Interesting

I started this game without sound.. I didn’t realize all of the diaries were telling a story in the background.. once I sorted that out I got into the story. The review before mine thought the characters were unrealistic. I actually thought the characters reminded me of my lesbian friends when I was a teenager. The biggest problem I had with this game was OSCAR!!! I found the ouija board and messages from Oscar from the other side.. I was anticipating there being some supernatural element to the story line, but the story of Oscar’s ghost went nowhere. I figured there would be some surprise but that never happened. I also got the drift mom was cheating with a coworker and dad was a depressed failure, but those stories didn’t evolve either. I felt like there were a lot of hints and unnecessary scraps of paper/notes that didn’t relate to the story but almost seemed to be leading to something that just didn’t. I do like these sort of simulations and exploring this old house with secret rooms and doors. It was an entertaining few hours.

Seems like it would be awesome if only…

I could navigate my surroundings more easily. I am using a iPad 2018 edition In landscape mode. It seems that I can only walk in a straight line unless I raise the look sensitivity option. However, this presents its own set of problems, as I have to be very careful because I could end up on the other side of the room with just a tap. I understand the concept of block on the left side and top on the right side And that there is a little tiny white dot that controls what I am looking at and interacting with, but, for instance, I will go to open the drawer that has papers with the writings and restores and other things inside of it, and I won’t be able to investigate what’s inside of it because of the angle of my view of the drawer. I’ve spent up to 10 minutes trying to get my angle right and when I do it’s not exactly as satisfying as that’s way too long to just be able to navigate. Am I doing something wrong? It seems like such a cool game I’m just so upset that I can’t seem to navigate it properly
