When is the next update?
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
We have a Discord! Feel free to use it to discuss the game, offer suggestions, or squad up.
Due to a lack of updates, Control Room has now been made open source. If you would like to create your own updates or mods, check out the post below:
Updated 9/29/2019 (v1.62)
"Bug fixes and difficulty balancing (again)"
Reverted singleplayer so the squad member count is determined by the selected difficulty. Fixed bug with invincible infected in multiplayer.
Let me know if you experience any issues, or have feedback!
Read about the current state of Control Room here:
A laboratory conducting human experiments goes into lock down. With rescue on the way, you must learn to monitor the outbreak and communicate with security in order to survive.
Single player - Includes 3 maps and 8 unlockable music tracks.
Multiplayer - Includes 2 maps and 4 unlockable music tracks.
This is the Control Room.
...This is the most secure room in the bunker, so as long as you do your job you should be able to keep us all safe, but if it comes down to it, we have a security pistol for you over here. Again, this should only be used as a last resort. Well, I’ll leave the rest to you, techy. Remember, keep your eyes on the cameras. If you need anything, you can use the intercoms to reach me.

love this game can you add more scps like aliens zombies and other stuff
i some how got all the security with me to fight the zombies
This is fun, but I do have a suggestion for a future update, it would pretty much be as so:
You and 4 teams (A, B, C, and D) are on an expedition to capture a new SCP and you control everything from a high-tech SCP van. Just a suggestion but I personally think it would be cool, also maybe more enemies... that's all cheers!
That's very similar to an idea I had for the sequel if it's ever made ;)
i remember playing this thing to death due to the sandboxy nature of the game great job! :)
In my opinion, this is one of the most unique games that I have ever experienced, I played this two years ago and I came back to it again, I hope someday you'll make a sequel as you've been kinda hinting at with other comments, I'll always check back for an update!
I hate you I started game development just so i could make a multiplayer port of the singleplayer mode 1 year later and a ton of procrastination and im still struggling to get it to work >:(
This is the most flattering insult. Don't give up!
can you re open the game and add some more stuff into the game, make more maps and add a medic that has a pistol and can heal the team, and on the control board have a door health bar and you can add another guy with a machine gun and he can repair the doors or rebuild them back if their broken.
Wish the game did not lag so much. Good nevertheless.
(I've already lowered the resolution, but at that point it can still get slower and things are barely visible.)

can multiplayer only be played with friends?
Nope, you can play with anyone! The game's not that active, so it may be rare to see other lobbies open
is the game available on 32bit ?
IM craving more can you make more solo maps plz. I beg of you make more maps. I feel if you do it would get much attention. also plz make more setting so I can customize the game more, I would like to see another unit like a medic unit so we have more then just engineer or assault to pick from. or maybe on the control console have a emergency generator so if your power cuts off we can turn a backup generator on but it uses gas and you have a gas gage on the control board so if you run out of gas the generator shuts back off. and I love the control aspect keep that I like to control everything I love this game. like can you plz if your reading this do some stuff for me plz. ill give you ideas to make the game better also. or also add a door health system so when you see the door on the control board when you press E or H on it it shows its health somewhere on the control board. Thanks
I saw your other reply, so I want to respond! Unfortunately Control Room won't be receiving updates - partially because it's quite old, and also because I have other projects that I'm working on. You can read more about it in the Development Log section above Comments.
But thank you very much for the feedback! I've wanted to create a sequel that includes some of the things you mentioned, such as medic units, and many more types of maps. However it may be years before I'll have time to start on it :(.
I'm very glad you enjoy the game! Thanks again!
is their a way that I can help you I actually have so many decant ideas of stuff you could add to make it more complex and strategic. I think if you make a sequel with more stuff that am suggesting it would be a huge hit. I mean huge.
what is the music called, its FIRE!!!
The music was made by a friend of mine! You can find his sound cloud at the bottom of this page's description :)
hey I really want some good updates to the game like more things to do on the control board that adds to solo mode or luck unlockable maps so if you survive a map on any level you can play next map on solo mode.
Really good game, especially in multiplayer. I think this has the potential to be quite popular if more people discover it.
i like your game. I made a video if youre interested in that stuff
Good god, i played this by myself at night for the first time, amazing and terrifying would recommend.
Just played this with some friends...One of the best game's I played in a while...not a fan of the art style, but the gameplay is rock solid. I would add more enemy types and make the enemies more difficult as you get closer to the end, but other than that it's great!
I wished I had friends to play this with lol
I played your game with a large group of my friends and we completely ignored the horror aspect of the game and it was very funny
This game is genuinely wonderful. It has everything a game should and can have.
I broke it immediantely while being attacked, i put all of my units in the armory so i could camp there and survive. Then when the zombies came, they all got stuck on the desk and couldn't do anything, but one got through and started attacking me, but i was backing up at the time and got phased through a wall.
Great game though, it's well made
hi developer i want say that to that...this game is really nice i like to play it...i played this with my friend and it was very fun...thanks for this game i like how it look like
Check out my video
why is there no multiplayer rooms?
The games are hosted by players so if no one else is playing multiplayer which is nearly always there will be no rooms if you want a room the best chance is to get some friends to play
Thanks for the great game. Do you mind if my friends and I make a video?
Hi I think this game is amazing well done making it! Me and my friends made a copy of it that we play together.(its multiplayer with the soldiers because we just hide in control room)
Dont worry we dont sell it, its just for us.
if you still dont approve I will ask my friends to delete the remake and i will delete the remake.
