A Magical Experience

A cross between Undertale, Doki Doki Literature Club, and an idle clicker game would be my best description of this app. The graphics are absolutely beautiful, and the style reminds me of a grim anime that everyone gets hooked on at least once in their lives. There is an odd, cultish feeling to the repeated mantras within. Instead of deterring me, it keeps me guessing for what may happen next.

In order to proceed in this game, you must tap on speech bubbles and “read” an interesting choice of books in order to gain EGO, the game’s main currency. When you have enough, you speak with Es, a mysterious and intelligent bookworm with several things to hide. Each time you visit, you either learn more about yourself through thoughtful games, quizzes, and puzzles, or you learn more about the world you are in. Another character that you see quite often is Façade, a stone face that bids you to stay on the path you are on and keep yourself from going astray. A constant fight between the calculated but impulsive Es and the stubborn but good intentioned Façade will bring you towards enlightenment...or the brink of insanity.

Those who love secrets, creativity, and reading between the lines, as well as have a healthy respect for choice-based and clicker games, will absolutely enjoy this wonderful, spine-tingling, and immersive adventure.

Unique & Beautiful

This game has a rather simple concept but in short due time, it can get you really emotional by self realization/critical questions about yourself and it’s execution at that is pretty well done i must say especially as someone who’s just coming to this game without knowing what to expect. Music/soundtrack here is also really fantastic really calming and welcoming. Nice light tones with elements such as piano that can easily leave you wanting to stay more and dive deeper into it all. Graphics and the character designs such as Es and book descriptions and titles are all really well made and interesting.

I’ve ultimately decided this is a game that I can highly recommend to anyone to check out and one title I’m going to keep and will continue to play and check up on for a very long time. I’m going to give this a 5/5 and Thank you developers and everyone behind this for making this experience :)

Install immediately.

While searching for a game that would keep me entertained having little expectations for the game I installed, I came across alter ego. After completing the good ending and taking in the sheer relief of finally completing the game after trial and error, I came to write a review not only the best mobile game I have ever played, but one of the best games I have ever played. After the start of the game, I was committed to find the lore of this game, desperately trying to progress, take the personality tests, and talk to es. After getting the bad ending despite my slow progress, I was more committed than ever to completing the game and finding the good ending. After finding the ending, I was satisfied with the ending and with the game, something uncommon with mobile games for me.
Believe me, this game will start of slow, but if you persist, I can guarantee you will be satisfied. Please please download this masterpiece of a game.
