THE ROOM IS OUT NOW ON STEAM FOR WINDOWS
Only £3.99 / $4.99
Hello there, it’s been some time since our last post and we’ve been very busy! While most of Fireproof are busy creating our next game we’ve had a very small team here working on bringing The Room to Windows, where you can play either using a mouse or the original touch controls if your PC has a touch-screen. Click here to watch the trailer.
This fully-enhanced HD version has been many months in the making and has involved recreating almost every asset in the game from the ground up. Click on the thumbnail to view the screenshots and take a look at our side-by-side comparison video showcasing some of the visual improvements by clicking here.
To those of you who have been asking about any news on the next game in The Room series, all we can say is stay tuned… ;)
"MOBILE IS BURNING" ARTICLE ON POLYGON
How free-to-play binds the hands of devs who want to help
Video game website Polygon asked Fireproof's Commercial Director Barry Meade to write an 'opinion piece' on our experience making games on mobile platforms and why we decided to sell our games at a fixed 'premium' price rather than following a free-to-play or in-app-purchase model.
Barry's piece has caused a few ripples throughout the industry, and is well worth a read if you have an interest in the current state of mobile gaming and its possible future. You can read it by clicking here.

SALES INFOGRAPHIC FOR THE ROOM & THE ROOM TWO
Blimey it's quite scary when you add it all up!
Ahead of tomorrow's BAFTA Games Awards, at which we've been nominated for British Game and Mobile & Handheld, we thought we'd share up this infographic displaying some facts and figures about our experience with developing and selling The Room & The Room Two.
There might be some surprising facts in there, such at The Room was developed by only 4 people over 8 months, or that we got through an impressive amount of beer and biscuits while toiling away on The Room Two! Anyway, if you're wondering exactly how many copies of our games we've sold then look no further. Click the thumbnail on the left to view the infographic in all its glory or download it here!
