A mysterious invitation leads to the attic of an abandoned house. In the room is a cast-iron safe laced with strange carvings and on top, a note from your distant companion. It promises something ancient and astonishing concealed in the iron chamber - you need only find a way in.

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!
http://store.steampowered.com/app/425580

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.

Overall this is a great game. The graphics are beautiful, crisp, and well thought out. The game play itself is very intuitive. The puzzles are not too challenging though, they do not require a lot of logical reasoning. They are fun though.

The only Con with this game is that it is too short. It only takes a couple or so hours to beat and then there is no replay ability; however, it is cheap and fun.

Excellent puzzles which are a challenge without being too insane. Very nice graphics and an appropriately chilling Lovecraftian atmosphere. The game is quite short though, roughly 2 hours.

I've always been a big fan of the room series since it first appeared on mobiles. now that it's available on pc, i'll be getting every part of the series. I also recommend playing them in the dark with headphones on, it makes it even better.

The puzzles are clever and well designed, the atmosphere sucks you in, and the story that you progressively uncover as you progress is the cherry on top.

Pretty cool game. Cheap, nice looking, mysterious sounding, but very short. You get start in one room, and as you figure out how to solve the many puzzles, you continue to move forward, following the work of opne who came before you. The music reminds of games from long ago like Myst and The 7th Guest. Only took about 3 hours to beat, and while the puzzles weren't exremely hard, there weren't a piece of cake either.
Fun while it lasted.

To start, The Room is a mobile game, just to get that out there, and we all know how mobile games with a PC release turn out on the PC, however, The Room is different. Fireproof remakes the game from the ground up to make sure it plays well on the PC, looks nice, and isn't another clunky mobile port.

To get to the actual gameplay, The Room is a neat little puzzle game with an interesting kind of mystery behind the story. This game requires you to be very observant and pick up on small details and remember every little thing about the room you're stuck in. Of course, if you have them enabled, hints can help you out, but I personally prefer to figure things out on my own. I used hints once or twice when I was really stuck and had no clue what to do, but with the hints, there is no need to use any form of outside walkthrough as long as you're patient and work at your own pace and don't try to rush through the game. The hints will get gradually more and more obvious as to what you need to do. Personally, for me, the game wasn't extremely hard, but it wasn't a walk in the park or anything. If you don't use the hints, there's no hand-holding, it's all up to you to figure things out, besides the tutorial, obviously. The game took me about 2 hours to complete, so it's not a very long game, but it is a very fun and satisfying game to play when you figure out the puzzles. The Room Two took about the same amount of time for me, but the puzzles felt like they had more to do, it's just that I kinda had the hang of the tricks this game pulls and I figured things out quicker. According to my friend who plays them on mobile, The Room Three is much longer, but take that with a grain of salt.

At the time of writing this review, I've just beat The Room Two, which I just recently learned got a Steam release about a month ago. I figured I'd go back and write reviews for both games and try and spread the word. If you find that you enjoy the games, I highly suggest you go back and write reviews and spread the word to your friends, other wise The Room Three will not get a Steam release. It's all about player feedback for Fireproof.

What an simple yet amazing experience. I just went over a night to finish this game, and it is awesome. Nothing too special about the history nor much depth involved, but the atmosphere, puzzles, sound and little hints about the lore beneath are just jaw dropping.

I definately recommend this to anyone who likes being challenged, nothing "intelligence" based, just attention and some logic are needed. I loved this.

if you like puzzles with decent music, and just really nice layout, this is a game you should try.
honestly, i thought it was some kinda horror game and little amount of puzzle work (i reallly dont pay attention) but this game, as much as I DESPISE puzzle work and slow games, i adore this. its so well layed out and you can see how much work they put into it. soundtrack is a bit, repetitive, but very beautiful.
honestly, im about to buy the second game because i love it so much. its relaxing, it makes you think, its very well done and organized. by far hope to see more stuff from the Dev(s) on other games.

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.

Top shelf puzzle game. I had no idea what to expect and was enchanted with every new move you need to make to progress and solve the necessary objectives.

Graphically I was almost in love! Some of the scenes and individual items are amazing and when you complete one thing you think hell, you just want more and more.

Moods change from from 'what do I have to do here' to 'What on earth was that noise'? It can get quite mysterious and as I am not an expert in 'Alchemy', I often was wondering what will happen when I do this.

Don't worry as you will soon find out and what evolves from your efforts will keep you interested, so have no fear of that.

Seeing as I normally and 'FPS' type person, this was a big move away from what I would generally play but am I glad I did. Not that I still don't love a good 'ol shootemup, but this offered a break away from the usual.

I definitely do recommend and give this a rating of 8.5/10. If it was a longer game to play I would give it more.

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.
