“I hope she’s ok really channeled the mantra of “every frame a painting.” For such a short experience, I took so many screenshots just because of how beautiful the environments were.”
Hey Poor Player

“I think the social media narrative delivery is a brilliant idea, one I hope a bunch of other people have the sense to steal.”
Buried Treasure

“The first-person story focused mystery game is a genre that was born and boomed in the past decade, thanks to such classics as Dear Esther, Gone Home, and Firewatch (…) I Hope She’s Ok is the latest and most promising newcomer to the genre to come along in a long while.”
The Indie Gamer

About This Game

Experience the mystery of midsummer in a traditional lakeside cabin in the heart of Finland, where the long evening gradually turns into dawn without ever visiting the night.

Every year you travel to this beautiful and remote part of the world to visit your oldest friend who lives an isolated life off the grid. Except this year for some reason and without warning, she’s not at home.

As you search for the clues that might help find your friend, things start taking a strange turn. Are you succumbing to cabin fever or could rumours of a mysterious lake creature actually explain her disappearance?

An avid social media user, you post regular photos and updates to your friends and followers. The tone you select for those interactions will go some way to determining whether you come through this experience unscathed.

Developer Commentary

I wanted to create a game inspired by my love of nature and the folklore that surrounds it. Growing up in Finland meant I spent a lot of time swimming in lakes and hearing about the Näkki, a creature used to scare children away from dangerous waters.
I also wanted my game to feel contemporary and more in line with how people behave and interact in 2020. For better or worse we use our phones for almost everything so I wanted that to be a key narrative device.
Finally, in terms of gameplay and general atmosphere, I wanted to create an experience that was suspenseful, relaxing and slightly tongue in cheek.
