The Room series has been one of the finest examples of touchscreen gaming for a good while now, urging you to poke, prod, pull and twist at its levels to delve deeper into its narrative of secret elements and Victorian conspiracies.
And right now the latest game in the series, The Room: Old Sins, is on sale on the App Store for 40% off. If you haven’t played it yet, now’s the perfect time to pick it up and have a play.
This one sees you tweaking and turning a series of mechanisms on a doll’s house, while uncovering a tale of obsession and loss that drags you, quite literally, into the massive and intricate toy. Here’s a trailer.
Even if you haven’t played a Room game before, you’re not going to be lost here. The controls are designed so anyone who can use a smartphone will know what to do, and the story stands alone from the other games in the series.
