The narrative mystery game A Normal Lost Phone will see its full release on iOS, Android and Steam the 26th of January, 2017.
Originally prototyped by the French indie developers Accidental Queens during Global Game Jam 2016, A Normal Lost Phone is a unique story experience centred around finding the titular lost phone, with players invited to discover what happened to its original owner.
Touching on topics including coming of age, homophobia, depression and peer pressure, A Normal Lost Phone is a game deeply rooted in reality. In this narrative mystery game, the players need to discover what happened to Sam, the owner of a phone they just found. Digging for pieces of information scattered among apps, text messages and photo galleries, their investigation will allow them to uncover the mystery surrounding Sam.
The Global Game Jam 2016 prototype of A Normal Lost Phone was well received, showcased at events such as A Maze and Big Indie Pitch in Berlin, and winning the “Best Indie Game” award at Game Connection Europe 2016. After the prototype, additional development saw new puzzles, new apps, more narrative content, localised versions and a graphical overhaul amongst other things. The full release of the game will be priced at €2.99 / $2.99 / £1.99.
