Brilliant and terrifying!

A very fast playthrough (working quickly, only skimming the text, etc) takes about an hour and 45 minutes. I’d say an average playthrough in which you read everything would be somewhere around 2.5-3 hours.

It’s mostly text and image based with a few audio/video segments, including audio from Osgood (a main character) and a clip from the 13th Doctor at the end. Beware of the jump scares and ‘glitching’ screen, which is a part of the game.

Overall, I thought it was great! I think the ideal age for this is teenagers (13+ ?), but adults can enjoy it too. Probably not suited for children as there are several jump scares.

Biggest disappointment

I have played the simulacra game and pipe dreams and Sara is missing and all them blow this monstrosity out of the water. I just do not believe it was made by the same people. The acting was horrible compared to the other ones. No likeable characters and there isn’t even any investigating or things that spice things up or make it seem real. Simulacra 2 being the best game out of all of them was so thought out and had different endings. You really had to think and immerse yourself. This game is the complete opposite I could give it to a two year old and they could figure it out and play it. Zero brain activity needed and the story got so ridiculous unbelievable no likeable characters. It reminds me of a corny action/ attempted horror series come to a game. It’s laughable if anything else. ‘A doctor who’s an alien that time travels who some investigator is friends with?” I didn’t know I was reading a children’s book. I was bored but not angry until that part and then when the investigator nonchalantly says stupid corny preposterous things like “ I died once” with no explanation. Aliens, spirits, the occult, time travel, possessions, coming back from the dead are all interesting if you do it correctly and not just mash them all up in a unbelievable corny child book type of ridiculous. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. the only reason I gave it two stars is because allegedly unless they got it wrong it was made by the simulacra people.

Such a great game, but one major setback

Okay so this game is absolutely amazing. The graphics are great and so is the story. But, I haven’t been able to finish it because it keeps crashing. At first I thought it was fine, but it got to the point to when it crashed it didn’t save my previous data and I had to start all over again. For example, when I had to piece the ‘fragments’ together and delete them so that the weeping angel would be out of the phone. The first two times I tried, it glitched and crashed, causing me to have to start over. The third time I FINALLY made it through deleting the fragments and right as I was done. . .it crashed and I had to start over. Super frustrating.
Overall this is a good game, but I wish it didn’t delete what I already did. (I also am on a really good device, so that probably doesn’t have anything to do with it)
