A Normal Lost Phone
A downloadable game
A Normal Lost Phone is a game about exploring the intimacy of an unknown person whose phone was found by the player.
Through the interface of a mobile phone, the player must discover what happened to its owner, Sam. Digging through secrets scattered among apps, text messages and photo galleries, the player-voyeur starts witnessing the emotions of Sam, and behind the apparent light-heartedness of a teenage story, their questioning on coming of age, homophobia, depression or the search of oneself.
- An immersive and intuitive way of introducing the narrative through a fake smartphone interface.
- A game that bridges the gap between reality and fiction by letting players act as themselves. The game asks a simple question: if you close the app but still think about the game, have you truly stopped playing?
- A relatable story that helps build empathy with the characters, allowing to explore difficult topics such as identity, gender binarism, individuation and privacy.
"It shares some of the feeling of Her Story, albeit featuring today's technology and with less of a focus on the crime angle. But it has the same small moments of revelation, all of which come together to form a story in its own neat yet meandering way."
Rock Paper Shotgun
"This new phone has a lot to explore, even if you may not see it on the first look. It's a clever way of delivering a narrative, with you discovering more about Sam, the more you investigate the phone. Will you find out what happened to Sam?"
