“Resist hurrying and savour every sliding panel and twist of a dial. The Room is the cave of mysteries from everyone's childhood; a perfect encapsulation of the fear and pleasure of discovery”

“Excellently produced, clever puzzles and spine-tingling music”
Game Informer

“You're encouraged to slowly savor every last morsel this wonderful gem serves up. A must play, indeed.”

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.

Appreciation well deserved

A very beautiful puzzle game. I recommend it straight away. Normally, I'm not really into puzzle game. And I tend to doubt mobile ports. But this game has done it well. Here's why.

  • First of all, you will notice the visual. If you were to compare it to the original mobile version, it has a significant improvement. The textures of the object are beautifully done. By this, I mean it looks real as well as beautiful. You can recognise the texture easily and know what the object is made of. This helpfully provides in the overall immersion of the game, just like you are interacting with real objects.

  • You use your mouse mainly for this game. To zoom in. To change your point of view. And to interact with objects. Mobile ports sometimes give a feeling that doesn't quite 'clicked' when it comes to PC. This game is seamless. In some ways, it's like interacting with 3D objects in some softwares. Plus the well-made visual, I'm glad this game has a PC version.

  • A little bonus is the music, it gives the atmosphere of something mysterious and maybe a little scary is about to be revealed. My imagination makes it worse/better, thinking that I'm about to discover a dark secret. XD. My point being I get quite immersed in this game, feeling like a scholar locked in his dimly lit room uncovering dark secrets. Game effects plus your imagination sure makes things more exciting doesn't it?

A little irrelevant but this game has steam cloud. I love games with steam cloud. *-*

Seriously though, I am writing this review right after finishing the game, and even though it was quite short, it was worth every single penny. Very good story, very good puzzles. Definitely a must for anyone who likes any sort of puzzle games.

Seriously, just buy it, and play it. Do yourself a favor.
