Play The Room Syndrome

 

Just Updated

Hey all!
Big patch time!

This patch brings a lot of fixes and a couple of quality of life updates!
First and foremost, all endings should now be fixed. Before there was a massive amount of bugs and inconsistencies with the endings, aka, the wrong ending being displayed, to multiple endings playing out a once. This should now be resolved! If you encounter any further issues with the endings, let me know!

Next, a couple of missing UI elements have been fixed, and most importantly, I changed the interaction system to be a bit more consistent. This should make it so there is a lot less fiddling to interact with things.

In the same vain, You may now use the mouse wheel to scroll through the frequencies with more precision! Thanks to "That Martin Guy" for the suggestion!

And lastly, you are now able to run twice as fast by holding the "shift" key to sprint! Hopefully this will make trying to get some of the other endings a little less tedious.

Recharged Regards!

Release!

Surprise! Well would you look at that. I actually released on time anyway. The game is out now and playable. I hope you all enjoy!

Reheated Regards,

Trailer & Another Update

For starters, the trailer is up! I'm using this to distract you from the fact I'm once again pushing the release back due me being a little bit of a dumb-dumb. Because I'm a bit of an idiot, I failed to complete a series of key tasks that are required for me to actually hit the release button on time. So... It's out of my hands now. I can say that the game Is pretty much complete and I am mostly waiting for some key things to happen before I can release. So sit tight! It's almost here!

Update

So quick update for those interested. I'm going to push the release date back to the 1st of November due to a couple of issues. First, the game is nearly complete, but I am still cleaning up some elements of development and it will not be complete soon enough to get the build reviewed in time. Secondly, two quite large games are also releasing on the 25th and It probably isn't the best decision to release on that exact date. So please be patient as the game is cleaned up and readied for release!

Slightly Lukewarm Regards!

Release Date!

The release date for The Room Syndrome has been set for the 25th! I believe if development continues to go as smoothly as it has for the last two weeks, then I should be able to guarantee the 25th. Though like all development processes, I can't really predict the future, and I may hit an unexpected snag or roadblock that could slow progress to an extent. But with that said, I am confident that I will be able to release the game on time.

So with that, I'll get back to work, and hopefully all you lovely people try out The Room Syndrome upon release!

The Warmest of Regards!
Jesse C.

Coming Soon

It's real, It's here, and it's coming soon.

About This Game

The (Game)

Isolation breaks an individual down to their core elements. Isolation in a small enclosed space, takes that person, and removes all hope. Even the notion of escape loses meaning after a while. Observe, while you explore the mysterious room, traveling through time using an antique radio, as you watch a man succumb to the room syndrome.




The (Room)

The Room Syndrome is a short puzzling experience. Unravel time travel and explore the room throughout the timeline. Find the solution to your escape, and solve the mystery of the room's melancholy resident.




The (Syndrome)

As you explore, uncover the history and the future of the room's inhabitant, and discover their story. Be sensitive and observant, because your choices may have consequences, and the characters could react to your actions.




The (The)

Being my first game published on Steam, I felt it was right to release it for free. It is a short and meaningful experience that I believe you will find fascinating.
