A Dark Room

A Dark Room

A Dark Room (adarkroom.doublespeakgames.com) is a minimalist post-apocalyptic online text-based game!

Here is a decription:

A Dark Room is strictly text-based, but requires you to wait for bars to tick down before performing activities over and over again. It all starts off in a dark room, where you find a fire that you can light. From there, you just keep stoking the fire every time that the bar cools down. Nothing much seems to happen until a stranger bursts into the room with you, shivering and murmuring in the corner. Not long after this, you’ll start to run out of wood with which to stoke the fire with, prompting you to go into the forest and gather some more… How much wood you have determines what you can build and what you can do as the story progresses.

Its author describes A Dark Room as “an experiment in minimalism and paced narrative”. I say it’s fun and addictive, and give it a strong recommendation:

A Dark Room: ☢☢☢☢☢ (5/5)

I’ll add more as I get further along in the game…

    (I don’t want to give any more spoilers, so I won’t say any more…)

  2. Glad you like the game. May the fire burn brightly for you.
