Samsara Room

Samsara Room finds you in a strange place with no exits. A quick look in the mirror finds your reflection a shadow-like ghost. Objects aren’t quite what they appear to be, merely giving you further conundrums to explore rather than a means to escape.

Soon, you discover ways to progress - a path to another room, or perhaps the same one from a different view. Either way, everything goes a bit weird, and you need to further rack your brains to figure out what to do next.

That might all sound vague, but much of the joy in Samsara Room is in the exploration and discovery, so we won’t spoil that. Just take it from us that this is very much a bite-sized room escape game, but one that during its short length has the capacity to frequently surprise, delight, and baffle - in roughly equal measure.
