On the Surface is a real-time interactive story exploring the tensions and crunch moments of a group of teenage friends. The choices you make will decide the future of their friendship.
Meet a group of five friends who, like all of us, each have a public and a private side. But when the pressure is on, can they keep up the divide between the person they show the world and the person they really are? What happens when you find out things that make you question if you really know them?
Hema - outgoing athlete, energetic and optimistic
Kalil - out-cast musician with an attitude
Anetta - super-intelligent, sometimes volatile
Jessie - exchange student, brings the humour
Tanya - may not be as perfect as she seems
And a number of unique supporting characters.
Interact through an intuitive messaging app, receiving messages from characters both individually and in group chats as they go through their day. The story unfolds in real time over the course of a week which will change your friendship forever.
Your choices and responses will determine what happens in a dramatic and surprising storyline, as you uncover each character’s story and connect over secrets and shared experiences.
