Escape room puzzler. The Room combines gentle exploration and lateral thinking with a healthy dose of getting hands-on with puzzle boxes. I found the designers really utilised VR very well as I used dexterity with both hands to prod and wriggle and manipulate certain puzzle elements in order to get them to work.
A handy optional 3 level hint system meant that I could tailor how much assistance I needed for the puzzles. The only time I needed it were when I didn’t realise that a certain (small) handle could be grabbed, or a certain item would fit in a particular place, otherwise most of the puzzles and clues, whilst at times tricky, could be understood with a little bit of thought.
The vibe of the game has a light horror element, and I am no good with horror, especially in VR, and so it took me a long time to build up the courage to play certain parts. I feel silly now though as nothing went ‘boo’ there are no jump scares or things that move or in general go bump. So if you are like me, then be brave and reassured, you can get through this game. To me the game had a certain “eternal darkness” vibe (from the GameCube) but thankfully with all the scary bits removed, because otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to handle it in VR.
The graphics are fantastic throughout and this helps with the immersion.
The game uses locomotion and snap turn, and items cannot be dropped (if you drop them they disappear and return back in your inventory) whilst at first I saw these as flaws, they all make sense to keep the puzzling element tight and concise (other than snap turn, smooth turn would be nice, but don’t think this was in the options.?) . The items looked pretty and I was impressed with the detail and moving parts of certain items as they reacted to the movement in my hands.
If a sequel to this game came out I would be delighted to buy it.
Amazing! So much fun! Really impressed with the creativity of this game! 😍Going into this game not going to lie I was a bit nervous that it was going to be scary, it wasn’t and the ghosts stay far away😆 They actually help you solve the puzzles. It’s like an escape room, where you have to figure out clues to get through each challenge and clear the room to find the relic. Parts of the game were Egyptian themed which I found thrilling! There were so many fun things to look at and they paid attention to detail. Such a fun experience!
This is a beautiful game, and although it’s not a very long game it’s long enough for the amount of thought that they put into it! It was so much fun, please please make more rooms!!! Worth every penny! And ready for that DLC!!!!
Good puzzles and mechanics. Can we get a sequel please?!?! Really enjoyed playing this game. I feel like the game really used the new options VR offers really well. Being able to puzzle in a VR environment were one is a lot less limited by the laws of physics etc. really made it a worthwhile and different experience. Hoping for a sequel to experience more of these mind bending puzzles!
素晴らしい脱出ゲーム このゲームのすべてが気に入りました。とてもおすすめです。 I Expect you to Die "が好きなら、このゲームの難易度は高いと思います。このゲームの創造性は似ていて、ユニークで面白い仕組みのパズルがいくつもあります。5つのメインロケーションがあり、それぞれに複数のエリアがあり、アンロックして探せる場所が徐々に増えていきます。デザイナーは、それぞれのロケーションをさまざまな方法で大きくしており、それぞれのロケーションが他のロケーションとは大きく異なっています。 パズルは多種多様で、同じパズルを何度も解くことはありません。単純なパズルもあれば、何段階にもわたるパズルもあり、また、すでに行ったことのある場所に戻ってくるものもあるので、型にはまった考え方ではクリアできないのです。超難問というわけではなく、実にクリエイティブなのです。そして、もし行き詰まったら、慈悲深いヒントシステムも用意されているので、使おうと思えば使えます。 I Expect You to Die」のゲームと違って、これはユーモラスではありません。ハリー・ポッター』の緊迫したドラマチックなシーンのように、暗くて不気味なのですが、ホラーではありません。何も襲ってこないし、飛び降りるような恐怖もない。ただ、暗くて不気味で不気味で、驚くほどよくできているのです。私はホラーが全く好きではないのですが、このゲームは大好きです。何が起こるかわからないと、常に気を張っていられました。
