Demo Details

Honeypot Espionage @PKTSizedHands (https://twitter.com/PKTSizedHands) is an online VR multiplayer shooter, focused on stealth combat, in which you are put against other Spies in a combat arena. The last man standing wins. As a Spy, you are completely invisible, but you will begin to materialize if you move, fire a weapon or set a trap. If you don’t want killed, stay still. Think Predator meets SuperHot. The slower you move in real life the harder you are to see. You can set traps and decoys to trick other players into revealing their location to try to come out on top.

Multiple game modes allow you to fight the way you want. Team up with others to break into the High Security Government buildings to steal classified documents. Guard the VIP and keep them hidden from potential assassins. Classic Death match where you use your abilities to search out others to get the first and last kills. Stay hidden, only move to Kill.

Parking/Transportation

Street parking can be challenging - there is paid parking nearby that is cheaper, and under the building which can be costly. The Eastside VR Meetup is located just a few blocks away from the
Bellevue Transit Center (http://metro.kingcounty.gov/tops/parknride/boarding/bellevue-tc.html), which serves 20 bus routes!

The building doors lock after 5pm. But you can still enter on the north facing door to Tangerine Thai Cuisine and walk up to the lobby.
