News Bits


Fireproof Games, the studio behind popular puzzle title The Room (2014), today announced its first VR entry into the franchise—The Room: A Dark Matter—is slated to arrive next month on PC VR headsets, Oculus Quest, and PSVR.

Fireproof says in a tweet that the game will be landing simultaneously on their respective stores on March 26th. The studio also pushed out a new trailer, which we linked below.

In case you haven’t been following along, The Room: A Dark Matter is an upcoming VR puzzle game that promises to deliver on the franchise’s knack for complex, escape room-style puzzles. The original The Room for PC has managed to nab itself a solid [10/10] user rating on Steam, so it’s clear Fireproof has big shoes to fill here.

We had a chance to preview the game on Oculus Quest earlier this week, and it proved to be not only to serve up engaging and cleverly-built puzzles, but an engrossing visual experience to compliment its dark, Lovecraftian story. Although we haven’t played on PSVR or PC VR headsets yet, the Quest version left us sufficiently wowed enough to say that it’s set a new bar for VR puzzle games.

Make sure to check out our spoiler-free preview, linked above, to learn a little more about why we’re so excited for others to play The Room: A Dark Matter.

  • Late march. I don’t get it. Are they living under a stone? Late march is Alyx’s releaseparty and everyone with a VR headset will be playing HLA!

    They could launch in April and wouldn’t get burried. But what do I know…..

      Same thoughts

      Not the same target, and Alyx is not gonna get 100 percent of VR neither.

      • Well, I’m the same target …

        • Gonzax

          yep, same here

    Strange release date, same week as HL: Alyx and not just due to the type of game, though many like myself will play both, but more to the fact that the game might totally go under the radar due to everyone else talking about Alyx. Reddit and every forum will be filled up with Alyx threads and some people won’t even notice this came out.

    I wonder why they didn’t push the release date forward one week, I take it the game is complete and it would be possible.

    Anyway, it’s also out for PSVR and Quest so those won’t be affected, I guess.
