iOS, Android •
There are a lot of great puzzle games for mobile, but even amongst the best we can separate them into The Room titles with everything else a step behind. Fireproof Games blazed onto the mobile scene back in 2012 with The Room and showed everyone how to utilize a touchscreen. Not only were there beautiful graphics and a creepy tone, but puzzles were solved by flipping switches and turning knobs, all done by manipulating items with your fingers. It was incredibly tactile, and made The Room the best puzzle game on the platform.
It was followed by the shrewdly titled Room 2 and Room 3, both of which raised the bar by expanding the size of the titular room(s) and bumping up the number of puzzles. Earlier today they announced that The Room series isn’t finished, and the next version The Room: Old Sins will be on our devices by the end of 2017.
Unfortunately, the release window is pretty much all we’re sure of at this point. Well, that and the fact that it’s coming to both iOS and Android.
We’re finally ready to announce (drum roll), “The Room: Old Sins”, our upcoming 3D puzzle adventure coming to mobile late 2017. pic.twitter.com/CzIUMqlMNO

Oh, and there’s this, too:
The sudden disappearance of an ambitious engineer and his high-society wife provokes the hunt for a precious artefact. The trail leads to the attic of their deserted home, and the discovery of an old, peculiar dollhouse…Experience The Room: Old Sins and explore unsettling locations, follow obscure clues and manipulate bizarre artefacts on a journey into the world behind the veil.
The important part is that we get to follow clues and manipulate bizarre artifacts, which means it should be more of the same, and that’s exactly what I’m hoping for. We’ll be in contact with Fireproof and will pass along any new info as we track it down.
