You found a phone belonging to a missing person. What would you do?

Sara has disappeared under mysterious circumstances, and your only lead is her mobile phone.

Search for clues by investigating Sara's personal messages, notes, emails, pictures and videos while trying to piece together her final days. Unlock password protected files, uncover hidden messages and decrypt lost data and figure out where she went, what she did, and how someone can disappear without a trace so suddenly.


About the game:

Experience first hand a found footage style mobile game. Sara is Missing (SIM) is all about the horrors of mobile technology and touches upon the voyeuristic pleasure that one gets from prying through another person's personal items. We store so much information about ourselves on our mobile devices that deducing what we really are like in real life becomes as simple as tapping on a screen.


Features:

  • Multiple choices will lead to multiple outcomes and endings.
  • Chat with different people at the same time.
  • Receive phone calls from NPCs and other mysterious callers.
  • Hidden sub plots and extra information to unlock.
  • Receive videos and photos from other NPCs.
  • Simulated mobile phone helper, providing hints.
  • Utilizing a similar typing mechanic as popular messaging apps.

It Samsung Galaxy S7 and Note 7 does work in this game?

How did u make the vids and pics?

THIS GAME, so the coordinates go to a real place?

Hey Guys! I made a video to support this awesome game!

More people need to play this!



Come check it out!

leave a like if you enjoy it!

and maybe even subscribe ;)

It's definitely interesting I haven't been able to get any other endings yet I'll take to YouTube to see the rest of the game. the music is really chill and fits the game well!

played through this once, so far, and loved it. Short, but satisfying, and will definitely be diving in again.

I just uploaded a playthrough of this game. Thank you for making this! There was actually a lot of nostalgia for me because of it. :)

Very much enjoyed this one! Probably will return to it for a second go and a different ending! :D

My Game won't launch it just shows the loading symbol then it goes away, it worked once but when I went to relaunch it, it won't work, I tried reinstalling, updating Java, redownloading and reinstalling, but nothing works.

I have the same problem here :'(

I've been having the same problem! Got it to work once then nope...

Hi, sorry you are having problems running the game. Can you share what device are you using? CPU, OS, and graphics card?

i3 2310m / windows 7 / HD graphics (so basically a potato quality laptop)

Almost wet myslef and there were people watching on stream and thhey almost wet myself when I was almost wetting myself. Great fucking creepy experience. Thank you.

Really cool game but I want a real ending. Are we gonna be getting one?

thank you for ruining it for everyone else

(Edited 1 time)

Not sure how I ruined it. But sorry not my intention i was just asking a question. If you want to avoid spoilers (though I don't think this is one) I recommend avoiding the comments. But again sorry :)

I am so confused.. the ending sucked.

That Marble Hornets clip, Respect fam :D

There's no a real ending... So, that's just the first part?

pls post link to first creepy video in game

(Edited 1 time)

This game is pretty awesome thus far. Is sara actualy a real person? The conversations also felt SOOO real!



i played the entire game and the end was really confusing, can someone please help me out.

there's isn't a real ending. Maybe a more long version of this game is in development, i hope. Because there's a lot of possibilities to expand this game

This

I noticed when I looked it up and the guy will be back in march of 2017 to finish the game if I'm correct

now the game crashes and is apparently not compatible with my screen resolution.

it tells me to put it at 1600x900@60hz yet when i check the resolution thats what it already is

There wasn't really much to this game, and the "creepy videos" are unfortunately not scary and are of quite old a meme which was way over done. It would have been nice to see more text with in depth answers as it was quite lacking. Over all, it's worth a dollar for there being actors and a nice single track involved. Otherwise it's just like any other "scary" game out there. A dime a dozen. It has potential however given that it's using a well established idea but on a smartphone instead. 5/10.
