Fireproof Games continue their award-winning game series, The Room, with The Room VR: A Dark Matter.
The British Institute of Archaeology, London, 1908: the disappearance of an esteemed Egyptologist prompts a Police investigation into the unknown.
Explore cryptic locations, examine fantastic gadgets and enter an otherworldly space which blurs the line between reality and illusion. Designed from the ground up for the unique capabilities of virtual reality, players can inhabit the spine-tingling world of The Room and interact with its strange contraptions in this compelling new chapter.

Directors’ Statement

Over eight years The Room series of games has sold 18m copies across mobile, PC and console and this means with any new release, Fireproof have a lot of fans to please. So we approached making a VR-only Room game with some nervousness and it's not an exaggeration to say the game was years in the planning before we made it. Now that's it's out we're very happy to have received the blessing of those fans, we're sure we made the right decision. Our intention in making The Room VR was to show that, if you make it well, VR can be next to magic and we hope by taking part in Venice to show this magic to a broader audience.
