Have You Played… The Room?

I’ve never understood why The Room is called The Room and not The Box. Yes, the box is in a room, but your eyes are so drawn to this ornate toy that you don’t ponder what is happening around you. And it really is a good game about boxes: the mystery of what’s inside them, the thrill of prising one open and… er, that’s about…

Good things come to those who wait, and according to just about every site that reviews mobile games, The Room Three - now releasing November 13th on PC - is worth a bit of patience.
