What a week of virtual reality (VR) videogame releases it has been. First, there was Valve’s Half-Life: Alyx which has pretty much stolen the show, then there was Paper Beast for PlayStation VR and let’s not forget Down the Rabbit Hole. Another exciting launch came from Fireproof Games, bringing it’s puzzle franchise The Room into VR for the first time with The Room VR: A Dark Matter. And as luck would have it, the studio has provided VRFocus with several Steam keys for our readers to win.
Taking what made the franchise great and giving it an immersive VR spin, The Room VR: A Dark Matter has its own unique storyline set in London, circa 1908, where you play a detective called to investigate a mysterious disappearance. A renown Egyptologist has vanished from the British Institute of Archaeology whilst working on his latest find. As with all The Room videogames, this has occurred thanks to strange, dark magic.
Players have to scour the locations for clues, solving evermore elaborate puzzles as the campaign progresses. They’ll be able to employ some fantastical gadgets to aid their investigation, which will throw up a few surprises. Built specifically for VR, Fireproof Games has made the puzzles and the experience as a whole nicely interactive, employing the unique features of VR. Additionally, using a node-based teleportation system ensures the locomotion in The Room VR: A Dark Matter is comfortable for all.
Giving The Room VR: A Dark Matter a solid four stars, VRFocus said in its review: “Varied environments filled with detail, rich lore and polished puzzles prove that The Room VR: A Dark Matter is an essential VR puzzler for all fans of the genre.”
