The Dark Room


You found yourself in a pitch-black room. Dizzy and disoriented, with no memory of prior events, you stumble in the the dark until you discover a flash light… Can you figure out what is happening and, most importantly, how to get out?! …or will you become the next victim?

Search for clues, solve puzzles, discover hidden items… do whatever it takes to escape!

Highlights/Your Opinion/Review:

Darkness... thats the name of the game. Solving puzzles as you slowly begin to understand the story of the game and the madness of why you are there in the first place. This is my 2nd experience with the "pitch black" concept and I think Room 5280 does a solid job. The room itself has some satisfying puzzles to solve (particularly one dealing with a light), and utilizes its theme well. However there really isn't a big OOH moment in the game, so there is definitely a bit left to be desired from this experience. The pitch black experience can really test you're ability to work as a team and I would recommend you find a team to try one out.
