You can't remember the last time you left your room. When you receive a barcode reader in the mail, you discover that the world around you is not what it seems, and must escape the bars of black and white.

"Bars of Black and White" is a game in the room-escape tradition with hand-drawn line art graphics and novel barcode-scanning action. Is the world insane, or is it you?



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Loved it! A thought-provoking little jaunt into the meaning of societal norms of "sanity" and what's "real". Thank you. :-)
