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.

This is the 3rd and final game I play in my 3 random games video, and I gotta say... it wasn't that bad! I think I kinda gained the feeling of what the intended feeling of this game was meant to deliver. It did feel pretty claustrophobic and trapped at the end and then got a little weird.

Here's da video:

This game has with it a deep and an emotional meaning, I really liked it. It's not hard to know what is this game about, and that makes it awesome. The soundtrack is incredible!  It's worth it. Congrats, much talent!

Thank you very much! I'm sorry it took me so long to reply.

5/5, would drink my coffee until I get way too old again.

Great game!  This is really pushing the limits of story-telling with basically one map.  Glad to meet another RPG-maker on here!  Keep it up :)

Thank you so much, tried my best to make this interesting with only one map. Usually the story in my games is the most important part.

Played your "what is a game", really simple yet really motivating. Played your "d-pic" and it was hilarious. Right now i'm downloading Flag Simulator, I'll let you know after I played it. 

Keep it up, I'm planning on release a new game before the end of this month. Right now I'm stucked on the last song of the game.

Hey thanks a lot!  I really appreciate that.  What's your new game about?  Is it short like The White Room?

Pretty much, about 15 minutes, a short story but I think it will turn out as I was planning so I'm pretty satisfied with it.

It's about an old man who is trying to remember all the things that happened in his life but he can't remember, so there are some clues in his house and he must find them.

Neat stuff!

Thank you so much for following me, man! I followed you too!

Gave it a go...

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


Thanks for playing my game. You actually understood everything about the meaning of the game. This is something I really care about, that people understand what is the point behind the story of the game and not just playing it. I really appreciated your video and what you said in the end. Thanks man.

Really ? i didn't think you'd say so, thanks man, i mean i think at least the majority of who played this should've understood it like me, and believe me, i'm not always the "completely understood" type of person, i was just being myself. Anyway thanks for this nice reply. Bye!

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!

Thanks for playing. I really appreciate that you get the point about making it in only one room, it was one of the most important things of the game.

Thanks again for your video!

No problem, man. And about the game being in one room, i think it's kinda of obvious. Anyway thanks for the nice reply. 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.
