The Room VR has nothing to do with Tommy Wiseau or the masterpiece that was his film, but it is a good puzzle game that you can play in virtual reality.
From Fireproof Games comes another VR title that has nothing to do with Half-Life. It’s called The Room VR: A Dark Matter, and it puts you in the well-polished shoes of a London Police detective as they try to figure out some mysterious disappearances. And as most disappearances do in video games, the investigation eventually leads to some occult shenanigans that you’ll have to deal with. Stiff upper lip and all that.
The Room is actually already a series of mobile puzzle games, but where the mobile titles typically have you dealing with a single room or a single object, A Dark Matter takes you on a journey to many locales. Each puzzle is set in a room where you’ll have a number of different “hot spots” that you can swap to in order to investigate clues and manipulate in-game objects. You’ll go from creepy clue boards covered in strings to Egyptian sarcophagi to weird satanic imagery on your journey to figure out just what the hell is going on.
Unlike most puzzle VR games, The Room VR: A Dark Matter isn’t just a glorified escape room. There’s a level of detail here that is absolutely worthy of Valve’s latest masterpiece–provided you prefer puzzle games to action games, of course.
The Room VR: A Dark Matter is out now on Oculus, Steam, and PlayStation VR.
