Description of App

Appstore description:
One last glimpse at her apartment, then the heavy door clicks shut.
With a smile on her face, she is sitting in the cab ready to head for the airport.
A familiar feeling of excitement starts to spread in her stomach.

Things are getting strange
An older guy approached me in the check-in line
talking some weird stuff about my father
He pretends to know him

2017/06/20 Location: NYC Time: 15:17
This is insane
I was never meant to leave for Anna
It was all made up
I got instructions and only by following the rules
of their secret plan I will be able to see my Dad ever again

2017/06/20 Location: Unknown Time: Unknown
Must have fallen asleep
Can’t remember anything
Edwards says we are already there
I feel strange but somehow relieved

2017/06/20 Location: Unknown Time: Unknown
Something is wrong
They keep asking questions and
want to take a traditional saliva sample
Edwards trying to calm down situation

2017/06/20 Location: Unknown Time: Unknown
What the hell?
Edwards knocked them all down and told me to run
I feel like a criminal
Where’s Dad?

2017/06/20 Location: Unknown Time: Unknown
Alarms are on
Sneaking outside, then north
No one takes notice
Need to find a red building

2017/06/20 Location: Unknown Time: Unknown
Why have you done that to me?
I can’t see …I can’t breathe … and that stench
It doesn’t make sense
Why can’t we just leave?

2017/06/20 Location: Unknown Time: Unknown
Are you still there?
Please respond to me
I’m hiding in the woods … it’s so silent
…and it’s getting dark
I’m scared
Please locate me and send someone to pick me up
I don’t want to stay here overnight!

2017/06/20 Location: Unknown Time: Unknown
Don’t leave me here, I beg you
Please, help me

2017/06/20 Location: Unknown Time: Unknown
ANYONE receiving me?

2017/06/20 Location: Unknown Time: Unknown
red building
12 miles from the airport in the woods

This looks awesome. I have contacted the devs. Will see tomorrow if I can get a pair of eyes and see what the screen is. maybe I can tap somewhere to get the story started. Thanks for posting.

I hope they make this game accessible.

You can get around the screen if you turn voiceover off but it is not very playable as you use choices to continue the storie and that isn't a thing we can see without voiceover.

When I click with like nothing happens. The App Store comes up and it shows in progress and loading. I have tried looking at other apps and this is the only one that has given me this problem when trying to open it and view the App Store. Thank you.

I've played quite a bit of the released chapter so far and it's quite fantastic. Definetly a game that can be made accessible with some work. See my comments on the accessibility topic linked above for details on my thoughts. This is certainly one to watch for.

Hey, any update on this game as far as accessibility goes?

Submitted by Justin on Saturday, January 27, 2018

Nope, nothing yet. Art or someone will post when we find out more. As of right now, nothing yet.

Submitted by Ray Rucker on Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Submitted by Justin on Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Not yet. Art, the dev will let us know if there is something. But right now, haven't heard anything yet.
