This is possibly the best mobile game I've ever played. The story scenes are well written with beautiful ambient noises and music, as well as pretty colorful designs that contrast with the black background and white text. The only issue I found is on the end test results for the 4th exam, there is a misspelling of you're, spelled your. The puzzles in this game are very challenging and really require you to think. The spider key one really stumped me, and I had to look up an online walk through to solve it. Even better, once the story is done, there are a few mini games and other features that can be unlocked and played around with. My only question is where do you go after you beat the high score of 143 and read Skot's note? I haven't found an answer. All in all, this is a beautiful and thought provoking game with challenging puzzles and an interesting story. I would love to see more of these in the future. Great job Skot.

Well, Skot, you've consumed a few of my hours, so far. I've played the main game and am now working on those Easter eggs. I still need a few. I've replayed a few times to try and see if they were hidden there, but I'm still not sure what to do. I need a few more, the Tree, Ghost, 1124 and 11:11. I'll figure it out, eventually. The game itself was very immersive, as your description would suggest. I needed a bit of help on a few of them, my first time around. While the hints worked for most, I could not, for the life of me, understand the spider key. I had to look that one up. Creative. The puzzles were generally doable, even if I had to resort to hints, a few times. My first play through took about an hour or so. While some may say that isn't worth the price, I quite enjoyed the story itself. Predictable, at times. Even so, the introspective aspect was something that really interested me. I enjoyed it, at least. In addition, while I did only spend an hour the first time, I've replayed several times. Right now, I think I've spent a total of four or five hours on the game. Well worth the price, I would say. Thanks for the game. Tl;dr: Challenging but doable puzzles, interesting if a bit short and predictable plot. Recommended to anyone who likes text-based games with good plot. Not recommended to someone who can't stand puzzlers and/or can't bear to spend money on games.

It was a short little game (though it says there's more secrets, and I look forward to exploring those just as soon as I finish writing this!) You'll find yourself anticipating what's going to happen, as some of the plot devices are recycled, but then there's twists that are so satisfying. At no point did it feel stale, every character felt distinctive and real. I found myself thinking of what I'd do in Able Black's position, found myself relating to their cycling emotions. I don't write reviews, ever, because I don't know what to say. I don't buy apps, because I work a part-time minimum wage job, and when I do buy them, I always feel guilty for it. Not this time. I don't regret it at all, this was a completely enjoyable experience from beginning to end. And that's why I'm writing a review. Because I would absolutely love to see more from this developer.

Skot! Am doing as I m told to ;-) Thank you thank you for this experience. I want more of your work! I hope you will eventually have this as a novel as well. In a mere couple of hours you have definitely earned a fan. Currently the puzzles are just hard enough but not breaking the flow and enthusiasm to continue the story. Though I didn't get the fear + surprise initially as I thought it had to rhyme and the answer didn't quite make sense in the context. As feedback, I think the puzzles are fine now, but they have so so much potential to be further integrated to the emotional flow and the stages of the tests. Short of doing Meyer Briggs or Strength Finders but there could be a lot of psyc tests that can build into the flow of the story that make the reader invest even more personal connection. Plus of course you can also make this highly replay-able by allowing the 99 wrong paths :-)

Hmm it's hard to define exactly how to express my feelings for this game. I had to spend two dollars for this game that was recommended to me by a close friend and it only took one hour to complete. That being said, the story and interaction within this game led me through emotional ups and downs of which I have rarely experienced in most of the console games that have taken me weeks or months to complete. Skot, you truly have a gift and a talent for storytelling and drawing people in like never before. Please make a game like this that lasts much longer with a story that continues much further. I loved this game and looking back, two dollars was chump change compared to the intense experience I was able to feel in playing this unique, captivating game. Thank you so much and keep up the good work!!!
