You are a dead, failed video game character wandering through the recesses of the Random Access Memory, trying to find peace in the final moments of your existence before being deleted forever...
...but forget that. The real story is that Continue? is an existential metaphor that explores the finite nature of existence and the beauty and tyranny of our desires within it.
It's a bit like Sword & Sworcery, but with more action and weirdness.
Requirements: iPhone/iTouch 4 & up. Works on all iPads.
What happens to dead video game characters?
In the garbage dump of the Random Access Memory, you travel from town to town, meeting people who offer you their lightning and their prayer. Lightning clears the way for you to move forward and prayer builds shelters in a distant town where you must frequently hide to avoid being deleted into nothingness by the garbage collector. Along the way, you are thrust into many battle challenges, the outcome of which effects your shelters. There is ultimately, no way to escape the garbage collector, but running from it buys you time to think, wander, contemplate, and hopefully be at peace with the inevitability of your deletion.
Each game randomly assigns you 1 of the 6 characters and 6 of the 11 areas. There is no set order to the stages of the game.
This game is weird. You've probably figured that out by now. Everything in it however, has a deeper meaning behind it. All of the strange places you go to, people you talk to, and scenarios you go through are part of a greater idea that I hope you spend a second or two trying to figure out and interpret...or not. You can also just play the damn thing.
Also, I can't wait to hear what you have to say. Please share your thoughts and interpretations on the facebook and twitter pages.
Continue? was inspired by existential road trips into nowhere, Peruvian jungle drugs, and a brush with death while lost in the mountains of New Mexico. It is a quest for wonder, contemplation, and peace.

Ratings and Reviews
One of my all time favorites
Once in awhile a game is a true experience.
This one really got me at the core. Beautiful literally and metaphorically.
Please please update for new X devices? I like to fire this up now and then for an existentially calming moment...
Very fun on a playability level, and extremely well thought-out on a conceptual level. Greater depth and attention to detail than the vast majority of phone games out there. Hats off!
Possibly the most emotionally appropriate soundtrack for any video game I've ever played, matched with some truly abysmal controls make this game one of the most beautifully irritating experiences on the AppStore.
