We decided to publish the interactive story Duskwood in episodes. Not to annoy you - quite the contrary! It was important to us that you could start right away, even though the game is not finished. While you're already searching for Hannah, solving puzzles and making decisions, we're working on the sequel.


You are connected to your friends in Duskwood via chat messenger. This allows you to receive pictures, videos, voice messages and even phone calls. Your answers, choices and decisions influence what others reveal of themselves, whether they like you, and even change the course of the story. This type of role play game (rpg) is also called text adventure, cyoa, decision- or choice games. It belongs to the genre of interactive fiction.

Just download it. Trust me

I have just finished my first playthrough of this game, and I have to say I absolutely adore it. This is my favorite mobile game by a landslide, and I’m so glad I played it all the way through. Starting this game, it felt as though it would take forever to play. Once I actually got to a more consistent plot and the characters warmed up to me, I fell in love with this game. The actors are amazing, and you can feel how much work these creators have put into this game.

I bought the multimedia pack and I feel that it was absolutely worth it, because it allows you to feel like these characters are like your family, and you can even have a romantic interest. You also have the ability to see more of the town of Duskwood, and that added to the experience. The way I figure it, most games and books would cost more money than this pack costs, so I’m happy to give my money to this game (even as a poor college student). In case you are wondering, I have not been asked to do this review and it is completely my own love that has brought me to give these 5 stars. I would give more if I could.

If you’re wondering if you should get this game, the answer is YES. It’s wonderfully thrilling, and the ending is wonderfully done. I really look forward to their next game, and I hope to see them thrive.

Story is flawless, mini games poorly executed and ruin entire game

I was initially intrigued because I saw that there aren’t any ads and I was excited because I love a good mystery that really gets you into the story. It was great at first. They give you a ton of content in the beginning episode, and some in the second and then they start forcing you to play these asinine mini games. I’m all about some match 3 games but these are basically impossible at times. I’m on episode 4 I think? And I’ve been stuck on the same section of puzzles for a few days. Each time I run out of hearts because I get destroyed by RNG and there just simply aren’t enough moves/chances to finish a game. What’s really frustrating is getting it down to the last key or last piece needed and I run out of lives. And unless you pay for more chances you’re screwed out of a basically completed puzzle and have to start over and let RNGeezus do it’s thing. I paid for premium because I loved the story so much and wanted to be more engrossed in it, but man I’m close to deleting this app and never playing again simply because of the mini games. Honestly I’d rather watch ads and that’s pretty bad. I appreciate the hard work and effort that went into the story line, and I only wish that there was a way to pay to bypass the mini games or have it already be included in the premium pass. Please fix this, I really want to focus on the story and I just can’t because the games are so off putting.

Beyond impressed.

The Dev team, writers, actors all on point-Duskwood has achieved beyond measure. Immersive- Instagram accounts for the characters. If you spring for the Multimedia pack (just a few dollars), you’ll also get video calls, and can see the character’s in game pictures. BUT, you absolutely do not need it to play the game fully. One drawback to the IRL Instagram accounts: people have posted the whole story on Cleo’s page.
App Dev: OMG. Created by someone as obsessive and methodical as I am. The look, the feel, the flow- all perfect.
NO ADS! Really.
Mini- game: ok. A bit of a gripe here. I get stuck on some of them and can’t progress. I have a hunch this is on purpose to slow gameplay down and give the team time to create new content, but still. EDIT: Those games though!!! I’m in episode five and now they are coming up after every brief convo. I’m spending faaaaaar more time on the Match 3s than on the game 🤬
Writing: WOW- beyond par with any game I e played. I strongly suspect that the writing is done by these characters- it truly feels like these are real people writing the script- I mean like this four person team aren’t just paid actors, they are the creators of the game. When The Vote happened, I was actually upset. Got an in game text, son heard the chime and I said “it’s probably Jessie again”. Most EPIC choose your own adventure book ever written.
