Stunning, Amazing, Played a Million Times

How do you describe a masterpiece that doesn’t end? From the alternate endings, the threads connecting the ensign and a dark room, to the builder and humanity’s struggle to survive, this game can only be called stunning. Please, give it a chance! Try to survive on this dystopian world, make good choices and make horrible, monstrous ones. Learn the legacy of the wanderers, learn about the destruction of earth. Honestly I don’t know how to convince you of how wonderful this game is.

99¢ is literally pocket change. So it’s an app, whatever. This story is better than any book or movie you’ve seen in the past year. Try it for goodness sake. And play the ensign too!

A truly satisfying experience

Got the new iPhone yesterday. So wanted to play some new games to enjoy the bigger screen. Came across this text based adventure and couldn’t resist. It had been a while since I last played a text based game and decided to give this a shot. Needless to say, I wasn’t disappointed.
The game is simple to begin and has an amazing progression. This can be a case in study for tutorial done right, without making it seem like a tutorial.
What this game lacks in visuals, it more than makes up for it with its soul. A truly amazing experience.
Can’t wait to start a new adventure.

Hard Mode Please!

Edit: I miss the old version! The one where you start off with nothing! If you could just make it so I could turn off getting those extra supplies at the start, I would be very grateful

This is an amazing game. I go to it whenever I need something familiar and comforting, and it never lets me down. Amir has created a terrific world and combined it with a beautiful gameplay and an excellent story. It can be dark at times, but it's always worth a play through. I have his other two games as well and they're also fantastic. They're well worth it.
