Room 206

by Byron Alexander Campbell profile

Mystery, Horror

About the Story

The wedding is over, but the bride is nowhere to be found. You receive a phone call from a mysterious stranger. Things are not always as simple as they seem, and as you pursue the woman of your dreams you will find that the world is a good deal darker than you had imagined it.

A brutal mystery which follows a semi-keyword based system of navigation. Type the bolded words in the room description in lieu of cardinal directions.

Off-Site Reviews

The Adventures in Alan v3 Blog

As to its length, the game is rather long - easily longer than the average IF Comp game and maybe the longest ALAN3 game produced...it's an unpredictable ride with lots of twists and turns. The game turns out to have a rather sinister and disturbing plot and could be classified as a horror story.

...the ending is ambiguous and open to interpretations; this is probably the author's intention. The imagery towards the end is quite disturbing and uneasy. The atmosphere in the game grows all the time towards more frightening. If you're into that type of games, then this is a perfect one for you. All in all, this is a game well worth playing, so be sure to give it a try!

Verdict: 3,5 / 5 (= Some bugs and guess-the-verb moments but overall solid and competent prose with an interesting storyline open to interpretations.)
