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.

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.

Chillingly Amazing

NoStranger takes the text-mystery genre to a whole new level. The game (it hardly feels like a game, it's so real) takes users between the app and the real world as they work with their new online 'friend,' and I quickly found myself immersed and invested in my convos with Adam. As I progressed through the story and foraged into the recesses of the internet and Adam's mind, I found my unease steadily growing. The amount of work and creativity put into the game clearly shows- it's even more amazing since it's a free app!
No spoilers here, but the game also left me thinking about how unwittingly we give up our personal information, and how easily one can be emotionally manipulated. All in all, amazing game, and I look forward to more!

Love This!!!!

I really love the concept of the game and the vibe it gives. I love that it really does feel like I’m talking to somebody and even the small details like waiting to talk again is very cool. I loved the riddles and how I had to search the web for certain things. I loved everything about it except the ending because it made me sad but that’s another thing that made it interesting. I really wish there were more games like this because this is awesome. Thank you for making such an amazing game. 5/5⭐️
