Black Room

by Cassie McQuater (United States of America)

Genre: Mixed: Zine, Platformer, Point-and-Click, HTML5

Black Room is a narrative game about an insomniac falling asleep while online. The game reclaims the sprawling, pixelated landscapes of vintage games and co-opts their female characters as leading protagonists, performing an unexpected coup on a gaming world traditionally designed for men.
