The Crimson Room gets a 2016 update with the release of Crimson Room: Decade – Escape the Room


You wake up in a strange room.
The walls are painted red and the only door in the room is locked.

Back in 2004, the Crimson Room quickly became one of the most popular games of the locked-in-a-room genre and boasts over 800 million views of the game across multiple game websites.

The sequel to the game, Crimson Room: Decade starts in a similar way – same red walls, blue door and yellow drawer in the corner. What’s changed? There’s a new protagonist – Inspector Jean-Jacques Gordot along with a new story and different puzzles involved.

The Inspector needs to assess all the objects in the room and find out which object combinations will assist in his escape. In the trailer, there’s flashes of lightning coming from a nearby window which also shows glimpses of the Eiffel Tower. Plus the game’s website states players will be able to explore the game in virtual reality in a future update.

Until June 16th, the game has a 15% discount on Steam which makes it $8.49 USD at the moment. After the deadline, the game goes up to $9.99 USD on Steam and there might be an Apple iOS version coming out (the website indicates coming soon). Plus, there’s a giveaway where you can win Steam credit and a Crimson Room: Decade t-shirt.

The impact of the original Crimson Room game can still be seen today with SCRAP Entertainment, which have their own real-life version called Escape From The Red Room in Tokyo along with Locked Canada who run their escape room, Crimson Room: The Origin.

Here’s the trailer for Crimson Room: Decade
