A Dark Room

Strategy RPG and Resource Manager

Reviewed By: Aaron Spelker

A Dark Room is a Real-Time Strategy game with RPG components.  You start in a hut with nothing but a fire to keep you warm.  After meeting a mysterious stranger you gain the ability to build up your village and resources.  With the growth of your village new citizens with various skills join the community.  When you are well established, you can leave the village and explore the surrounding terrain.  Through exploration, you gain more resources and skilled workers.  In the wasteland, there are houses, caves, cities, wild animals, military foes, unique resources, and a few secrets. The Dark Room exploration map is an exceptional accessibility feature.  A text log provides relative coordinates to points of interest, found locations and unexplored terrain.  This map design allows a player to easily grasp the surroundings by swiping through the log using Voiceover. Eventually through your exploration, you find the meaning behind this adventure.
