Description of App

Suddenly Lost is an interactive adventure novel with a script that is over 40,000 words alone. You will explore many interesting places and have many adventures, all within the wonderful world of the written page.

But that's not all. We all know that adventure stories can be hazardous to your character's health. In Suddenly Lost, we not only acknowledge that fact - we celebrate it! Each time something unfortunate happens to your character, we call that an achievement.

There are over 32 achievements to get in this adventure story, and we challenge you to find them all.

Suddenly Lost uses an autosave mechanism to make sure that you can escape any time you can and pick up where you last left off. And Suddenly Lost supports multitasking features on capable tablets so that you can be productive and adventurous at the same time.

I've been playing this game for a few minutes and I really like it so far. Unfortunately, at first glance the achievements screen just has elements that aren't labeled very well, like achievement.png. a png is an image so if we could just get those images labeled, this would be even better! I'm really liking it so far!

I might be doing something wrong, but it appears that this game is designed (potential spoiler alert) to run in an almost endless loop. I think the game might continue once I find all of the carnival tickets, but I cannot find the last one (blue ticket for the under water adventure). If anyone knows the way out of this loop or where the last ticket is that would be helpful. If I'm not doing something wrong and the game is actually intended to work this way it is rather annoying. It is an interactive story - choose your own adventure style - where you are required to take every possible path before you can move on.

I managed to complete the game and I've not completed the acheivements yet. The story is interesting and I agree it loops you around way too many times. I was able to find the blue carnival ticket.

I am new to the applevis forum so if I am posting in the wrong place please let me know. Is there any way for someone to give me hints regarding finding the blue ticket without spoiling the game for other people? I feel like I have mapped out the available choices and never found the rgiht path to it.

Sometimes it pays to search, explore and dig at certain places more than once.

I had to really dig and explore each option to see what happened next etc. a hint I can give you is to find a compass and explore from there. I don't want to spoil anything else. I'm still trying to get all of the acheivements. Good luck!

I just beet the game and I have to say the ending was a bit anticlimactic. I would of liked to know how you became lost in the first place. I still have 8 more achievements to find so maybe I'll replay it.

Hi. Does anyone know why noone was at the carnival in the game? And why do I go into darkness onstage?
