BLACKROOM launches with unique multiplayer maps and robust modding support for the community to make diabolical creations of their own design – Coming Winter 2018 to PC!

The page promises even more from the game, including a ten-hour single player campaign and intense, dedicated multiplayer. Check out the game’s full trailer and introduction to the team below:
