This game is beyond good. Everything about it was well thought out. I like the idea of having a phone that you are free to do whatever you please with but still having a story goal that you must accomplish within the phone. I think what got me really hooked on this game was the characters. By reading the chats that Anna and her friends have tells you a lot about how Anna and the people she talks to really are. The connections that the characters have with Anna remind me of the connections Sara did from Sara is Missing. It still has that classic eerie theme about finding a missing person that was taken by some paranormal figure. This game is like and if not better than Sara is Missing. It’s amazing how good the actors are in the videos and that everything including pictures and vlogs contribute to the story and characters. To further this, the actors where so good that for a second I almost thought these were real events happening. It tricks you into thinking that they are real people on a real phone with a real crime. It shows how much you can learn about someone just by going through their phone. In conclusion I would highly recommend this game to anyone who is considering buying it. You will not have the slightest regret from investing time into this game. It is truly extravagant.

This is such a well done game. I love it. It was so thought through. Listen, if you like horror, then this game is for you! And, in my opinion, it was totally worth it to buy it. So if you are thinking about getting this game, buy it for sure. Tbh I almost peed my pants twice in this game. It has a lot of really cool jumpscares that make me jump out of my seat. It is well thought game and I feel like this is the only game I enjoy playing on my phone. All the recorded messages and pictures really made me tgink that there was a lot of effort in this game which makes me smile. If you’re a person who gets easily scared, then this game isn’t really recommend for you, if you’re feeling extra brave, then I encourage you to try it. It is a really great game. Also this game is not ment for the faint of heart and people who are easily disturbed. But the only down side to this is that I wish there were more ways to play the game and what I mean by that is that there are only 5 or 6 paths that you can play through this game, and once you played them all, it kinda feels like your $5 went down the drain. I would like at least 10 storylines at best, but all in all, I love this game.

This game. Y’all don’t know how amazing it was to experience this type of game. The jump scares are ever so entertaining that I almost broke my phone by dropping them to the floor. This is a must for everyone that wants to dig deep into secrets. You devs need to Create another game that’s similar as to this one but another type of twist into the game. More or so like the first one but also be the same as this game too. Plus, make the game extra longer and make it a little more challenging too so that we need our knowledge to know what we need to uncover the story. I apologize for the long review. I’m just so freaking happy that I got to play a game that actually made me jump up not once, not twice, but a couple. You guys friggin made it awesome. Hopefully you guys have another coming soon. Cannot wait to play it if it’s released soon or in the near future.

Id love a developer response about why the photos we’re uncovering are so lame. Really tired and boring things are discovered as you look for Anna. Amazingly, the pictures are even more banal than the average person’s most pointless selfies. It bears mention that I left this review once before and the company found a way (perhaps by lying, or by filing a false report of indecent language?) to have the review deleted. I’ve said it again, hopefully they won’t lie to Apple (again?) to get a valid criticism removed. Getting some people who make creative use of the camera would not be a bad idea. It’s an extremely, jarringly mundane collection of emails and photos. A good idea and a lot of momentum—this would be a good opportunity for someone who was _actually creative_ to work on your project with you, but your group as it stands is just taking a lot of cat photos and uninteresting people smiling in shopping malls and passing it off as “ooooh, you unlocked content!” Such a wasted opportunity, and the praise people are heaping on this is mind-boggling. Unless it’s mostly lies, which, since they are somehow able to delete their negative reviews, wouldn’t surprise me. Developer response?

I love this game! I love the tasks you have to do and the mystery is amazing to solve, but I was a little disappointed at how limited you are in doing things, like you only get notifications from the people you are supposed to talk to, jabbr, or the emails you get when stuff is backed up into the phone. I would’ve liked to have seen more interactions with other characters like the parents, (I was really surprised the mother didn’t text or call at least once) or more interaction between Greg and Taylor to where they make up and work together. I would’ve loved to see an ending where Greg can be killed instead (unless I just haven’t figured that out yet) or being able to kill both. Also we don’t ever find out what happened to Toby (anna’s cat). There weren’t a lot of jump-scares and I do hope more get added. overall though, an amazing game, I think if you just added a few things would be perfect! Love your work!
