The Room doesn’t sound like much on paper. In a way, it’s a riff on the classic one-room adventure game motif, but where those games largely centered on getting out of the room, this one puts the focus on getting into a mysterious box in the room’s center. Truly, “The Box” might have been a more appropriate title, as it’s the only thing you’ll interact with in the entire game.
Welcome to The Room, a physical puzzler, wrapped in a mystery game, inside a beautifully tactile 3D world. *****************
