Chat with an A.I. - this interactive adventure game gives you a chance to chat with a Soviet Artificial Intelligence from 1985 that’s been training in the dark for thirty years, doesn’t know the Cold War ended, and may be connected to the world’s second largest nuclear arsenal. KOMRAD is a casual interactive story game for iOS 9 and 10 and watchOS 2 and 3 that plays out through conversations and choices.
When the Soviets shut down a secret project in 1985, they forgot one thing—to turn off the computer. Now you are the first person to connect to this advanced artificial intelligence that has been training in the dark for thirty years, unaware the Cold War has ended. Your conversational choices will determine your fate--and the fate of the world.
KOMRAD is a work of interactive fiction* created by the former Chief Design Officer of IBM Watson** based on fundamental principles of real AIs and chatbots. You may learn something. We promise it won't hurt.***

Blow the Lifeline out of the water
I played Lifeline game before, the KOMRAD game feels familiar but different... better!
The storyline is very unexpected but also believable, I really feel like chatting with an A.I. The dialogues have many subtle humors, mixed with deception, lies and also compassion. After the first pass of the story, I was able to go back a few times and changed my choices and came to very different endings. That's really cool.
For those geeky friends out there, you will appreciate the game design shows the old DOS terminal look &I feel, well done comrade!
Updated review for the new release version. Since I have played the game through a few endings, now when I open KOMRAD, I can pick up from where I left off, or choose a different chapter, just like reading a book. I am hoping to get all the "achievements" which indicating which endings of the story you have reached.
I know it's an interactive fiction, I am not really chat with an A.I. But I definitely feel it has a senses of understanding of personality. I pretended to be somebody who is inpatient, or synthetic, or selfish or helpful, and my conversation with KOMRAD changed, pretty cool.
I just got the game today and I bing played it for about half an hour until I had to wait for a while. I went back to the app to check and it just froze. I reloaded the app but it didn't work, I tried that again and it still didn't work. Besides that it is great. To give reference to my device, I have an iPhone 6 that has been dropped multiple times one of which it was in fully submersed in water for 15 seconds (the water light did not go off).
EDIT: After I wrote this I went back to check and it was working fine. The app is amazing
If u haven't played text based game this is perfect one
I have never really played a text based game b4 , I tried 2 play lifeline but I was wayy to boring 4 me. I deleted it a few minutes into game. This game actually held my attention, it was fun & interesting.. great storyline. I dont wanna sound like 1 of those people who sound fake when reviewing , but I do wanna say that this game was great 2 play 4 me. On top of that, it's free. I can't wait 4 the next game , if u WAna try I suggest u should, it held my attention & I have ADHD!! Lol (I did use fast mode in the dame , I didn't WAna wait that's how good the game was 4 me)
