    Edit:

    Great clean polished interface.
    Very nice artwork.
    The story is well written so far, although I dont know what is going on. I currently got an urgent case and this woman is babbling on about a dream she had about her neighbor and how the rats are eating the heart.
    The lady is a freakin wacko!

    So far I cant wait to read another page! Be back later.

    Ninievre, thank you sooo much for joining the forums! It is always good to be in touch with talented developers! Now I am very close to clicking the buy app button, but I want to know a few things:

    -Is there any music?
    -Are there always some sort of picture throughout the game, or is it only when special events occur?
    -Is there any ending score according to the paths taken, that way it forces you to replay the game till you get it perfect?
    -Is there any other features in this game that have not been mentioned?

    Thank You in advance!

    Will you have a video of the game soon?
    If someone has a walkthrough and knew what to do in your game.. how long would it take to finish it?

    dice rolls ;) importance of tests for story unwrapping


    -If someone has a walkthrough and knew what to do in your game.. how long would it take to finish it?
    45 min to 1 hour and a half cause even if u have one, u can still fail tests and lose!

    Then your game seems a bit overpriced compared to other games in the store.. any chance of a sale at $2.99?

    I'm afraid I have to cover my dev costs first. After, that's not impossible :)

    I understand.. goodluck with your game. Hope to see more of these type of games.. seems made for the iPhone more than action games.

    fyi, my game development has cost 15,000 USD, with a 8 people team and it took 6 months...

    Good to hear this is a quality game. The app store economics are a bit odd.. you will find over time that there are few people willing to pay $5.99 for an unknown developer's game. Really makes no sense since a movie costs more but aw well.

    Consumers are vested in a movie though with travel time, gas, food, drinks and the atmosphere. I think it is mostly the digital media stigma. A lot of the (digital) apps are considered throwaways after a very short time and thus held at a lesser value than traditional media.

    I dont know how far I am in the story but I played for 45 mins and still have some ways to go I believe.
    The choices in the game are many.
    You must, it seems, manage some sensitive personalities as the story goes on!
    Quite well done.
    I like it.

    OK after playing it another 15 the game got unbelievably confusing and ended abruptly. I really dont know what happened. It was really annoying.:mad:

    I will have to play through it again and see what happens.
