In the Other Room Review
Last Updated: 2022-02-20 21:20:39
Low budget indie games tend to be some of the most creative around, assuming they aren't just flipping assets poorly in Unity. Without the budget to create an epic, the creators instead need to focus on one unique feature to make their games stick out. From these restrictions come some truly inventive concepts. One of them is In the Other Room, which is a short experimental game about existential dread.
To play In the Other Room, simply run the executable after unzipping it to a folder.
This game is short but haunting. It starts off with you in a barren room that's boarded up, with only some basic supplies, newspaper articles, and a note from your mother saying she's gone in search of food. The newspaper articles let you know the world is pretty much ending because the sun is getting exponentially hotter and is cooking the world alive. The drawings littered around lets you know you're playing as a child.
When you touch the mirror, you enter a beautiful room that's much like a room from our current Earth. Exploring will show that there's a child living here that's being haunted by her alternate self. Before you can explore too much, you're forced back to the apocalyptic room, where time has passed and things are steadily getting worse. You're desperate to return to the beautiful room, but the girl there has been getting haunted more and more and her mental health is deteriorating. The conclusion is compelling but is sadly the least interesting part of this game.
All in all, if you want to play a game with an incredibly unique premise, then you should give In the Other Room a download.
