Yay it’s finally on iOS

Loving this so far, it’s beautifully creepy. So glad that I can finally play this on my lap and take it with me wherever I go.

I just think that the graphics can be improved. It’s pretty scaled down from the PC version, and there are some bugs as well. Other than that, the game is great!

Lots of promise, but the first release is buggy

I made the mistake of going through the settings while playing and the game was bizarrely corrupt upon return with rooms being not enterable as it seems the game lost most of its layer context. Also things like tables and the piano were invisible but the things that were on them were still there in mid air. Later in the game I made an attempt to save it, but hitting continue just threw me back to the beginning. If you play it, try to do it straight through in one sitting. Wait for the first update. Im using last years iPad Pro so it’s not like it’s old hardware. iPad OS 13.1. I’ll update my review once the stability improves.
