    Just want to say, thank you so much for writing this!

    It's knowing that people are getting some enjoyment from our games that make us want to continue making them. Do they make lots of money? No, not at all. Do they make enough for a living? Depends on the day of the week. But do we enjoy making them? Yes!

    So again, thank you so much for playing the game and for taking the time to write this ( and for feeling this way in the first place! )

    I honestly don't think that Metalcasket could have said if better, and it is evident that this game is a labour of love. The puzzles are tricky, and I admit that I have resorted to using the hint function more than once.

    I hate to complain about anything, but the only beef that I have is the backup that it does at totally random times, interrupting what one is doing. It always seems to pop up at the worst times. Also, I honestly don't know if this feature even works since the "data loaded" always stays at zero, and I have to exit the game to get the backup feature to go away. I'm wondering how necessary this feature is, and whether it can be disabled?

    Other than that, a most enjoyable game.

    Thank you for saying so!

    It seems there is an issue with the Backups when photos are included, luckily this can be disabled, as well as the backups themselves and their frequency, via Settings > Backups.

    You can then do manual backups at anytime if you want.

    In the next update backups will be disabled by default just to make it less annoying.

    That's awesome! We try to make sure as many devices as possible can play but without being able to afford every device under the sun ourselves ( don't even get me started on android devices ) it's hard to be sure.

    Thank you, hope you like it!

    Well, I finished the game, and it was a most enjoyable experience. It actually ended a bit quicker than I expected.

    I was curious, though, as to whether there was supposed to be a chapter 5, 6, or 7? When I played it, it went straight from chapter 4 to chapter 8. I hope that I didn’t miss anything.

    I just finished the game yesterday and I got to say GlitchGames did it again. They made another fantastic immersive point and click puzzle game that makes you ponder. I’ve played all their Forever Lost games and this one lands right up next to them with great new improvements. The story was interesting The new Photo management options had a nice clean ui that made it easier to manage photo clues on screen. The new photo snap animation was nice. Also Adjusting the photos size and rotation by pinching was a nice touch. Visuals are clean vibrant with nice animations. Puzzles are challenging. Musics and ambient sounds are perfect. All and all this game would make a great addition to your GlitchGame collection. Thank you devs for you all you hard work putting this game together.


    Crit:

    One thing I notice was this white flash on screen once in awhile. I noticed it when I was in the ending chapters. Not sure if it was intentional for part of the sim chapter or a bug.

    Have reached chapter 3 now and it seems the best Glitch game yet.
    I love the music references thrown in - I’ve found Bowie and numerous Pink Floyd lyrics so far. Anyone found any others?
