OUT NOW!! The Room Two: PC Edition

Following the release of 'The Room' on PC in 2014, we're proud to announce 'The Room Two' is OUT NOW for PC!

The Room Two continues the time-spanning journey of its predecessor while significantly expanding its unique puzzle gameplay. Follow a trail of cryptic letters from an enigmatic scientist known only as “AS” into a compelling world of challenging mystery and tactile exploration.

Development on this fully-enhanced HD version of The Room Two began shortly after the mobile release of The Room Three late in 2015 and has involved creating wholly new environments for each level as well as rebuilding and re-texturing every asset in the game.

About This Game

Fall into a world of bizarre contraptions and alchemical machinery with The Room, a BAFTA award-winning 3D puzzler from Fireproof Games. Follow a trail of cryptic letters and solve many unique devices in ever more extraordinary places, on a time-spanning journey where machinery meets myth.

The Room PC is a fully-enhanced HD release of Apple's 2012 iPad Game Of The Year, including the 'EPILOGUE' DLC that adds 20% more content and play time to the original release. This PC version of the game has been many months in the making and has involved recreating almost every asset in the game from the ground up.

Fireproof Games are a small independent team working in Guildford in the UK. We self-published our first game The Room in September 2012 and were stunned with both the critical success and our new-found fan-base, not to mention multiple international awards. The Room has changed our lives and we hope you enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed making it.

I bought this game on a whim, after looking through my library and not finding anything i wanted to play. I was not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by the quality and athmosphere. A short game but at a fair price. I can warmly recommend the game to anyone that likes puzzles and athmospheric games with a touch of mystery.

A nice little 2.5 hours of fun. The puzzle were just comlpex enough that they were a challenge, but not hard enough you feel like they're impossible. Worth the 5 dollar price tag, and definitely recommend to puzzle lovers, or just someone bored and looking for something to do.

A great puzzle solving game. Spent about 4 hours to finish it, sometimes I had to think hard to solve a puzzle, but in the end I only used the in-game Clues two or three times. The Clue system itself is a great pro of the game. The clues aren't given in the straightforward way, but are divided into parts, which can help the player jog their memory to find the solution on their own at each step (reminding the player about the steps they took - "What was this element doing?" - or actions they made earlier - "Doing this made this happen") before the final, most direct ("Do this and that on this" type) clue.

I also loved the graphics of this game. When the store site proclaimed that the graphics were enhanced for the PC version, they weren't lying. I saw only a few minor glitches, but none that impeded my progress. The ambient sounds also matched the eerie tone of the gameplay, supporting its progress into the... ah, but that would be a spoiler!

I will definitely buy the second part of this game. If you like short puzzle games that still require some serious thinking and memory work from you, I recommend The Room wholeheartedly.

Lovely little 3 hour game of mystery and wonder. A simple idea with a little (keep away from the hints if you can) challenge but perfectly executed. You can't go wrong picking this up on a steam sale.

This is a decent puzzle game, and if you don't encounter any flaws you'll almost certainly enjoy it. However, I have to mention that on the last puzzle I encountered a bug which was solved by changing the refresh rate on my monitor. It wasn't obvious that it was a bug, which caused me to waste a lot of time on the last puzzle of the game. Addressing the issue put something of a damper on the experience. Usually, I would find this kind of thing understandable, however I found reports of the bug I experienced on the forums and addressed by the developers from two years ago - it's a bit of a poor show it's not been sorted out yet...

Great game, I used to have this on the ipad, since I don't have one anymore I saw this game on here on sale, and for some reason passed it up so bought it @ full price ($5-$6, pretty cheap). I did beat this game pretty quickly but again, I've played it before, but it was still a bit of a challenge.

I highly recommend this game, I will be buying the second one when it goes on sale since I've played that (and the third one which as of the time of writing this review is not on steam). The third one is much harder than this one I found, but I hope the developers bring the third one out along with a 4th one ;).

If you've never played this game, do yourself a favour and give yourself a challenge, unlike many new games nowadays that are just straight forward and not challenging.

Highly recommended for people that enjoy puzzles that require you to think outside of the box, because the moment you get into the box, the next chapter starts :D. On a serious note - a quality game, despite short.

Short version: 85%
If you like puzzle boxes, then you will love The Room. It features five intricate but not impossible pieces of these mechanical wonders, resulting in a rather short, but really unique video game.

Long version:
An enigmatic puzzle box can be a great central plot line in any mystery thriller, this is probably why this game can be so alluring. Because ‘The Room’—despite its title—is actually a collection of five of these mysterious mechanical masterpieces.

Since this game was originally intended for mobile devices, the difficulty is kept within reasonable levels: depending on one’s affinity to mechanical puzzles, each could be solved in 15-40 minutes. Therefore, play time is short, but the unique experience it gives is more than worth its price, even without a discount.
Sadly, thanks to the nature of the game, it is almost impossible to tell in words why this little gem is so captivating, but thanks to the refund system, it is still safe for anyone to try it. Chances are, you won’t regret it.

Nice little puzzle game. Not insanely hard to beat. Took me about 3 hours to complete the whole game. In case you get stuck, game will give you hints. Which you don't need to use, if you don't want to.

The game was originally published as mobile game. The pc version was introduced later with some graphical improvements. There aren't any major issues with game. The mouse cursor has tendency of occasionally leaving the screen, while using multi-monitor setup. When trying to spin an object, movement can be more rapid than intended sometimes.

Price of the game in steam is around 5€. In comparison game costs just 1€ in Google Play store (I think Appstore has same price). It's up to you to decide, if you would rather play it on mobile or on pc. Alternatively you could just wait for sale. Personally I think game was worth 5€ I spent on it.

A nice puzzle game, good atmosphere thanks to the music and to many animated parts. It is very rich of details and has an interesting background story, with a lot of mistery and a pinch of unknown fear.

If you like puzzle boxes or point-and-click games in the vein of Myst/Riven, you'll LOVE this game. The atmosphere is beautiful and slightly creepy, the soundtrack is incredible, and the puzzles make you feel like a bona-fide wizard when you figure them out. All in all, a fantastic puzzle game and well worth the few bucks they're asking for it.

Beatable in about 2 hours, if you're a fan of puzzle games, definitely worth the money. Extremely clever puzzles and cool mechanical/steampunk themes. Controls good enough, as it was ported over to PC from mobile. Highly recommend this game.

A delightful combination of 'find the hidden object' and puzzle genres. I usually don't like find the hidden object -games at all. They feel tedious and boring but in The Room the search process felt really natural. In fact the gameplay felt more like exploration where instead of exploring a town or a building or an island, you explore a complex object. The puzzles were varied and usually interesting but often really easy.

Short (Takes ~2 hours to complete) but fun, interesting and higly atmospheric puzzle game. If you are one the lookout for an "Escape the room" kind of game, The Room is exactly what you are looking for.
