I find myself conflicted. On one hand, A Normal Lost Phone is an important work in the vein of Gone Home that sheds light on an experience too often ignored in media. On the other, the game suffers to convince me that the people I become involved in are real. The text feels too formal, the gameplay too linear, the environmental detail too sparse. The overall effect is that the game felt more educational than empathetic (which can be admirable in its own right but is awkward here). While I still think this is a must play for anyone with a phone, I wish it were so much more.
Such a unique game with such a great story line. I loved discovering all the little secrets just a little bit at a time. I love how nearly everything you have access to in the phone serves some kind of purpose. I highly recommend everyone gives this game a try.
I liked this a lot. The calculator stumped me, had to cheat for that, but otherwise an interesting, informative and worthwhile game :)
I like the idea of this game, and the story too, but it's really short! I wish there was more you could do, maybe interact with people through messages
This game was amazing! It had an awesome concept and storyline, I feel like everyone would benefit from playing this game! It turned out to be very educational in a enjoyable and relatable way! I would love to see more games like this!
A bit on the short side, but really well composed.
The Secret of the Lost Manor is a new Point and Click game. Are you ready?
