From the introduction:
Weighting Rooms is a game about recovering past lives, building relationships, gathering good and bad karma, and facing final judgment.
Players take on the roles of characters who have died and awakened in limbo. They feel the weight of karma bearing down on their souls, and they know they will soon be judged.
However they can remember little of their past lives, the motives of their actions, or the criteria that will be used to judge them.
Limbo has taken the form of a building with a mysterious architecture. Characters explore the stories or levels of this structure, and the rooms they discover reactivate stories from their lives. They also uncover clues about the karmic universe they inhabit.
The journey ends with a weighing where the final destinies of the souls are sealed.
