Strange Telephone is a 2D adventure game in which the player explores strange worlds created with merely 6 digits, and has multiple endings.
The protagonist Jill is trapped in a dark world with a large door floating before her. She is aided by Graham, who takes on the form of a telephone. Making phone calls with Graham creates various worlds that can be explored. In each of these worlds are items to be found, including the key that will lead to her escape.

Ratings and Reviews
I took a chance on this game. It had no reviews or ratings at the time. Essentially, you enter random phone numbers that transport the player to different rooms looking for objects and clues to help escape. Beyond that, it plays like a point-and-click adventure game.
You’re encouraged by the developer to share numbers with other players. But, I feel like that may lead to unsatisfying spoilers (don’t know). On the other hand, the alternative is to just get lucky calling random numbers. So far, that’s what I’ve been doing with *some* success.
It’s a cool idea, but it’s difficult for me to see if this game mechanic is ultimately going to be endearing or not. Ultimately, I like how unique the game is. But, given the sheer number of permutations, a lot of rooms feel empty and useless. Progress feels random; without outside help, that’s what it largely is.
A very strange point and click
A randomly generated point and click is unusual, though this game makes it quite a fun experience! Exploring the worlds are quite fun.
It's a bit short though I think it's worth it if you like the tone of games like yume nikki. There are multiple endings but i've only managed to get three of them so far.
Good pixelart and music, definitely worth dropping some cash on.
Beautiful lightweight game
I love everything about this game. It runs so smooth, takes almost no time to load. Love the idea that you can share numbers with friends.
Definitely worth the buy
