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


Barcode idea was really original, and pretty fun.
I didn't really get the game really well, but i still had fun


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great game

Very thought provoking it was a bit challenging to find the scanner (its on the computer screen its the game)
Some music would be nice to add in and the last bar code is right in front of you for those who cannot find it
i made it to the end all bar codes found


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Interesting Concept

The best escape game ever. They usually suck but this one, this one was incredible. I need to go back and get all 30. 5/5

It was a great game. Majestic, even.
I completed it in 1000 seconds, or more accurate:995.244 seconds.
I got all thirty barcodes.
