NoStranger is not a game, it's a conversation.
As the app opens, you receive a message from a stranger.
But by the end of your experience, you will know his name, his motivation, and his dark secret.
You will be led on a user-choice-driven narrative; searching through blogs, contacting the story’s characters, and scouring social media websites to find out more. Through real-time conversation, you will delve deep, and sometimes not so deep ;), exploring the interconnectedness of our virtual world.

With inspiration from titles such as LifeLine and Her Story,
​NoStranger uses real websites, phone numbers, and videos to create a believable, immersive experience.

One of the best games I’ve ever played

This game is great it’s so many things in one game it has many puzzles and you can bond and gain trust with the stranger your texting to or you can not the most amazing thing about this game is how it combines the real world and the games world making him the person your talking to feel real every time something weird would happen it would send shivers down my back and even though this is the most amazing part of the game the best part of the game is probably how you can be yourself in this game you can relate with the games main character and you can gain emotions for the game and especially the stranger after playing this game I and you will probably realize why it is called no stranger.

Chillingly Amazing

NoStranger takes the text-mystery genre to a whole new level. The game (it hardly feels like a game, it's so real) takes users between the app and the real world as they work with their new online 'friend,' and I quickly found myself immersed and invested in my convos with Adam. As I progressed through the story and foraged into the recesses of the internet and Adam's mind, I found my unease steadily growing. The amount of work and creativity put into the game clearly shows- it's even more amazing since it's a free app!
No spoilers here, but the game also left me thinking about how unwittingly we give up our personal information, and how easily one can be emotionally manipulated. All in all, amazing game, and I look forward to more!

Just play this game

It’s hard to think that it’s a game because of all the things it has you do. There was so much creativity, thought and hard work put into it. It’s such a great game and had me go through so many emotions. There were times where I felt sad, happy, loved, angry, excited, etc. This game is actually crazy though- like, I can’t put it into words how fantastic it is. Please just give it a try if you’re up for riddles and adventure. It’s worth it
