Today we’re extremely excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Fireproof Games to bring their award-winning 3D puzzler, The Room, to Nintendo Switch eShop on October 18th!
The Room is a physical puzzler wrapped inside a mystery game where you are transported into a unique space that blends stunning visuals with intriguing problems to solve. A mysterious invitation leads to the attic of an abandoned house. In the room is a cast-iron safe laced with strange carvings and on top, a note from your distant companion. It promises something ancient and astonishing concealed in the iron chamber – you need only find a way in.
The Room has been rebuilt from the ground up specifically for Nintendo Switch to utilise both the touch screen and the Joy-Con controllers. Use the intuitive touch screen controls to solve puzzles in handheld mode or utilise the Joy-Con controllers in newly implemented motion control in TV mode.
First released in September 2012, The Room swiftly climbed the charts and reached #1 in over 60 countries. It has won multiple awards including ‘iPad Game of the Year 2012’ from Apple, the BAFTA for British Game and the GDC Award for Best Handheld/Mobile Game. Players can now experience The Room for the first time on console, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
