Can't believe how much I like this app!!!


I downloaded it originally because it was free and it looked different than anything I have ever played. When I first started the game I thought this is kind of bizarre. But after playing it for a while I am hooked. The story is set up as a text message exchange with a stranger. There are times the game will go silent while the character goes to do something. I now find myself checking for updated "texts" before game sends updates because I am compelled by what is going on. The first chapter is free but then it is $1.99 to unlock full content. They end first chapter on a cliffhanger that I had to buy it to find out what happened. I hope by the time I finish this one, they release another one or have sequel. So good. Best choose your own adventure ever.

I was compelled by format and story. I wish it had been longer. I would have also liked a more solid conclusion UNLESS there are more expansions if the story coming. The fact I couldn't binge through the whole thing in an hour because it was set up as more real time plot IS brilliant. It did frustrate my ADHD but I am hoping the story continues. I was hoping for twists and turns. No spoilers but wanted more info on why things were done.

Thank you so much for kind words and great review, we really appreciate it! Hope our next game will be much longer and will have more choices and endings!


out 2 bucks

Don't spend your money on the full version. The story is lazy and badly written filled with flaws and plot holes the "twists" are juvenile and predictable. Almost every speech option is the same and has the same outcome on the conversation and story the stats don't change anything or matter whatsoever the puzzles are either so easy a toddler can figure them out or they're just a nonsense guessing game and there are very few. No character development and super short. A character I saved early on kept getting brought up saying that they were dead when they weren't and I triple checked they were alive another character I tried to save in every possible way at one point and the story wouldn't let you I got achievements for things I didn't do and didn't get achievements for things I did and right before the end the game said sender logged off and didn't come back even though I had it on fast mode so I didn't have to wait for the characters to do anything still waited a whole day and game was still frozen. For these reasons and many more I urge you not to waste your hour of time or $2 on this game I wrote better stories and made better games when I was 10 but unfortunately this is what the entertainment industry has come to, release nonsensical garbage to make a quick buck and the masses eat it up.

Thank for review! The bug with game freezing is fixed in the newest update.

Modern take on text based adventures!


I'll be honest. I didn't think much of the game based on the trailer. I mean how fun could it be to text a random stranger and help them solve a crisis? I mean I have things to do.

But the longer it sat with me, the more I wanted to try it. I wanted to see if the real time aspect of the game was real and worth my time.

It is! It so is. A lot of people complain about 'the waiting' but A that's part of the immersion of the game, and B you can turn that feature off if you are impatient.

You encounter the real time very early when you ask Morgan to do something to help you understand what's going on. It's a short wait, but I turned to my SO after 2 minutes of waiting and said 'wow, this is very realistic in its presentation.'

Then there is the story itself. It's so much fun to guide the horror story. I have theories about where it's going, and I could be very wrong, but just being a part of the experience as it unfolds is enough to bring me back after each 'wait'. I check the app periodically to see if anything new happened lol.

Chapter 1 is free. To unlock the rest of the chapters is a flat $1.99 rate. So give it a whirl and see if it's for you. You aren't obligated to pay at all.

I might not recommend this to your children. The theme alone is definitely not for pre-teens. It deals with life threatening situations and death, like any horror film would.
