Awake, head throbbing, vision blurry. Come light the fire.

Welcome to a text based journey that is nothing short of a work of art, even more so because it is the most accessible game conceivable. Every aspect of the game has been finely and uniquely judged for the correct effect, from the time events take to happen to the way the game progresses, indeed this description is being kept vague precisely because A dark room is something it's better to experience, right from it's very first screen.

The developer's attention to detail is nothing short of astounding, and the access is no exception. If your ever stuck on access just hit the "help" button in the top left corner of the interface, and use left and right flicks to work your way around the game. Indeed access is so exceptional this would likely be a great game for those getting used to Voice over, as much as for experienced gamers and anyone who loves a fully immersive, finely crafted experience of a game in text.

The game may be bought on the ap store for just 2.99 usd, or 1.29 British pounds, which if anything is far less than the quality this game deserves. Really, this game can't be recommended highly enough, even if it's necessary to be less than forthcoming about many aspects of gameplay.

A walkthru for the game's hardmode had also been written by some fool called Dark, which can be Read here on the forum though again, with both the walkthru and the wiki, beware of spoilers.

Enjoy probing the mysteries of the dark room.
