Simulacra (Indie Fireside – Ep. 2)

In this month’s Indie Fireside discussion, Vance and friends talk in depth about Simulacra by Kaigan Games. Simulacra is a spiritual successor to the award winning game Sara Is Missing. It is a narrative horror game that takes place entirely on on a mobile phone. Anna, the phone’s owner, left a cryptic message and her friends informs you that she is nowhere to be found. Take it one step further and hijack her dating app, view her private vlogs and stalk with her social media. Let the mystery take you through a plot with branching stories and impactful choices that will lead to multiple endings. Solve recurring text and image puzzles to learn more about Anna’s life and what might have happened to her. The game is best played on mobile, but a PC version is also available.
