Ratalaika Games and Fractal Projects have announced that they will be releasing the inventory management puzzle game Save Room on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox X/S come November 11, 2022.
The upcoming Save Room indie game will be available for $4.99 EU 4.99. The PC version has recieved very positive reviews. So, here’s to hoping the upcoming gaming console debut follows suit. Save Room has been inspired by the inventory system from the iconic Resident Evil 4 game.
While I’m not the biggest Resident Evil 4 fan out there, I did find the inventory system to be quite interesting. I remember occasionally helping my younger brother (who is a fan of RE 4) with managing Leon’s inventory when I used to watch his gameplay sessions.
Judging from the promotional material, Save Room took inspiration from the RE 4 inventory system and added another layer to it. The primary goal is to make all of the items fit in the inventory. The items can be rotated, move, and combined. However, along with that, you will also need to ensure your weapons are loaded and your character’s health isn’t running too low. There are like, puzzles within puzzles. I’m here for the survival element being added to item management. Also, to the person who thought of using the RE 4 inventory system to create an entire puzzle game… kudos!
Here’s the nostalgic trailer!
There are 40 levels for you to go through. The difficulty curve is said to be progressive. The first 10 levels are about fitting items and reloading weapons. From level 11 to level 25, healing items enter the board. After that, there’s the mechanism of combining gunpowder to create ammunition. The final levels are said to be a surprise!
The overall gameplay, while presenting certain challenges, is said to be accommodating for all players. Don’t fret if you mess up. You can always restart and try organizing items in a different way. The best thing about Save Room, in my opinion, is that there’s no timer. So, there’s no rush. Similar to your character finding an in-game ‘Save Room’, you are also allowed to take your time.
I do plan on checking out Save Room. What about you?
Let us know.
