This was a amazing game. I loved the story, I could imagine it all in my head because of how well written and vivid the writing
was. The ending was just spectacular and I definitely recommend downloading this app if you love/like to read

This interactive story had you thinking outside of reality into the imaginary. Bringing the reader into their world made this a
truly unique experience.

Was definitely a lot better than I thought it woul

Definitely one of my favorite books to read I loved how interactive it was and there was things only you could do in the real
world to move forward in the book and I think that’s incredible definitely look forward to whatever else you guys come up with
thank you for such a great time.

‘Magin If

This application is very interesting, to say the least. It’s not a game, neither a book and neither a puzzle, but a coagulation
of all three in a harmonious sort of way.

Like a book it makes you think, but like a health application it requires you to get up and move around and use your intellect to

PLEASE do more of these!!

I'm only on chapter 4 but I NEED MORE! I'm blown away by the creativity and interactiveness that this game provides! The imagery
is stunning, well thought out, and so wholly intriguing that I find myself getting frustrated that I have to turn it off to go do
adult things 🤣 Seriously, it's THAT good

Most impressive!

The coding is impressive and the puzzles I saw where Genius but I do got to wonder how does it all work? I hope this goes far.

Amazing and Perfect

Everything about this is magnificent. As an avid reader that has been reading for years, I have developed quite the imagination
and this app really gave me some feels. I wasn’t even mad when I had to pay for the full app because they told us in a fun way.

Very immersive and clever

I love everything about the story and how they used different built in phone functions. The only thing that I kinda don’t like
is that the only available pronouns are he/him and she/her.

Top Tier Interactive Fiction

I LOVE puzzle games that take the physical device into account for solves. The narrative is engaging and makes me want more. My
only knock against it is accessibility (if you are physically disabled, you'll need to contact the developer for a workaround to a
puzzle; that's in the FAQ though!).

I love this way of story telling so interactive I only wishes I had more to do with the story but it’s still an amazing

Worth getting full version

I tend not to buy full versions of apps, but I was too interested and I’m so glad I did. This is truly immersive text and it was
so much fun and such a cool ending! I’m so glad I downloaded this and I would recommend to anyone. So so worth it!

I absolutely LOVED this. I want more!! It gets you up and active and honestly helped when I was depressed and didn’t want to get
out of bed. I got attached to the characters and never wanted it to end. I wish it was longer but that’s not a bad thing because

As someone who never got scared while before reading a book I can say it does a awesome job of making the scenes feel real. And

Amazing so far

I just began the story, and from the moment I started reading, I was amazed at how interactive and interesting it is. When I made
it to the part where you had to pay for the whole story, (which I am now waiting to download), I was a bit disappointed, but I do
think this app deserves my money. So wis

Fun, funny, and intriguing

So yes, the story hooks you relatively quickly and makes it worth, in my opinion, what I would never pay for a phone app. I love
the story and I love the interactive features within the story, which are quite clever. I even get a chuckle out of the devs notes
in parts of the story, like asking you t

I mean, 4.99 is kinda a lot to ask for, and adding the request to purchase as part of the actual story I thought was dumb, but
overall it was one interesting experience.

I had this game a while ago, and it was really fun to watch the story progress and actually feel like I was a part of the story as

This was fun

Okay- so this was a fun, immersive book/game. It had a Silent Hill feel to the storyline and effects, though not as terrifying.
I was hesitant to pay $4.99 for a game I can really only play once. But then I reasoned, I pay more for books (granted, I re-read
those several times).

Phenomenal fiction experience.

I hope this app opened a new era of fiction. The writing is great and the experience is excellent. A true adventure in a fiction

I enjoyed it!

Such a different idea and was really entertaining. I don’t understand all the people complaining about paying $5 for the full
version. It’s also clearly stated in the description it’s a preview and the full version is paid. We pay $15+ to see a movie

At first I was extremely upset about having to pay so I just went back to the game, and to my surprise I could turn back a page,
it said it would let me continue without playing. But then I was quite confused. I sent it to seven people and it didn’t work.
Please fix this.

Normally I don’t pay this much for apps. But based on the reviews of other users, I was prepared to do so. Frankly, it was worth
it. The level of imagination and humor that went into this project was worth it. It’s clear the developers had great fun
creating this, and they share the fun with the wor

So I was thinking about games that are kinda cool, and so I eventually ended up on a peculiar app called “Maginary”. Anyways,

highly recommend downloading it if you haven’t

Interesting concept

The sensory elements of the story; sights, sounds, music, were all very cool. Words changed shape and light effects were used to
add layers to the story.
The story itself was a little lame. The characters were not that interesting in this one and the ending was a bit of a letdown.

I downloaded this for my iPad. It turns out there’s a compass puzzle that you have to solve about three puzzles in.
Unfortunately, the compass app isn’t compatible with the iPad so I couldn’t solve the puzzle. Maybe I did something wrong,
maybe it was just designed for phones which is okay. Either

Paying for the game

I don’t like that you have to pay for it. It was at AN AMAZING part and it told me I had to buy it for 4.99. I give it 3 starts
because I love this book so far, and so including it is with you in the story. For example, when I had to point the book the south

Where has this been all my life!

I’m an avid reader. I love this concept. The story was great and the way the animation pulls you in is awesome. However, this is
the only story/book available , it’s only 6 total chapters and they want $4.99 to finish the last 4 chapters (the first 2
chapters are free).
