“I did nawt hit her, it’s nawt true, it’s bullshit! I did nawt her. I did NAWT. Oh hai, Mark.”
It’s a line that made bad cinema history. A line so simple a fourth grade thespian could deliver it. It is the infamous seven-second line that took three hours and thirty-two takes to get “right.” It is perhaps the most memetic and laughable lines ever performed—and now you can take on the role of Tommy Wiseau and say it yourself in “The Room: The Game,” an unofficial adaptation of The Room as a point-and-click adventure game a la Sam and Max. The game is nearly 6 years old, developed in 2010 by Tom Fulp (one of the guys behind Castle Crashers), but it’s absolutely worth your time if you’re a fan of the film.
If you haven’t seen the cult classic trashathon that is The Room, written by, produced by, directed by, and starring legendarily bad actor Tommy Wiseau, well… you owe it to yourself. At least watch CinemaSins tear it apart.
What can we say about this game? It’s a pretty faithful retelling of the (bizarre) story of The Room, but with some fun, video-gamey flair and a handful of hilarious Easter eggs. Can you find all the spoons in San Francisco? How about all six things that “You Can Never Unsee?” (They’re all things that never appeared in the actual movie but aren’t at all out of character for the weirdos in this story.)
Actually, you really need to find the spoons. We mean it. Seriously, please play the game and find ALL of the spoons. We won’t spoil the ending, but it’s about three million times better than the actual ending of The Room. Let’s just say, we understand why Tommy Wiseau just seems so weird, so… unnatural.
The game takes about half an hour to complete from start to finish, so it’s well worth the time investment. Keep in mind that this game is NSFW—for brief pixelized nudity, nothing graphic—and not just because of the huge banner ads on Newgrounds featuring mostly-naked anime girls. Give it a try, enjoy, and remember how much you laughed at the world’s best-worst movie.
