Popular puzzle game The Room headed to Switch


The highly popular and award-winning puzzle game The Room is headed to the Nintendo Switch. Fireproof Games, the original publishers of The Room, have teamed up with Team 17 in order to rebuild and remaster the game for the Switch. The game was originally released on iOS, Android and PC.


The Room is a physical puzzle game coupled with an element of mystery. You, the player, receive a mysterious invitation that leads to a note from a distant companion that delivers a promise of something worthwhile in an ancient iron chamber. The game mechanics revolve around solving visually based puzzles with unique and interesting solutions in order to make your way into the iron chamber.



The entire game has been rebuilt from the ground up in order to fully utilize the functions of the Switch controls. The game uses both the Joy-Con controllers as well as the touchscreen. Players can solve puzzles through hand-held mode, or with the newly implemented motion controls.


The Room was first released in 2012 and will be available for Nintendo Switch on October 18th for $9.99/£6.99/€8.99.
