Great game

The game is great with a nice story to tell. I found myself more and more intrigued with how the case progressed as I went through the episodes and I found myself longing for an answer to know who murdered Jerome. The immersion and gameplay aspects were very well handled. My only problem with the game is that it tends to crash a bit, especially in the last two episodes. When the game crashed I found that I couldn’t progress further upon reloading as some of the options for conversations needed for game progress suddenly didn’t show up anymore and I was forced to replay the entire episode scenario once more from scratch. This gets a bit irritating if it happens 2-3 times on the same episode. I faced the same issue when I received a call in the middle of an episode and suddenly the game considered it as me quitting and progress was denied. All things considered I would rate it a solid 8/10. I removed points only due to my frustrations with the crashes and redoing of plot required.

Really enjoyable/ see below for update

This game screams high production values on every level, it must have taken a lot of work to make and I can’t believe it’s free, it’s better than most paid games, normally interactive stories bore me and I’ve no patience scrolling texts but this is truly immersive and exciting, with twists round each corner, the music alone is fantastic, add to that the writing ( lingo thoroughly researched) the brilliant characters and game layout and you have a stand out gaming experience. I especially love the intro music and camera work. Very talented developers and I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase a game from them in the future. Edit: so this great team is now called Scriptic and have brought out their second series about an influencer online and it’s really great. I purchased the season it is quite expensive but well worth it, it looks like season one is now available to buy I feel lucky I caught it early on. This team deserves to make money from such great content, I hope ppl support them and put their hand in their pockets. I will definitely buy a season 3 based on how great 2 was. Also I loved the idea of being a 999 operator in the free content and would love more of these? Great idea!

Great but don’t really have much choice and effect

(Only did the red man one) This is really well written and put together, and has a lot of potential. Great story and well put together with great features and interesting twists.

However you realise towards the end that actually, only two choices (made in quick succession) have any actual effect on the story. Otherwise you are forced into doing the same actions regardless of what you want to do. I also never finished it as I made it through most of the last episode (which is largely just a repeat of the previous episode, with a slightly different choice made, hence I was getting very bored slowly reading through the same very long interview) and closed the app. This time when I opened the app again, it had gone back to the beginning of the episode. Having already sat through 30 mins of what I had already done once before that, I couldn’t be bothered to go through it all a third time, so I never finished this. Quite disappointing actually, especially as I did enjoy so much of this.
