So Let Us Melt

The doors close on The Chinese Room - for now

"We're done with walking simulators."

Just under a year after the launch of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, a "walking simulator" about dealing with loss in Shropshire in 1984, it won three BAFTAs. For its developer The Chinese Room, it seemed things couldn't get any better. Fans anxiously awaited the studio's next big project. They're still waiting.

The Chinese Room has a new game out this week

It's called So Let Us Melt, and it's for Google's VR headset.

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Dear Esther, and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs developer The Chinese Room is releasing a new game this Thursday, 21st September, for Google's VR headset Daydream View. It's a sci-fi affair called So Let Us Melt and its premise is a doozy.
