The Room Passes 2 Million Sales Milestone
Will this autumn's sequel reach the same dizzy heights?
Fireproof Studios' smash-hit mobile mystery game The Room has accrued more than 2 million sales since its release in September 2012.
The news was revealed by Fireproof's commercial director Barry Meade at this year's Game Horizon conference, organized by Modojo's parent company Gamer Network. At the beginning of the year, the game had just reached the 1 million milestone.
"We did not want to do a better version of someone else's game, or an update of a genre," said Meades during his presentation.
"We thought we're not doing our jobs properly if we don't add to what's out there. As a game creator, that's your responsibility. If you're not doing that, if you're chasing what other people are doing, you don't deserve success because you're not showing respect to the audience."