No worries! Thank you, that's awesome :)
I'm curious to see the remake, I know some people also wanted the soldiers in multiplayer
Ill try to upload the files. There are also some other thing me and my friends added but i dont know if i can upload them because the game is 9 gigabytes (I made alot of changes with my friends)
I know this is a dumb question because its been 2 months since you said this but, are you planning on releasing your files for the game or was it not possible for you, i am very interested in your version of the multiplayer
Improve the shooting mechanics and then the game is better
this game is really fun with friends but how do we mix the cure and complete the map
Thanks! here's a rundown of how to make the cure:
1. Inject an infected's DNA into the cure computer.
2. Gather the needed ingredients and adjust their temperatures.
3. Place the ingredients into the cure computer.
4. Wait for it to mix then take the cure from the bottom slot.
For more detail:
1. Find the injector gun near the cure computer in the Control Room (looks like a pistol, but with a needle on the end)
2. Kill an infected, then approach its corpse and "shoot" it with the injector gun. This might only work on fresh corpses.
3. Go back to the cure computer and "shoot" the square platter on the computer, the one on the right side.
4. The computer will generate a cure and tell you the ingredients needed. The higher the difficulty, the more ingredients needed.
5. The ingredients will be a list of Beakers, such as "Hot Blue Beaker", or "Cold Green Beaker".
6. Start by finding all of the correctly colored Beakers and bring them back to the Control Room.
7. Next you need to make them "Hot" or "Cold". You will find small devices near the cure computer with red and blue buttons.
8. Place a Beaker on the device and press the red button for "Hot", or the blue button for "Cold".
9. Wait until the number on the device reaches the target temperature (100 or -100).
10. Take the beaker and place it into the square slot on the cure computer, the one on the left side.
11. If the beaker is the correct color and temperature, the computer will accept the beaker, otherwise it will reject the beaker.
12. Repeat steps 8 to 10 until all the ingredients are added. You can add them in any order.
13. Once all ingredients are added, the computer will mix the cure. When it's done, pick up the cure and take it with you when you evacuate.
Next question, how do we evacuate?
Oh shoot, sorry I didn't see the notification for this comment!
If you look at the maps on the wall, or in the Control Room, you'll see a blip that indicates where the exit is. If you go to the exit and open the door, you'll be automatically evacuated.
BUT, the blip will only appear AFTER you've survived until the timer runs out (shown on the Control Room interface). Just make sure you repair the transmissions when they go down, since the timer will pause until they've been repaired.
If a transmission needs to be repaired, you will hear a beep and be notified in the top left of your screen. You can find the broken transmission by going to the flashing red blip on the map.
I had a good time with my buddies
Can I remake this for VR (with windows port)?
I appreciate the offer, but I would prefer to keep Control Room as more of an isolated project for the time being. But if things change in the future I'll be sure to let you know!
I'm really just looking for more games to put into my project VR/PC FPS Remakes.
Thanks for the reply!
You're the only one whose actually replied to my post (except OneManArmy, who called me PatrickR2020 and then banned me from the page).
I'm giving full credits to the devs of these games, so if you do let me remake Control Room, I will make sure that there are links to the official game page and your profile.
this game is amazing way scarier than i expected it to be i will have a lot of fun with this
So my friend was using this on linux and the game starts up all fine, music plays, the screens change in the menu but it doesn't react to any inputs and the mouse can only move
Any ideas on how to fix this?
I'm having the same issue, my distro is Manjaro 20.0.3. I can send any additional info. Hope someone can help with that. Thx)
I figured this out. In the file "~/.config/unity3d/CAJJI/Control\ Room/Player.log" was a line telling that libgdk-x11-2.0.so wasn't found. So in Arch-based distros you can download the lib32-gtk2 package. If it wouldn't help, check the log file and install required package.
The gunplay could be more satisfying. And aiming down the sights would be cool too. May even an attachment system in ome of the later updates. Nice game!
Does this game support gamepads?
is this online
Yep! You'll probably have to play with friends though, it's rare to find a random lobby
Hey!! I played it and LOVED the concept!! its a great idea.
Something I find really bothering though: it's too difficult to use that big panel since I have to center the camera over many objects and the camera result moving from side to side :(
It would be great if I could touch 'E' to "zoom in" and then use a mouse cursor for that, just a thought.
Keep it up!
I understand what you mean about interacting with the panel, it can be troublesome sometimes. If you hold right-click, you should be able to zoom in and "aim" a bit better. I know it's not exactly what you have in mind, but hopefully it helps a bit!
Glad you enjoy the game :D
Does multiplayer work yet?
Yep, it's always been working!
If you dont see any lobbies, there may be none made, or they may already be in game. Its best to play with friends because the multiplayer isnt as active as other games!
Good game! There are some rough edges but that is to be expected early on. A little more detail might help. 9/10. Good game to play for an hour or so. Gonna play a again! :)
for some reason, when I've started to try to launch the game, a window pops up with a loading bar, but then immediately disappears and nothing happens. Not sure why but I can't seem to launch the game basically.
Do you mind if I ask what OS you're using? Windows, Mac, or Linux?
There shouldn't be any loading bar when starting the game; does the window say "Extracting"? It could be that you're running the .exe inside of the .zip file instead of extracting the files.
Let me know if this makes sense, if not, I can try walk you through it more!
I'm using Windows. I'm pretty sure I've extracted it and I directly run ControlRoom_v1.62. The picture of the split second loading window is shown here. Sorry I have not replied in some time!
Ahh, I see. I'm not entirely sure why that's happening, but I made a small change based on what I could find through Google.
Can you let me know if this build has the same problem? You should be able to click "Download" in the top right corner.
Truly a masterpiece of an idea. I've played it several times on my pc and it still gives me a horrifying experience.
If It does come out on Android someday I'll definitely be playing it on my spare time. Please make Android and platform for this game that'll be epic
