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

This game was very interesting and had a very unsettling feeling to go along with it. I really enjoyed the story line.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Very simplistic of a Point 'n click adventure, but not a bad one.

The messages contained in the game are somewhat commonplace, though, so the attempt to be deep didn't work that well.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Impeccable! 4 stars! I love this game because when a person is in the world where everything is black and white. I rated 4 stars because, Well number one the barcodes are sort of... Mean. Or "futuristic" But actually I beat the game in: 399.53 seconds.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Incredible! such a great game, the creative content, hand drawn and eerie feel makes for one great point and click adventure game, 5 stars!
