Normally news of a second The Room
would tear us apart, Lisa, but this is Fireproof Games' follow-up to last year's mysterious, acclaimed puzzler, and it's out right now. You, Lisa, and everyone else can enter The Room 2
on iPad, provided you have the key - the key being $5 spare in your App Store
wallet. iPhone and Android users will have to sit and wait outside The Room 2
, as it won't unlock on their devices until sometime next year.
The game's App Store description doesn't give too much away in terms of plot, asking players to "follow a trail of cryptic letters from an enigmatic scientist known only as 'AS' into a compelling world of mystery and exploration." It doesn't require a detective to work out that fans of the first game can expect more elaborate mysteries to decipher and plenty more fiddly locks to open, all rendered in a tactile 3D engine.
Fireproof will be hoping to repeat the success of the first game, which picked up Apple's iPad Game of the Year award
and sold over 2 million units.
To celebrate the second game's release, Fireproof is making The Room
free on the App Store
for a limited time.
