Room Fake, presented by Place of Light, is just one of those games that makes me smile: a good-looking, nicely thought out room escape game with difficult but not confounding puzzles, a save feature(!) and not too much text to exacerbate the language barrier. It is also somewhat reminiscent of Japanese developer Neutral's offerings with its clean, pre-rendered 3D model surroundings.
In Room Fake, shockingly enough, you find yourself trapped in a room with an eclectic collection of objects, both whimsical and useful: among other things, a painting depicting nursery rhymes, a toy dog statue, a number puzzle and the usual collection of screwdrivers and keys all aid you in finding a way out. The puzzles are mainly intuitive and of moderate difficulty, a nice way to spend a lunch break or unwind from work. And, to what I am sure will be the delight of some and the disappointment of others, the [tab] key cheat has not been disabled. You probably won't need to make much use of it, though; except for a few instances, pixel-hunting is no where to be found.
Room Fake is admittedly not quite as ingenious, nor quite as pretty, as the absolute best and most innovative escape games out there. It is still, however, quite good and more than worth a play through.
