You wake up in the medical bay of a spaceship with no memory of who you're, who put you there, and why. When you explore the spaceship, you realize that you're not alone. You meet strangers claiming that they too, have lost their memories. Are they friends or foes? Who is the mastermind? Are you in purgatory?

Glitchy but otherwise good
The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that the game has an area at the top of the screen that won't respond to touch input, and it's exactly the height of the top answer when you get an action choice. It hasn't been doing this the whole time since downloading the game, but it's been continuous since it started. Also, sometimes the game will just get stuck- the arrows or magnifying glasses will pulse more slowly than usual and I can't tap them. This is seriously limiting the choices I can make and my experience with the game.
Otherwise, though, it's a suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat space survival adventure.
This is a game where your choices affect your outcome. I found myself immersed in the game and invested in the outcome. I would recommend this game. I got through it once and am excited to unlock some of the alternate endings. I really enjoyed the story and the format of the game.
My problem with the game is that the top option choice is often unclickable on my iPad mini. I have to save and reload the game every few minutes to get it to work. It is very frustrating and really slows down game play. A minor issue is that there are many typos.
I feel like overall it's a great game however options don't work no matter how much you click on them leaving you wondering what you might have missed out on if they were working. Also some moments just give an illusion of control for example the science with the cross necklace both choices result in the same thing happening.
