“Struggling mile after mile and still... everything looks the same.
Am I walking in circles?
Darkness and silence. That’s all I see… that’s all I have.
And a piece of rock-hard bread. My last one.
Trying not to lose hope but… it’s so exhausting when you fight a losing battle.
What is this battle against, anyway? Other People? Myself?
Am I the prey or the hunter?
Oh, God… Dad... I’d need you so much right now…
Where on earth are you?
I’d love to believe that you’re still alive. But I feel nothing.
How much more of this must I take...
I guess it’s still the shock that keeps me going.
The messenger I found made me hope for days now but it seems to be not working. No response. Not even the slightest change of the noise.
Maybe I should get rid of it...”

Really cool game!


I’m a big fan of choose-your-own-adventure text games and this one is very good. I love the voice actress playing Frances, she’s fantastic.

The pros of this game are originality and believability, but most of all the ability to skip puzzles if you’re stuck. The cons, that the dialogue for the playable character usually comes across as mean and not overly sympathetic. Frances is in a pickle and sometimes she has to make hard choices, but I don’t want to be cruel about it.

Another small con is that sometimes while Frances is doing something and you’re still engaged it takes slightly too long. Without giving anything away, she should have signed out a little earlier while she was moving things instead of having me hang around and then leaving anyway. I don’t mind waiting while she’s asleep/busy and disconnected, only while I’m still active.

I’ll definitely recommend this game to my friends. I get the developers had to get us hooked but the ending was way too abrupt. Looking forward to the second chapter being released soon!

Thank you Irene, for your extensive feedback! That helps a lot to push TGWSTW in the right direction and improve upcoming episodes ☻

Am I Missing Something Here?


Has something been left out of this game when it opened in US? I played all the way thru. Which took quite a while as the game will periodically disconnect u while Frances does something. It usually takes several hrs till it will reconnect. If ur gonna try it I'm not gonna ruin it only say it ends abruptly, credits come on thanking you & I know absolutely nothing about Frances, how she came to be there, who she is, nothing. I'm very disappointed.

Reply to Developer: Hi & thank u for responding. Where r the other chapters or r they not out yet? I understood there were to be more chapters but could not find them. I'm sure it doesn't feel good to hear your work negatively critiqued & hope I haven't heard anyone's feelings. When I see Chapter 2 I will try it & change my review appropriately.

Hi Bananapop1963,
sorry to hear that you're disappointed. TGWSTW is an EPISODIC game and we state this clearly in the description as well as in the ending credits. This was just eipsode 1 out of 7. It's the beginning of a huge adventure and we guarantee you that in the end, all questions will be answered :) So, please consider to edit your rating.
We hope to see you in chapter 2!

Cool concept but...


I like the concept of the game and it’s a clever storyline. I like the episodic nature of the game but I think the wait can be very annoying between play. Like when I get a notification from Francis and I think “great! I finally get to play..” then she says one thing and then disconnects and I have to wait indefinitely—again. I get some waiting for suspense and realism but give the user a bit more control of when and how long they can game. I would like to think I can wait this out to see how the story plays out but with each extended wait I start to lose interest.

Developer Response

Thanks for bringing that to our attention. We'll definitely tweak and experiment with different disconnection times to find a golden line for most of the players. We are aware of the fact, that it's a fine line between immersion/exitement and frustration/losing interest.
