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

Oh. my. god.

This is truly amazing. Absolutely, completely positively amazing. Little bit creepy though.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Truly good

i like the game from start to finish. to people who think of this author as demented u may leave and play with your building blocks child. Learn that all games are not what u want them to be. there isnt allways a good guy who will win or get out or be victor. learn that there will be bad guys and that the end will have no victor just the feeling of wonder. Learn....

It's Easy

I found all 30 out of 30 barcodes. It's really not that hard once you beat the computer game. You just look in every possible direction for a barcode. Oh by the way, for other noobs, the zebra on the picture counts as a barcode.
PS/ Great game!! :)
