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.

The Room is an atmospheric first person 3 D puzzle game .

Gameplay 7/10
You solve all of the puzzles in first person and rotate and combine various objects to solve the riddles . Some of them are quite tricky and others are quite easy .It took me around 3,5 hours to finish the game including the DLC , so I'd call it short .It's very atmospheric and also kinda dark lovecraftian feeling to it .

Music 7/10
Nice atmospheric sound , sometimes you hear the cracking of a door or something , but other than that nothing worth mentioning .

Graphic 7/10
Nicely modeled and very detailed 3 D objects that can be rotated , e.g. a table , a box .

Supports Steam Cloud and has Steam Trading Cards

Definitely recommended for casual puzzle-gamers .

A great and quick puzzle game that will have you looking everywhere, and in one place only, at the same time. What is in the box? You must find out. While this game is quick and has a small background story, it is still really neat and something different for any type of gamer.

Pros:
- Good backgorund story
- Very challenging puzzle game
- Simple, yet eloquent.

Cons:
- Relatively short game; It depends on how long it takes you to figure things out.

Verdict?
I completely recommend this game. As I previously stated, this is a great game despite its overall length. But this is simply a very smart game and a great puzzle to solve. As such, I recommend this game to any gamer, especially puzzle players.

Short game but very beautifully done.

The puzzles are not extremely hard and very creative.