AMAZING escape room game! I loved everything about this game. I recommend it HIGHLY! If you like the "I Expect you to Die" games, then this is your level of puzzle difficulty. It's similar in it's creativity, with the puzzles using several unique and interesting mechanics. There are five main locations, each with multiple areas within, and progressively more places to unlock and search. The designers smartly make each location bigger than the last in different ways, and each location is very different from the others. The puzzles are a wide variety of different kinds, so you aren't solving the same puzzle over and over. Some puzzles are simple, others take multiple steps, and some bring you back to a place you've already been so you can't use cookie cutter thinking to get through. It's not super hard, it's just really creative. And if you get stuck, there is a merciful hint system you can use if you want to. Unlike the "I Expect You to Die" games, this isn't humorous. It's dark and spooky, like the tense, dramatic scenes in Harry Potter, but it's not horror. Nothing attacks you and there are no jump scares. It's just dark and spooky and creepy and amazingly well done. I do not like horror at all, but I loved this game. It kept me on my toes always wondering what was just around the corner. The graphics are some of the best I've seen on the quest 2, and each environment is well designed, unique from the others, and makes great use of textures, lighting and sound. It's a very quiet game, which ads to the Hitchcock like spookiness. WHAT WAS THAT SOUND? Maybe just the wind...? If you like puzzle games and you don't mind a little spooky, creepy atmosphere, you will love this game. I've played to the end, and I know I'm going to play it again. Design, mechanics, difficulty, creativity, variety, and experience, ALL five stars!
More please! I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. The puzzles were challenging enough that they made you stop and think but not so challenging that you're pulling your hair out and getting stuck. It does have a bit of a spooky atmosphere but luckily there are no jump scares or creepy things chasing after you. The story seemed a little muddled, however with that being said I do have ADD so maybe I just wasn't paying close enough attention 😅 I am relatively new to VR but gameplay seemed quite smooth with easy to learn controls. My only wish is that the game was longer. I played it in 3 sit downs and would guess that I finished it in about 6 hours. If you like puzzle games I highly recommend this one. I hope there will be more of these games coming out in future. Well done 👏
Amazing Story and Puzzles! I played the original The Room game on my iPad but lost interest before finishing. The VR experience adds so much and kept me hooked from start to finish. Enjoyed it the whole way through.
I’d love to see the gang at Fireproof Games take on a full scale multiplayer VR escape room requiring players to work together to solve the puzzles. I think that would be awesome!
Best game so far!! It is not a multi-player but my partner and I played together simultaneously while on the phone with each other. (He lives two hours away). We worked together, having to describe what and where we were going. This was great for bonding and relationship building. The game is fantastic. Riddles and clues guild you in performing tasks, collecting objects, and solving puzzles while exploring the coolest places. The graphics are stellar and you forget that you are in your house and feel like you are really there. I think anyone would love this game. To the developers, please please make more rooms and mysteries!!!
Great game. What an enjoyable game. The rooms were rich in detail. The puzzles weren’t impossible. The transitions and story line were good. Highly recommend having the hints on. The organ puzzle was difficult since I couldn’t keep the keys in place while watching (you’ll understand). The others I eventually got. The only disappointment was that I finished it.
So freaking COOL! 今までプレイした中で最高のゲームでした。私の好みにぴったりです。パズルが大好きで、ちょっと不気味な感じがするくらいです。先に進めば進むほど良くなっていく。グラフィックと設定に驚きました。ストーリーはとてもクール。ジャンプ移動型の起き攻めではなく、少し歩き回れるようになればいいなと思いますが、それもすぐに克服できました。でも、すぐに克服できました。唯一の欠点は、パート2がないことです...どうか、このようなゲームをもっと作ってください。大好きです!
So freaking COOL! This was the BEST game I have ever played. Right up my alley. I loved the puzzles, and there is just enough of a little creepiness to it. The farther you go the better it gets. I was amazed by the graphics and the settings. The storyline is so cool. I do wish you could walk around in it a bit instead of just jump travel type waking but I got over that pretty quick. The only downside is there’s not a part 2.. please please please make more games like this. Love it!!
