11

Fireproof Games, the studio behind VR game Omega Agent (2016) and critically-acclaimed The Room series of puzzle games, recently unveiled its next VR game called The Room VR: A Dark Matter.

The game, which will only be playable in VR, is slated to launch sometime in early 2020 on PSVR, Oculus Quest, and SteamVR-compatible headsets including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index, and Windows VR headsets.

Here’s Fireproof’s description:

Designed from the ground up for the unique capabilities of VR, players can inhabit the spine-tingling world of The Room and interact with its strange contraptions in this compelling new chapter.

The game begins deep within The British Museum in London, where the disappearance of an esteemed Egyptologist prompts a Police investigation into the unknown. Explore cryptic locations, examine fantastic gadgets and discover an otherworldly element which blurs the line between reality and illusion.

Besides the reveal trailer and a few screenshots seen above, there isn’t much more to go on for now.

Fireproof Games is known for supporting mobile devices on all of its The Rooms titles, although this will be the first to elusively support VR. The studio maintains that The Room VR won’t offer support for Gear VR, Google Cardboard, or Nintendo Labo, as they are “not powerful enough to run the game.” Oh, hi Mark.

    Aha! I purchased The Room and Room 2 way back when on my iPad. Like this series. Didn’t know the dev was in the VR arena. Looks like a nice continuation and expansion of the game.

    Awesome! Looking forward to play it on my Quest!

    The series has the best escape/puzzle box-style games on mobile, so I’m fairly confident they’ll make a good game here. I’ll be keeping an eye on it.

    What a great story Mark!

    My all time favorite mobile games are The Room.
    Thankfully, not the game based on the movie. ;)
    I look forward to this.

    p.s. small typo “this will be the first to elusively support VR.”
