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?

The room is like the Matrix: "It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth." You even begin to ask "What is real?" To me, that makes it stand out from other escape-type games. Very short, but one of my favorites.
