Design Critique: The Room (Android app)

The Room is the first of a series of mystery-puzzle video games originally developed by Fireproof Games. It follows a format similar to the genre of Escape Room games available on the mobile and consists of highly elaborate boxes with multiple puzzles that must be sequentially solved to unlock the box. This critique takes a closer look at how The Room (on Android) makes use of the Design of Everyday Things’ Design Principles and uses them to lead the player through the game.
