The Room Syndrome is a stylish mind-bending narrative-driven puzzle adventure where you attempt to unravel a web of time-paradoxes and escape from a room that you could be trapped in for eternity.
In The Room Syndrome you are the new inhabitant of a small room that you may well be trapped in forever. Other than being dropped off by a mysterious train, you don’t know how and why you ended up there or what/where the room even is. There is another person, called David, in the room though who has been trapped in the room for a LONG time. David may hold some answers that can point you in the right direction, but he’s melancholic and suffering from his extended period of isolation. He’s given up trying to escape and has given up on life – you’re pretty much on your own as you search for some means of escape.
It takes around an hour to play through The Room Syndrome the first time, though here are 7 unique endings to discover depending on your actions throughout. It could do with adding a few pointers as to how to tune the radio (which plays a very important role in the game), but on the whole it’s a very well crafted little adventure which does a great job of telling its time-bending narrative as you explore the past and present of the room you’re trapped in. It’s got a very unique visual style and there are some great twists throughout. Highly recommended.
