Do I have any fellow fans of The Room series of games on DW/LJ? The bloke and I played One through Three avidly. They are such beautifully crafted and creepy puzzle games, and the latest is no exception. I am loving it, and have forced myself to put it down this evening to do my daily update and also because I only have three rooms left (I think). I was particularly fond of the submarine and pagoda/giant octopus puzzles in this one. Also, having to do spirographs to unlock the gazebo in the garden!

They are expensive for phone games (~£5), but worth every penny, especially if you like a tantalisingly gothic-steampunk aesthetic with your memory games.

PS Humuhumu could not have had a better first day in Year One. She was in Silver Zone (the best), got to read aloud (her favourite) and received two stars (the most) for her work at the end of the day. Tiny high achiever was deeply content when picked up.

You're most welcome! I remember the third one taking a loooong time. I've finished Old Sins in what I reckon is about a third of the time it took me to do The Room Three. But hey, breastfeeding sessions are the perfect time for this sort of thing. :D

(I completed Plague Inc with a variety of permutations when breastfeeding Keiki, haha.)

ooh! now I must find this. I loved Myst, it sounds similar.

Yes! The tone of the setting is darker, I think, but similarly intricate and painstakingly constructed.

I've played them all! In fact, it's been long enough now that I forgot what all the puzzles were, so it's time to go back and play them again.

I don't play games at all but looking at the screenshot makes me wish I did. ;-) I love the Steampunk look - a lot.

And yay for Humuhumu - just hope she isn't disappointed when not all days are like this.

It's very easy to get distracted by just how pretty everything is in the game. And frustrating when you want to zoom in on some beautifully detailed steampunk construction and you can't because it's not one of the bits of the setting you can interact with. :)
