NoStranger is not a game, it's a conversation.
As the app opens, you receive a message from a stranger.
But by the end of your experience, you will know his name, his motivation, and his dark secret.

You will be led on a user-choice-driven narrative; searching through blogs, contacting the story’s characters, and scouring social media websites to find out more. Through real-time conversation, you will delve deep, and sometimes not so deep ;), exploring the interconnectedness of our virtual world.

With inspiration from titles such as LifeLine and Her Story,
​NoStranger uses real websites, phone numbers, and videos to create a believable, immersive experience.

Trigger Warnings: This narrative includes topics of suicide and violence.

One of the best games I’ve ever played

This game is great it’s so many things in one game it has many puzzles and you can bond and gain trust with the stranger your texting to or you can not the most amazing thing about this game is how it combines the real world and the games world making him the person your talking to feel real every time something weird would happen it would send shivers down my back and even though this is the most amazing part of the game the best part of the game is probably how you can be yourself in this game you can relate with the games main character and you can gain emotions for the game and especially the stranger after playing this game I and you will probably realize why it is called no stranger.

Mysterious and amazing!!

I just started playing the game today. You know a game is good, when you stop playing in the middle of it just to write a review. The few minutes I was playing I was already intrigued and full of wonders and questions. I’m curious of how it’s going to end and I have a feeling it is not going to be disappointing!! This is a game I would definitely recommend to people who like interactive games like this. I’m a sucker for these types of games and there’s honestly not a lot of games that are like this. Thank you for giving me this experience!

Time, riddles, questions

I had to use a guide for most of the game but I somehow can’t get past the beginning of chapter 3. After about half an hour I gave up since the answer I needed to give an answer from an email(the guides also said exactly what I put in) so I gave up.
Time is another thing, whenever I get invested Into the game I have to wait hours so I can play again, and sometimes it happens at night. I just wanted smooth gameplay. I know it’s to hook players but it is just an annoyance to me(and my dad who was also playing with me) I’m not sure if it was intentional or not, but the ad button doesn’t work so I have to wait.
Riddles, I had to use a guide and I somehow didn’t have any hint money to use.(forgot what they are called) and I didn’t want to spend money on buying any.
Questions, I felt really awkward with being bombarded with ‘what’s your age’ and ‘where do you live’. I didn’t answer truthfully but it did catch me off guard for sure.
Thankfully I had some friends that actually finished it(and people I asked online) and it was a good story from what they could tell me. So congrats for that!
3/5 hats though overall
