The Room, breakout iOS puzzler that earned Apple's 2012 iPad Game of the Year, will receive an expansion, sequel, and Android port this summer.
The free expansion will arrive early summer and will continue where the story left off, while the sequel, slated for a fall release, will take place in a different setting. Personally, I'm most excited for the Android port that will arrive in late summer. I can finally play the game on my Nexus 7 tablet, instead of on iPhone.
Since release, the title has sold over 1.75 million copies and obtained a remarkably high 4.9/5 user rating. It's become a surprise hit on the App Store and is one of the few I can get behind, due to its clever puzzles and atmosphere that calls to mind Myst. It also references Tommy Wiseau's The Room more than Silent Hill 4: The Room, which is always a plus.
