To be remade, we must first come apart. Explore a dreamlike mansion, photograph mysterious spaces, confront your deepest secrets and confess them online as Carmen, junior architect and new hire at an elusive firm.

In this near-future social media world, you’re charged with photographing the inside of an opulent building — but beware: the house is getting to know you too, perhaps better than you know yourself.

You’ll explore lush environments with your phone’s camera in 360° as you search for hidden objects, solve puzzles, and get to know the characters within Carmen’s world.

Explore And Discover with a Vaporwave Aesthetic

I jumped into Holovista after playing the Mesmer & Braid ARG (alternate reality game), go search the web and play along. It’s not needed to know the game, but it’s more fun backstory as you play the game.

This is essentially a discovery and story game purely set in the Vaporwave aesthetic. You’re Carmen. You’re trying to get hired at this architectural company Mesmer & Braid. You take pictures of objects (moving your phone around VR like or with your fingers), and then post them to a social media feed. You discover the story via your social messages and feed. I won’t spoil anything after that.

It’s so refreshing to see fully contained games and experiences on the App Store. Well worth the $5, and just a neat vibe.

These are the kinds of quality games the AppStore needs

I wish I could give the developers of this game a big hug.

These are the kinds of games that the iOS AppStore needs.

Premium Games that have their heart and soul in them. Games that truly capture the essence of the platform they were built for.

Holovista is innovative and makes me crave for more, even while I’m playing it.

Without spoiling this masterpiece, Holovista is a mobile adventure game with modern, 3D, futuristic art at its core. The game is an actual story told through Instagram posts.
The living breathing world of these characters is beautiful and I find myself lost in the universe of this world.

Thank you, developers for making this game and breathing life back into the iOS App Store. Thank you for making this a premium game and NOT some freemium cash grab. Thank you for making this experience and really capturing my heart and mind. I love holovista and I can’t wait to finish it.

This game is visually stunning, which you can a glimpse of from the preview, but is immersive and beautiful in a vivid way, almost psychedelic in terms of imagery and colors. The music and storyline add to the complexity and building tension throughout, and though at times it’s feels voyeuristic to be so close to someone’s thoughts and life history, it’s super engrossing. Definitely a new style of game for me, and had cathartic twists and turns, dealing with real life and believable events. Definitely in the psychological thriller category.
