The door in front of you is green and the brass number 62 hangs just below the peephole. Police tape stretches across the door frame in a zigzag pattern. The incandescent light to your left flickers. Something terrible happened here last night. For reasons you don't quite understand, you have to find out what it was.
The Roomsis a horror novella by Stu Horvath in which you choose your course through the story and the decisions you make influence the outcome. Featuring nine possible endings and over seventy illustrations by Yves Tourigny.
"...a fascinating little puzzle book...If you're a game player and patient, you'll love it."
- Ellen Datlow,The Best Horror of the Year, Volume Ten
"Dizzying, dark, twisted, and fun,The Roomsis the awesome choose-your-own-adventure type story you always wanted because you're kind of messed up, aren't you. That's okay. I don't judge you."
- Paul Tremblay, author ofA Head Full of GhostsandThe Cabin at the End of the World.
"Part choosable-path adventure, part point-and-click computer game, all gnostic dread, The Rooms is as much an experience as it is a story. Watch your back in the twisting, turning, never-quite-the-same-twice rooms of the title, however, as this one will sneak up on you and put its cold hand on your shoulder in the dark. And if you're very, very lucky - and choose your path carefully enough - it just might sneak up on you more than once."
- Orrin Grey, author ofPainted Monsters & Other Strange Beasts
