The story is worth telling. People who don't know about the situations or difficulties faced will learn something. People going through it will see they aren't alone in that journey. People who have finished that travel will identify with the trip. The writing is a bit stiff and overly formal considering the circumstances of the conversations and the medium they're held in but the story is worth telling. The way it is told feels more personal than a lot of narratives told in other mediums. I can't suggest you play this, but I can suggest you experience it.
Ugly, short, unoptimized, and boring. The type of games that mistake progressive topics for interesting ones simply because they're progressive. Think Gone Home, but without any interaction with the house. I'm not making a moral judgement call, I just thought it wasn't well executed.
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.
This game was one of the best games I have played in a while the story is AMAZING it caused me to break out into tears because of how relatable it was i am defenetly going to suggest this game to everybody I know!!!
I thought it had just enough buildup so when the big plot twist happens you have that satisfying "ah ha" moment. It be occupied me for quite some time today. I only wish there was a reason to replay it.
