DEAD CITY is an incredibly thrilling interactive chat story which cannot be told without your help. For Sam, you are the only contact outside of the evacuated area.

Live up to the trust placed in you and guide Sam through the post-apocalyptic chat text adventure game in real-time.

Make your choices carefully, as they will have severe consequences on the story of the game.

DEAD CITY's interface is based on a chat messenger app (similar to Lifeline) representing your connection to Sam.

It is neither necessary to answer all messages immediately nor to have the game open permanently.

You will be notified about new events even if the App is closed and you can decide yourself how things should be run.

Sam needs the help of a good friend. Without you Sam will not survive the next days!

Good, Not Great

This thing that personally bugged me is that I’m pretty sure there’s only 2 differing endings, correct me if I’m wrong. Also I felt like the talking intervals were very short, like exchange for 3 mins then Sam was gone for an hour. There was also multiple times where there were spelling errors and improper grammar, so much that I’m really confused how the producers didn’t notice. Lastly, a lot of times there was a choice between two responses, a nice one and a not as nice one. But I felt this feature was stupid cause it doesn’t impact the story whether you’re nice to him or not and also 99% you get the same response whether you’re nice or not. I think the game needs a lot of work but there’s definitely potential. I was impressed by the wide range of characters, a feature I haven’t seen in a lot of these kinds of games. I also like how it somewhat mimicked a sleep schedule with the main character which helped me keep up and align it with mine. I’ll be interested in what the company does next because I think this could be a very valuable learning point so I will be playing games from them again, just didn’t think this one was great. Excited to see what’s next!

Decent but a few bugs

The syntax is occasionally wrong and the sentences look like they were translated from another language. Also the game doesn’t interact with the Apple Watch, most other text adventure games do. Also there is no mode to speed up or slow down the interaction.

Developer Response ,

Hello Cheddarnut,
thanks for your feedback. We will look into the translation again, thanks for pointing this out.
Since the latest update, you can now skip all the waits (if you want to). It would be awesome if you could update your review :)
Kind regards,
