** Winner of Apple Design Award 2014 **

A surreal thriller in which the written word is your map, as well as your narrator.

DEVICE 6 plays with the conventions of games and literature, entwines story with geography and blends puzzle and novella, to draw players into an intriguing mystery of technology and neuroscience.

Anna wakes up in a castle on a remote island, with little recollection of how she got there. All she remembers is an unusually unpleasant doll.

Why are there two identical castles on the island? Who is the mysterious man in the bowler hat? And above all, what is the purpose of the tests Anna is put through?

Read, listen and peek into three-dimensional photographs to solve the bizarre mysteries of DEVICE 6.

"DEVICE 6 is designed to linger in the mind long after the last code has been cracked and the last sentence read. Spy stories - even traditional ones - often haunt their readers' dreams once they've been completed. It's only appropriate, really. Is that a final full-stop or a microdot? Is this the end of the affair or an invitation to go deeper?"
Eurogamer - 9/10

"In using its text both as narrative and as geography – and through its impressively restrained use of illustration and sound – it generates an almost unrivalled sense of place. It isn’t embarrassed to allow Device 6 to be a game when it needs to be, and yet it knows precisely when to let the story take over. The result is a sharp, striking mystery that is at once provocative, extraordinarily stylish and altogether essential"
EDGE - 9/10

"In turning a text adventure into a world map, Simogo has resurrected a long-dead genre with style and confidence. Great presentation and brilliant puzzles complete a stellar package"
Pocketgamer – 9/10

"Ever exceeding expectations, the developer has followed up one of 2013′s highlights with another title that can be classed as such. With a compelling story that keeps you guessing, and a pin-point utilisation of the platform, Device 6 is an accomplishment in games design, mobile or otherwise"
God is a Geek - 9/10

"DEVICE 6 not only explores the boundaries of narrative storytelling, it also demonstrates the creative potential of touchscreen gaming"
Appspy – 5/5

"Simogo’s doing something few others are doing, and it’s wonderful that someone is both providing great experiences and testing the limits of interactive media"
148apps - 5/5

"An ingenious slice of puzzling adventure that's as imaginative as it is stylish"
Modojo - 4.5/5

Customer Reviews

Still the best iPhone game I've ever played

It's been quite a while since I finished Device 6, and I've tried every game reddit's claimed is similar, but nothing's come close to this...except maybe the dev's other games; Year Walk is also amazing (I drew maps! I downloaded software to better render my maps!), and Sailor's Dream makes the phrase 'hauntingly beautiful' ashamed that it's ever been used to describe anything else (and the soundtrack is 60% of my 'Creepy sleepy music for bedtime' playlist). Still, really, _this_ game know that feeling when you're like suffocating because everything is always mundane and profane, and all you want is something strange and glorious and terrible like Rilke and not like updating spreadsheets or acid reflux? Like you just want to feel like Christmas lights or the moon or the top of a mountain? This game is that. It's air. I like super like it.

One-of-a-kind, innovative, and unforgettable gameplay

This game is a mystery-genre story text-based puzzle game. Each chapter (level) has numerous progressively-challenging puzzles that work together to advance to the next chapter. The experience of this game is unforgettable and irreplaceable and truly one-of-a-kind. I was amazed and sincerely loved it! It provides a fresh gameplay unlike any other game I have yet had the opportunity to play. So is this game for you? I say yes, if you are a fan of mystery short stories, video games, and challenging puzzles; this game provides an excellent blend of each. What is this game not? It is not merely a puzzle game that is just mundane puzzle after puzzle so if you're looking for a puzzle game, in that sense, then this is likely not what you are seeking.


This is not like any game I have played before. It's basically an interactive book. It is very well done and very imaginative and absorbing. The puzzles are basically a way to advance to the next chapter, where equal weight is placed on the reading and observations plus the challenge of figuring out the puzzles. It's long enough, but I wish it was longer.
This is the second game I have played by this developer (I played Year Walk), and maybe I am more sensitive to a 1st-person experience where things get unpleasant. As with the other game, I found this one a bit disturbing too. It is a good game, so I would recommend it if my previous comment doesn't bother you. I guess I have learned my lesson and probably should stop downloading any more games by this developer! :/
