"Blackbar is a brilliant game." —Ron Gilbert "A political statement—a super fun one. I ■■■■■■■ love this ■■■■■■■ game." —Loren Brichter

"It's flawless." —TouchArcade


Written and designed by Neven Mrgan, Blackbar is a text game: a sci-fi story of a dystopian future told through the medium of word puzzles. Reminiscent of text adventures and interactive fiction, it has a unique mechanic centered around the concept of censorship. Censorship is frustrating, but the human spirit can beat that frustration by turning it into a game.

You'll pick up and understand Blackbar instantly; however, its challenges will keep you searching, trying, and thinking for days.


"Awesome and totally unexpected." —Shaun Inman

"Taut and intelligent. A potent reminder of the power of the written word." —Eurogamer

"Well-written and entertaining, with just a touch of a deeper message to hit a few concepts home. Just plain awesome." —JayIsGames
