Crimson Room: Reverse Escapes From Japan

By Ishaan . October 25, 2009 . 2:10pm


Last year, we reported Crimson Room was being ported to the PSP with extra puzzles after receiving a budget flash game to DS port. Recently, an ESRB listing confirmed that the game is being localized by Agetec:


In this puzzle-adventure game, players wake up in a mysterious room and must find a way to escape by interacting with objects (i.e., clicking on them) and searching for clues. Among the many ordinary objects (e.g., keys, CD players, a refrigerator) in the room, there is a diary written by a despondent, love-struck person. The later entries describe the character’s use of sleeping pills after getting "dumped" by a girlfriend/love-interest (e.g., "I’m nothing without her," "Have I taken too many sleeping pills?," and "If I die, would someone find me, and pray for me? I don’t care about anything anymore."). When players find a skeleton clutching a medicine bottle under a blanket, there is a strong implication that the remains belong to the author of the diary.


The ESRB listing has it rated "T" for Teen for references to drugs and violence. Crimson Room: Reverse features a total of 8 rooms to escape from.


Thanks for the tip Chris. D!


< Spencer’s note: Crimson Room Reverse doesn’t look like it has much to translate. Perhaps, its another digital PSP import? We’re seeing a lot of those recently. >

  • You guys may have missed the product listing in my tip:

    This confirms it as a download.

      Huh. Wonder if it will be part of the “minis” line?

      • The price on that game page is $8 so that seems likely, though I am not sure.

        • JeremyR

          Yeah. Good spot, but it’s pretty sad that the best source for information on upcoming PSP games is the ESRB

  • Yeah, Spencer’s right. I remember playing Crimson Room and Viridian Room online and there isn’t much text at all.

    I can’t really imagine paying for those games though.

    • The title reminds me of a morbid Flash animation a friend of mine showed me in 2005. Why the title triggered that memory I’ll never know. I’m curious now and hopefully the game won’t be too expensive.
