Reviews

“It's one of those rare games that completely stopped me in my tracks.”
Jake Muncy, Wired

“A story game in which you return to a realm time forgot: AOL Instant Messenger.”
Nathan Grayson, Kotaku

“It reminded me both of Digital: A Love Story and Catholic-guilt-simulator Catherine. Which are not bad games to be compared to.”
Brendan Caldwell, Rock Paper Shotgun