Fun Atmospheric Puzzler. This is a great game. The puzzles and the atmosphere make it really engaging. I loved pottering about trying to figure out the next clue. The lack of free movement was a little annoying at first but it makes sense for the game once you get into it, and it works well. Give it a go. It’s a fun world to get lost in!
Great addition to The Room franchise! I have played the first three Room games on pc and they were each fun and entertaining puzzle games. I saw they did a VR one and grabbed it right away once it was on sale. The mechanics work really well in VR and made the game very fun. If you like puzzle/escape room type games, this is one to get.
Amazing game! Just finished playing this game.. it was amazing. I enjoyed every bit of it. The puzzles are not too easy so you can finish the game in one day, and not too hard so you give up. The hints are handy but I say don't use them much and enjoy figuring out the clues on your own. The feel and design of the rooms are realistic and really makes you feel like you're in there solving a mystery! If you enjoy detective stories and like following clues, this game is for you!
Puzzle room greatness! My bestie and I played this together via casting to the tv. She is not a gamer but I am. Our first round I manned the headset and she watched and we made our way through. The second room I said why don’t you try and I didn’t get to touch the headset again she was having so much fun. She’s pricing her own headset now cause she was so into the experience. It was such a great intro to this medium. The puzzles are challenging in places but really rewarding once you have that “ah ha!” Moment. Highly recommend I’d say we got maybe 6 to 8 hours out of the game over a few days. I’m looking forward to watching other friends and family try their hands at it!
Best game ever!!!! This game is so amazing. My daughter and I worked on it, using separate profiles. It was sooo real. Time would just fly by. I loved that there were hints if you needed them, the graphics were intense. Sooo real. I had my daughter talk to me sometimes when I was too immersed in the game. I pray they make more of these escape rooms. I will support any escape rooms that they do. Well worth the cost!!!
初めての脱出部屋。 VRも初めて、ゲームも正直初めてです 怖くないゲームや、飛び抜けたものがないかと思い、おすすめを聞きました The Roomはとてもおすすめだったので、挑戦してみました。大満足です。高所恐怖症の私ですが、なんとかなりました。とても楽しく、かつチャレンジングな作品でした。 続編作ってください!!!!
My first escape room. I’m new to VR and new to gaming honestly! I asked for game suggestions that weren’t scary and things that didn’t jump out at me! The Room was highly recommended so I gave it a shot. LOVED IT! I only got a bit leery with heights lol but I managed! This was so much fun yet challenging. PLEASE make a sequel!!!!
Fantastic experience! I am not a fan of horror or scary games at all and I had my doubts about this one. But I was so pleasantly surprised I am looking for more by the game producers! The puzzles were challenging but doable and their were ample clues when needed. The supernatural/ scary elements were just enough to create a great game environment.
Best VR Escape Room. Dear Fireproof Gamesteam, this game is a great touchdown!!!! For me it's really a perfect VR game; Atmosphere, graphics, the Gameplay, the puzzles (are fair; some of them are simple, some of them are difficult; if you've stucked you have an opportunity to get hints), the story; I love it! Hope that you are going to produce also all remaining parts of "The Room" for VR and Quest2!!!! Thank you in advance ;-)
More games like this! I have always enjoyed the Room games for iPad. Going VR was astonishing and I couldn’t get enough of this game. My jaw dropped multiple times. So immersive but never got motion sick which can be an issue for me. Love this game, thank you to the team behind it. I will immediately buy anything you produce!
Like the other Room games...only BETTER! I have played all the other The Room games on my mobile, and this doesn't even compare. So incredibly immersive, I literally lost track of time while playing. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an escape room cross steam punk style game. So incredibly enjoyable, hope there's a new one in the works!
Stunning! What a great game this is. I you love adventure, puzzles, challenges, escapes and great visuals, this game is for you. I'm quite new to VR and this is one of those games that's totally immersive. I played it for hours in a row, only hindered by the fact I ran out of battery. Puzzles are challenging, sometimes hard ans sometimes easier once you start to recognize them. After finishing this game, I want more and can't wait for a new release!
