Ratings and Reviews
This really allows you to get as close to and actual solitary confinement experience as you can without actually being in prison. This is a great app and really takes you for an impact. I kind of wish it lasted longer to really get a better long term isolation feeling but still great none the less.
I always knew that solitary was a bad place but 6x9 really shows you what the people in this small cramped cells have to deal with. It will literally drive you insane. Great app and very well made.
