Enhance your experience with The Nex Band.
In the dystopian city of Nicque, tensions run high. A decade-long energy drought has caused mass poverty and famine, and the people are ready to revolt. The few wealthy elite who control the government are uneasy and have granted more authority to the brutal Constabulary to keep the peace. Brynne and Thierre, two students in love, attend a protest rally that turns violent, and the Constabulary moves in with pepper spray and handcuffs. The couple get in a physical altercation with an officer, and while one escapes, the other is arrested and hauled off to Nicque’s most horrible, hidden prison: the Gorge, from where no one ever returns.
Playing as either Brynne or Thierre, set off on a quest to find and reach the mythical Gorge before it’s too late. The clock is ticking—and you only have until sunrise to find the Gorge and stage a jailbreak, or else the love of their life is gone for good.

I LOVE THIS STORY!
I don’t want to ruin it, but it’s a really well written create your own path story that is quite deep. It’s read mostly as dialog but there are a bunch of mini games sprinkled throughout the story so that you feel you’re more a part of it. I didn’t have a chance yet to use the actual carpulet bracelet. When you’re in the classroom, the story let’s you craft different elements on the phone which you can see would not be as fun as using the actual bracelet. But the story more than makes up for it. The artwork is beautiful as well although sometimes I was hoping that the scenery would change a bit more often. The music is also great. I find myself reading the story with the background music on in my headphones. Definitely worth reading!
I just finished the story and it’s amazing!!!
I hope they come out with a sequel. As for the nex band, I did end up getting one after getting through more than half of the story. It makes it more fun but I wouldn’t say it’s absolutely necessary. If you’re ONLY interested in the story, I’d say skip the band. But I should say the band is cool for fitness, notifications, camera, music control and a bunch of other fun things.
I already had a nex band and i used it with the game.
it’s much more fun that way as you feel more part of the story. but even without the band, it’s really a good page turner. if you’re expecting a fruit ninja style game, look elsewhere though! this IS an interactive novel for people who like to read on their phones. but compared to the other stories out there, this one is really nice.
