NetEase Games is preparing to publish two titles from Fireproof Games’ critically acclaimed 3D puzzle series, The Room, in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan and South Korea. Both games, The Room: Old Sins, the latest game in the franchise, and The Room Three, will be launched in multiple-language versions. The games will first be released in March in Japan, South Korea, HK and Macau. Official sites for these versions are now open for pre-registration.  

Worldwide Hit Puzzle Franchise

While maintaining the series’ core gameplay, The Room: Old Sins elevates the first-person 3D puzzle experience to a new level by providing more realistic touch feedback and adding new dynamic sound effects. The story is built around a master engineer’s search for his missing artist wife. The game contains hidden clues and puzzles connected to the previous games in the series, presenting the player with a rich setting that is gradually revealed, showing off the game’s unique charm and tactile world. 

Critically Acclaimed Series

Known for its ingenious puzzle and level design, as well as its first-person perspective and outstanding, suspenseful musical score, each game in the series transports the player to a world of mystery. Not only have the games been big hits with players, but they’ve also been critically lauded, with games in the series winning Apple App Store’s Game of the Year in 2012, 2013 and 2015. The Room won BAFTA’s Best British Game in 2012 and Best Handheld/Mobile Game 2012 at the Game Developers Choice Awards.

This collaborative effort between NetEase Games and Fireproof Games will soon bring one of the highest-rated mobile games to players in East Asia. The Room: Old Sins innovates on a winning formula with improved graphics and 3D modeling, while retaining the core gameplay that has won The Room so many fans around the world. The Room: Old Sins is, without doubt, the most anticipated puzzle game of 2018.
