You are tasked with helping Cat, a culture journalist caught up in a whistleblowing case.
She reaches out to you via text message, and your job is to guide her through a series of challenges and situations to help her investigate and...stay alive!

Search clues on the Web, face random events, help her find her way using navigation apps, but beware, your choices will have consequences!

The story plays out in real time during several days: you will receive notifications throughout your day as Cat is sending you new messages. You can directly answer or catch up later when you’re available.

Reach one of the different endings and then you'll be able to jump back to earlier points in the story, see what happens when you make a different choice, and explore different paths.

Somewhere is a realistic and immersive interactive fiction that will push you to check if you have some news.

Very fun game!

When I first downloaded this game, it was on a different device than I have now, and it just stayed fixed on the loading screen, and I couldn’t get it to work. I recently remembered the game and tried downloading it (thankfully I am still using the same Apple ID) and it loaded fully! I love the real time aspect, it makes it more fun when Cat is actively texting you. This is an amazing game and definitely worth buying, although I still don’t know what happened at first. ☺️

Really fun game for what it is

I really enjoyed this game. I liked the aspect of having to wait real time to find out what happened to Cat after your decisions. It builds the suspense. If you want to play a game where you can binge it all at once, this just isn’t the game for you. The only suggestion I would have is the ability to turn off the fact that if you fail several times, it will ‘auto-succeed’ you. It was frustrating finally understanding what I had to do to help her, just to have it skip the choices so I don’t get the chance to. Besides that small criticism (which I only encountered once), it was a really great game and I hope you can put out more!

Game is boring

The game is kind of boring. You do everything from texting
