The Chinese Room is an award-winning game development studio based in Brighton, best known for creating experimental first-person games such as Dear Esther, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and, most recently, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.

We are currently working on our next game, So Let Us Melt and Total Dark (working title).




We proudly support SpecialEffect, a charity for gamers with physical disabilities. By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, they find ways for people to play to the very best of their abilities. By levelling the playing field, they bring families and friends together and have a profoundly positive impact on therapy, confidence and rehabilitation.
