The Room is a series of captivating 3D puzzle games by the developers at Fireproof Games. So far three games in the series have been released and a fourth installment, The Room Old Sins, is expected to launch sometime later this year.
With eerie and challenging 3D puzzles to solve throughout each of the games, your puzzle-solving ability is really put to the test.
The Room 1, The Room 2, and the 3rd installment in the series The Room 3, have all either won awards or at least been nominated at BAFTA. I know these games have been out for a long time now but I do feel they need some recognition for their captivating game play. The initial game in the series was released on September 12, 2012, followed by The Room 2 which was released December 5, 2013. The 3rd installment in the series was released on November 4, 2015. Now, to my excitement, there are plans For The Room Old Sins to be released later in 2017. The series is such a big hit and Fireproof Games has no signs of slowing down.
The upcoming version looks like it will be just as captivating as the first 3. With the same eerie feeling and curious worlds that just pull you deeper in the game, it will most likely be award winning just like the other 3 were.
Fireproof Games hasn’t said much on their website about what exactly the 4th game will entail, nor have they provided an exact release date. The most you get is a little synopsis like you would with an upcoming book release or movie trailer that keeps their fans waiting eagerly in suspense for the next release. Some lucky fans were able to play a small demo at their booth at EGX Rezzed in London at the end of March 2017. There is a video available containing a short snippet of game play caught on film during the recent EGX Rezzed video game event while Barry Meade from Fireproof Games was interviewed.
One thing for sure is that these games have a strong fan following and I don’t see that slowing down anytime soon. These games are set to captivate a certain audience and more people are discovering these games every day. With the brilliant story lines and enthralling puzzles there’s always something new and challenging to focus on in these games that makes them so hard to put down. I for one cannot wait for the release of the 4th installment. I know as long as fans continue to show their love like they do for these games, we’ll hopefully continue to see even more releases. We’ll keep you updated on any news we hear about The Room Old Sins.
