Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Favorite Game to play together

My daughter is 10 and we have been playing The Room games since she was 7. Actually I got it for myself initially and she took it from me and ripped through the first few chapters (it’s not easy!) We played with the sound off as the music can make it scary. There is an occasional skull but mostly I would describe the atmosphere as ‘steampunk’ The puzzles are great and we have played all 3 multiple times. Don’t get bogged down in the notes left around, they usually have one vague direction and some confusing text that tries to be mysterious but isn’t. We turn on the clues and sometimes smack our foreheads for reading them too soon. I was a Myst fan in my day and would describe this story line as ‘Myst light’
