Honestly, when I found this game I thought it was going to be an app to help the time past... And my how wrong I was. The story of ADR is great, and makes me feel satisfied hearing commentary. It was a beautiful experience and kept me interested through it all. I cannot thank Amir and Michael enough for creating such a masterpiece. I look forward to playing another game from either of them! Time: 187 minutes Deaths: 3 (?)
This game is brilliantly simple and simply brilliant. There is no way to express the profound level of connection you start to feel while playing this. The simple text based game turns into a enthralling quest to explore the world around you and uncover the mystery of who you are and what is going on. The best part of the game is that you never really lose that sense of wonderment. Your always excited to see what you discover next or what happens just when you think you've figured everything out. I can't recommend this game enough!
I don't usually spend money on casual mobile games, but it was a small amount and the reviews were good so I gave it a go. After the first few minutes of gameplay I became very disheartened. I thought I had been duped into spending money on the dullest game in existence. However, it turned out to be the best investment I've made in a long time. Nearly 300 minutes of gameplay and I enjoyed almost every one of them. Possibly the most unique and intriguing game I've ever played. Looking forward to listening to the rewards you get on completion. Thanks Amir and Michael :)
Deceptively complex. A lackluster story. Overall, it was a nostalgic and imaginative, and required the player to build most of the world in their head. However, the resulting world is quite beautiful and has some things to say. Unfortunately, the message that A Dark Room tries to convey can sometimes get lost in itself; but is entirely rewarding if you were paying attention.
Overall, a really wonderful experience. This is my first time playing a text-based game, and I was pleasantly surprised that the in-game economy and exploration mechanics left me thoroughly engaged. One grievance that I have was that the game ending left me somewhat disappointed. I did not see the twist in the game until I heard the commentary. I was tempted to leave a 4-star review, but I thought that this would deter others from buying this game and experiencing something that is truly wonderful. Keep up the good work developers!
This game's minimalistic design brings the fun of imagining the characters to a game, something that isn't as popular anymore. It's fun to imagine things your own way, rather than being forced to see it in the way the developer does. The darker undertones that develop in the game brought me back time and time again when I first played on iOS. I really liked that the game doesn't coddle and guide you like some other games do. You're left to figure out what you want to do by yourself, just as you would be in real life. I found myself missing this game when I switched to Android devices and was overjoyed when it was finally brought to Android. All in all, thank you Amir and Michael for a fantastic experience.
