    Does it have a proper ending where you "beat" the game?

  3. Not sure what you mean. I play with my iPad on my lap and type on the keyboard. No reason to hold the iPad in your hands.

    Really liking this so far. It's very unique, and the search mechanic actually works well within the context of this 'game'. It's quite an unnerving work, actually.
    I don't know how long the game is but it seems there are around 170 or so clips to discover.
    There's also a lovely little minigame no-one has mentioned yet, but it's a bucketload of fun!

    I loved Shattered Memories!
    But is there a lot of typing involved? I don't own a tablet, and I'm not a very good typist on the phone (fat thumbs).
     
  8. The whole game is typing and watching. But it's usually just a word or a couple of words at a time, not sentences or paragraphs.

    You probably saw my review go up on the site this morning: http://toucharcade.com/2015/06/24/her-story-review/

    But seriously, if you're on the fence, you need to buy this. It's so different and has so many fantastic moments that you're doing yourself a disservice by not checking this out.

    And be VERY wary of spoilers.

    English subtitles. I think it would be really hard to translate it since the game is about searching the script.

    I just prefer to set the iPad on my desk with the smart case and sit back and enjoy. Not a big deal that gonna keep me away from this masterpiece but an autorotation will be welcome.

    Ok friends, without spoiling much, I'm wondering if this is intentional or an error:
    I do a search query, a handful of clips come up. Two with an identical time stamp only one is about ten minutes ahead but she is wearing completely different clothes and has a musical instrument

    Thanks!

    OMG I literally can't wait to play this! Reminds me of the 90's era of Voyeur/Phantasmagoria style games! Woohoo, time for a trip to ze past!!!
     
  16. I know what you're talking about.
    I'm pretty sure she changed bc she spilled coffee on her earlier outfit.

    I have the feeling I figured everything out. It was a good ride, although with more or less just one big reveal and a few side stories here and there. That reveal came quickly as well. Still trying to find more videos, but no more surprises so far. But I love the atmosphere, the acting, the music... well done and very special little game.

    Orientation. Lack of is annoying

    My cover has a built in flap that only works in one orientation. So this puts the game upside down. Great game but an oversite by the developers. Not had a quality game in awhile that doesn't allow you to flip it if you need to. Hope they fix that quickly. Going to play something else till they do.
