areas in the game are very dark, to the point where you can't proceed without a light source. You can use a lighter or flashlight to help you see better in these areas.


-"Forbidden Art" is a VR game that supports "6m X 6m Roomscale Mode".
The entire map of the game is built to fit a 6m X 6m real-world space, and players can actually walk around and play in all the spaces in the game instead of just pressing buttons on the controller.
If players have access to a 6m X 6m play area, we highly recommend playing in the "6m X 6m Roomscale Mode".

Of course, we realize that not all players have access to a 6m by 6m space.
Therefore, we also offer the "Controller Movement Mode", which allows players who do not have the space to enjoy "Forbidden Art" in VR without any restrictions.


-You can grap and interact almost every object in the game, and some of them have special interactions.

🔸 There are no in-game hints to help you escape.
Some of the puzzles can be quite challenging. However, all the clues are in the space you're trapped in. Use the items you have in your inventory, observe the space carefully, and look for ways to escape.
Use all your abilities to escape the dangerous and terrifying hideout created by a psychopathic killer!

::C A U T I O N::
Before first starting the game, make sure there is enough cleared space surrounding you,
with no furniture or any other items around, which may cause injury whilst wearing the headset.
Ensure all motion controllers are fully charged.

:: Update . 23. 04. 10 ::
Currently, production is progressing based on Unreal Engine 5.1. It will be released with high quality content, so please give us a lot of interest!
