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

Pretty cool

Second time playing first time i just gave up for some reason but this time i stuck through i liked it and the ending was cool. It reminded me of the gunslinger by stephen king when the barcode read there are other worlds than these.

Took me 934 seconds. As soon as I realized you can use the computer I flew through it. Even got all thirty barcodes. (The last one is painfully obvious)

This game needs trophies.

Nice Job!

My fave song, ever.
In any case, I love this game. Combines video games and mentally fucking around with people, its a great game.

Love your work

I really loved the first game you did - the majesty of colours - and I throughly enjoyed this one too.
You have this really calm style to your work and it allows the player to explore the environment freely.
I loved the barcode idea because there were messages for me to read but the simple tecnique of just not writing them in english made the game so much more mysterious. The messages themselves were also interesting and thought provoking.
Please do make more games because you have a real talent for them!
