Customer Reviews

Like nothing I've played before

A Dark Room is a difficult game to describe and, understandably, the unique way it plays can be off putting to some at first but it is well worth taking the time to get into. It asks so many more questions than it answers and the whole story seems to be open to your interpretation, told in a way only this style of gameplay can really tell it.

Perfection is simple!

I first played this online before I knew it was on the App Store, and when I saw it, Iwas over the moon and I believe that 79p was more than a bargain!
The story is fantastic and has some great twists and turns which will keep you entertained for days, plus it can be replayed countless times. I couldn't praise this game too much!

Text based Gaming brings imagination to forefront of Gaming

This is a text based game that entails elements of storytelling, resource management and exploration. The narrative of the game is well written but some may find the ending to be too inconclusive.

As this game derives its characteristic by your imagination, you should play this game 'without' any pre-conceived notion of what text based gaming should be.
