A downloadable game for Windows

Maybe it is really too late.

John is in an empty room. He doesn't know how he get there, why he's there and if he will escape.
What brought John in the white room, or who?

Maybe there's no way out and he's condemned.

The White Room is a short game made with RPG Maker XP for Windows. The game is about John, who found himself in this bright room with no escape and no clue on how he get in there.

The soundtrack is fully composed by me and the game will take about 10 minutes to finish.

  • CHANGELOG - MAR 21 2017

I've uploaded a new version of the game, the one named "TheWhiteRoom_FULL" due to a serious problem for anyone who doesn't have RPGMaker XP installed.
I didn't know about this, if you don't have rpgmakerXP installed you can't 'play this game.

With this new version, anyone should be able to play the game without any problem.

I'm so sorry about this and if anyone notice any problem please let me know.

Gave it a go...

Oh hey Step, it's me, the person who recommended you to play this game!

I gave your game a try and found it very emotional and meaningful and deep, so i really liked it. It was a clever idea to have the game take place in one, single room, that's unique. Hope you end up making more.

Without further ado, my video :

Hope you enjoy! Bye!

When I tried to run the exe it said RGSS-RTP Standard not found.

Sorry if I'm responding just now. I'm very sorry about this. I'm looking for a solution to this problem. Basically, for what I'm reading online, to play this kind of game, made with RPGMaker XP, you have to download and install RPGMXP. Now I've found another way to include the data in the game. I'm uploading a new version of the game that hopefully will work even if you don't have RPGmaker XP installed.

Again, sorry about this, and thank you so much for telling me about this.

No worries. Thank you for figuring it out. I'll try it again this weekend.
