In The Other Room is an unsettling little Sci-Fi adventure where you find that your mirror can transport you into an alternate reality.
Created for the Global Game Jam 2022, In The Other Room starts with you holed up in a rather barren looking room that contains a few basic supplies and a note from your mother that says she’s gone in search of food. It’s clear that the world you live in is pretty doomed, possibly thanks to the sun cooking it like a baked potato.
It’s a pretty grim place, but then you notice that there’s another room that you can reach by walking through a large wall-mirror. Not another room, but the same room in another dimension – a much nicer place that’s much more like current day Earth. Too bad you can’t stay there…
Taking around 10 minutes to play through, In The Other Room delivers a delightfully dark Sci-Fi narrative that feels like something out of The Twilight Zone. The environmental storytelling is fantastic, with lots of great little touches that help build the story and the world(s). Highly recommended.
