The Room |

The Room The Room is a 2012 puzzle video game developed by British-based Fireproof Games. The game was originally developed for the iOS mobile platform and released in September 2012. The Android version followed as part of a Humble Bundle in March 2013 and was subsequently released on Google Play. It is a three-dimensional puzzle game that presents the player with a series of strange boxes that have a number of physical mechanisms on them. The player is challenged to figure out how to open each one – typically by undoing a series of locks – to access another puzzle box within it. The Room has received positive praise, and the iOS version received several awards. The game has sold more than 1 million copies, allowing Fireproof to develop an upcoming expansion and a sequel to the title.

The game uses a variety of motions enabled by mobile device touchscreens to simulate actions in real life, such as looking around the device, turning keys, and activating switches. Through the game, a story involving the research of an unnamed person into the Fifth Classical Element, “Null” is described by notes found through the various box puzzles.

Room presents gamers with a series of locked boxes and safes alongside a string of clues to help you determine what’s inside… The first box is offered as a tutorial to the game’s controls, which demonstrate how to move around the box and interact with features of the box. The player has a small inventory for items like keys found in compartments in the box. A key inventory element is a special lens that, in-game, allows the player to see things made from the Null element. The lens can generally be equipped at any time to see these secrets, often requiring the player to manipulate the view to align secrets into a coherent symbol. The goal is to fully unlock each puzzle box, extracting a small but more complicated box within it.

Game Tips

Every object is rendered with stunningly lifelike tactile precision–each key must be turned and each dial must be spun, and with each code you crack, the closer you come to deciphering the secrets powering the narrative. A magical eyeglass gives you the perspective necessary to make sense of it all, but comprehension is fleeting–each solution poses even more questions, immersing you deeper and deeper into The Room’s dark, foreboding world.

The Room is currently available for $1.99 on Google play store. It requires Android version 2.0.1, here are some of the game landscape screenshots:
