I don’t know about you guys and girls, but I truly like point-and-click adventure games. That’s also why I got really thrilled when René Bühling informed me about his fantasy adventure game “A room beyond“, because the game looks like a mix of “Little Big Adventure” and old-school “Alone in the Dark“. Furthermore, Bühling also told me that episode 5 (“The Wolf and the Lamb”) for “A room beyond” will be released on the 13th of June via Steam:
“Hello Robin, A ROOM BEYOND, the fantasy point and click adventure based on essential subjects of human existence, is leaving Early Access on June 13 with the release of its final fifth Episode. The game is available for Windows and Mac OS via Steam. The game truly is an indie gem, developed and published by René Bühling, PhD.
This novel video game draws the drama around the “Fog Wanderer”, a murderous apparition scaring a small village in a Lovecraftian world. Help the villagers to solve the murder mystery and discover your own fate which seems to be oddly woven into the entire drama.
A philosophical story is built upon inspiration coming from the book The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, published by palliative nurse Bronnie Ware in 2012. Video games such as Alone in the Dark 1, The Last Door and the famous Lucas Arts games significantly influenced the general tone and coloring of the game, as well as the art of H.P. Lovecraft and E.A. Poe. The game’s innovative mix of pixelart and low-poly rendering has attracted a lot of interest among players and artists already.
Episode 5: “The Wolf and the Lamb”, brings the five-part saga into completion. The new patch introduces a haunted mansion full of challenging puzzles and surprising secrets like transcendental night-vision. Depending on players’ decisions across all five episodes, there are as many as 10 different endings! The game is localized in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian.” – René Bühling
