A Dark Room for iOS is now available for free. Regularly listed between $1 and $2, this is the first time we have seen the game go free since this time last year, outside of a quick 3 day sale. It is “one of Apple’s Top 10 Paid Apps of 2014” and has received a 4.5 star rating from over 27,000 reviewers.
Head below for more details:
A Dark Room is basically a unique RPG that has become very popular for its eerie setting and text-based gameplay: “Awake. Head throbbing. Vision blurry. Come light the fire and escape into a world you’ll never forget.”
A Dark Room starts with a few lines of text on a white screen, and what you can do is pressing the “stoke fire” button. When a ragged stranger has come, you keep stoking the fire, the grey progress bar slowly filling itself out again each time to signal when you’ll be able to press the “stoke fire” button again. Then you will find more strangers come, and more resource should be built & managed, and you will begin your own story.
