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.

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!

Amazing Game That Has Some Issues


I’ve played this game for a while now and I have loved it! It’s really fun and immersive and the story is really good. However, when I click on certain answers and then come back when I’m supposed to, some of my choices are erased and I have to pick them again. This gets annoying because I have to keep redoing things I’ve already done. Hopefully this can be fixed, cause I really love this game.

Absolutely amazing


The developers worked really hard on making this game some of the riddles were a bit challenging but I used the internet to help. I love how interactive the game was it immersed me into the story like I was really there. Also like a review said it does show how easy we are to give up our information.

And I just found out that DMlM means death makes life's matter
That was deep !
