Christmas Update - BEGIN +, Subtitles and SALE!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

In case you didn't know, SIMULACRA is having a 30% discount in conjunction with Steam's winter sale. With that, we also included some quality of life improvements of the game.

After completing the game for the very first time, you have to play the game again in "BEGIN + " mode. It will dramatically increase the text speed for a quicker playthrough to get the multiple endings. Of course, this is not recommended if you still prefer the complete immersive experience

We messed up on this one. While SIMULACRA is mostly a text-based game, we do have FMV and voice messages scattered throughout. We checked the "subtitles" box without considering that players with hearing impairments will miss out these specific contents. We have since corrected this and enable an option to turn on subtitles. Just go to the HELP section in the Main Menu and turn it on. We want as many people to enjoy this game and hope that this feature will make that easier.

That's all for this year. For more news on the game, you know where to find us :)

About This Game

From the creators of Sara is Missing, SIMULACRA is a spiritual sequel to the highly acclaimed "found phone" horror game.

You found the lost phone of a woman named Anna. In it, you see a desperate cry for help in the form of a video message. The phone behaves strangely as you dive deeper into it. You talk to her friends and they have no idea where she is. Her texts, emails and photo gallery provides fragments of information. It's up to you to piece it together.

Recover lost files, piece back corrupted data, and retrace her final steps. Find her before it's too late.

SIMULACRA is an immersive narrative thriller using the interface of a mobile phone. Like all phones, you have messages, emails, gallery and all kinds of apps to look through. With a strong focus on realism, the game's characters are played by live actors and shot at real locations. Dive into Anna's life as you look at her private photos, go through her dating app or view her personal video logs.
