A downloadable game for Windows

Marie's Room is a short story exploration game about an unconventional friendship between two classmates. You play as Kelsey, remembering Marie's room as it was twenty years ago. But something’s off. What happened to Marie?

“There was nothing I could do about the past. It was definite as hell.” - Kelsey

Kelsey has come back to a room packed up in boxes. She has one goal - get Marie’s journal. When she picks it up, the memories come back. Because twenty years ago Kelsey and Marie shared this room. They spent days in it working on projects, nights talking about boys, pizza and sparkly shoes. Dreaming about the future, planning their life. Until that ghastly night. When it was all shattered to pieces.

What happened to Marie and Kelsey twenty years ago? 

Search Marie's room and join Kelsey in her trip down memory lane. Open drawers, pick up objects. Learn what Kelsey remembers, read what Marie thought about it. As you puzzle the pieces together, you uncover the secrets of their friendship. 

"She asked me why I was so angry all the time. And I told her -- because it’s a dirty deal. It’s Russian roulette and utterly unfair. The cards I’d been dealt, any player would have passed. I chose to be angry instead. But Marie, my friend Marie, she got me a new deck. And suggested that I deal again." - Kelsey

Official soundtrack is included in the download.

Great game, Really enjoyed my playthrough.

A short story experience, with good graphics, calm narration and a lovely soundtrack. There is a little bit of bad language and some dark themes but most adults should feel fine playing.

We are excited to discuss Marie's Room on Indie Game Club!

I've just played the game and I loved it! It's short but you manage to create such a beautiful and touching atmosphere all along. The narration was perfect, I enjoyed every aspects of the story. The puzzle part motivates to find every pieces of the past and add to the mystery. Really a good game from start to finish !

really good game love the the story to it!!

A really well made game. Though it's an indie game, it feels like a proper studio made it and really should not be free. The art style, the music and the story were really terrific and made the game whole and that much more. (Video below if anyone wants to watch!)

The story was well thought through and made, it described everything perfectly and really well. The main character really resonates with the player because of the backstory and the way they talk as well as the whole game takes the player into the environment and situation and makes them feel like they are really there. 

The puzzles that go along with the game were well thought through and felt well intertwined with the story and the game itself. It incentivised exploring and though the puzzles are simple, it makes the player feel satisfied for getting the answer through paying attention or finding it in the area. 

The music was really great and really went with the mood and tone of the game and really helped the player connect with the game itself. And the art style really suited the story and the game with a very Life Is Strange-y type style, which I personally really like. 

It's a really good game and well worth playing! Hope anyone reading this is doing well and taking care!

A very well made game. Sadly is very short. A full length sequel would be cool. 

This was a beautiful game that had me guessing about what was going on the whole time. I had fun trying to figure it out. 

Such a good short story!

I liked this game.  Was interesting to  explore the room and progress through the story.

This game was... okay? It was a reasonably good take on environmental storytelling marred by some poor decisions. Having to click-and-hold until a meter fills to interact with an object is beyond obnoxious for players using a mouse, especially when it's the sort of game where you're pixel hunting for and interacting with every single interactable object in the environment. The interaction hotspots were too big for some objects, and there was no obvious way to halt the interaction once you'd started having it again (it turns out that most of the time you can just move away, but that wasn't immediately apparent). It got off on the wrong foot by declaring on the first screen that the game was designed to be experienced in a single session, so no saving is supported. The game *is* short, but you don't know what people's lives, attention, free time, etc. is. I really feel like any game that says "The game was designed for X, so Y that you as a player expect will not work / be available," immediately scars the developer / player relationship and shows that the developer cares more about their artistic vision than your needs and experience. 

Overall, I would have forgotten all of that if the game had knocked it out of the park, but instead it was sort of a middling, predictable story that felt a little trite. 

This is among my favourite types of games, and for a game that I paid essentially nothing for (I got it in the bundle) and spent very little time on, it was satisfying enough.

I loved EVERYTHING about this. Very atmospheric and good voice acting!! 

One of my favorite styles of games. A great experience that shows how our environment can tell our story. Loved uncovering what happened and loved the atmosphere of this game.

Amazing quality, amazing story, amazing graphics, amazing audio. This game is awesome.

Yey, um game maravilhoso! Uma narrativa curta porém prazerosa de se jogar.

Meus parabéns aos desenvolvedores pelo jogo memorável.

emotionally refreshing

This is honestly the most overwhelmingly amazing experience I've had in ages. Everything is so simple and yet the running narrative, and piecing together the story bit by bit up to that nailbiting conclusion was just so brilliantly done.

Kudos to everyone involved on this project, this is an absolutely stunning game that I can't recommend enough! The intricacies, the slow addition of pieces of the puzzle that add up to the whole story and the general feel of the whole thing adds up to one heck of a ride! Keep up the amazing work everyone! =)

Wow, that's an awesome narrative and touching story. And visually amazing. Loving it.

Great game! I found it here before the Steam version so I didn't get any trophies :( But I had a really good time exploring this room and fleshing out the story! You did great work, thanks so much for the experience.

I hope you like the Lumps Play I made for it, I use pop-up commentary so it's a little different than the usual ones. 

Cheers! 🍻
