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 3 / 5 stars

Well done

Good idea, clear goal... it would have been more fun to have more to do though. I know this is a quick game, but i was just starting to have fun when it was over

It had an interesting storyline and i really enjoyed it. I like the fact that you can beat the game with no scanner. To me the ending represented that to you, you were free and had made it outside, but in reality you were far from it.

It was OK

The Game itself was a great Idea, the hand draw graphics were a nice touch, I just found the scanner to be a bit tempermental
