Testers for VR Game Wanted


We have a call to action for you guys. We need testers for our VR game Trapped. To take part you’ll need to have a Gear VR and a Gear VR compatible smartphone from the list below:

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 5
  • Samsung Galaxy S6
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+
  • Samsung Galaxy S7
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+


There are a few ways you can help us out. If you don’t have the hardware but know somebody who does then you can send them this link. You can sign up to our mailing list at We’ll add your contact to the official testing portal and you will receive updates from there, we promise not to sell your email or spam you. Oculus do ask us that we’ve obtained permission from all users that allow them to send communications to you on our behalf though so know by going this route you’ll be agreeing to these terms.

I agree that I have obtained consent from all individuals included in my user list in order for Oculus to send communications on my behalf. I authorize Oculus to send communications to these users and indicate the communications is from me. I agree to indemnify and hold Oculus harmless for any claims or damages arising from the failure to obtain the required consent from applicable users.

It seems a little strange to us but hey, it’s one of their terms that we’re agreeing to in order to test our game on their platform.

You can also download the .apk (Android Application Package) directly from You will need to have developer mode activated on your device and allow “unknown sources” to install this version correctly. Going this route will mean that you won’t have automatic updates so you’d likely be testing an increasingly older version of the app unless you check back at the above URL periodically.

We ask all testers to send feedback through so we may improve the game over time.

Thanks for reading, you can follow us all over the internet.
