The Chinese Room’s cult classic Dear Esther arrives on iOS for the first time, in this faithful interpretation of the internationally renowned game. A man stands on a desolate Hebridean shore. As he takes his first step forward, he starts to speak: “Dear Esther...” and so begins a dreamlike, complex tale of love, loss and redemption. We’re invited to explore the windswept island, descending into an eerie, otherworldly story where reality fragments and falls apart. Generally recognised as kick-starting the walking simulator subgenre, Dear Esther features dynamic narration that means the story changes each time you return to the island. Since the original release, Dear Esther has sold over one million units and is seen as a benchmark in interactive and emotional storytelling. PC Gamer said it “provokes thought and feeling in a way few other games do.” It also won praise for its visuals and music, with The Daily Telegraph saying “Dear Esther's visuals are majestic”, and Jessica Curry’s soundtrack receiving awards and nominations from BAFTA among others.” Dear Esther includes subtitles in French, German, Spanish and Russian. We strongly recommend playing the game with sound on, it's great with headphones. If you need any help please contact us at

Very engaging game. Not much I can say that hasnt already been said. Changed the way I look at games.... it is short running at 2 hours tops if you’re taking your time. This “game” has a way of transforming the player. It really is like being submersed in a mind altering book that has an other-worldliness tinged throughout its duration. You are on a pilgrimage alone and have lessons to learn

Very moving, haunting and satisfying game. I feel as if I’m walking inside a story.

I can’t speak to how this plays on PC but for iOS it isn’t worth the effort. The game has no save state and after 10 minutes of trying to navigate I had to stop only to find myself back at the beginning when I picked it up again. It is also very slow paced which gets boring quickly.

The game itself is beautiful, but it lacks any sort of interaction. You can only walk through it triggering short narratives. It reminds me of myst without any puzzles. To be honest I was disappointed by the game.

Not sure how you’re supposed to move. On my phone there’s no obvious way to distinguish between looking around and walking around.
