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 4.5 / 5 stars

pretty wierd but also very cool

nice job dude! the cool thing was that as i played i kinda started getting an adrenaline rush, kept me a lil tense. it would be awesome if it was longer man!

Heaps good!

This could've been so much better if there was music and the actual pictures of the trees and bushes that were meant to be a window made the game look less professional. Great idea though and maybe a better ending.

Simple design, simple enough to get through, but very dark and makes you think past the game. Matrix-style fun!
