Absolutely loved it!

The only thing I’d suggest is having the date and length of time update automatically in the story (currently says the year is
2020). Otherwise I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to see what else you release.

This is one of the best games I’ve ever played. I loved all the effects and I found all of them to work just fine on my iPhone
6s. I thought it was really funny how they worked that you were reading the book into the story; it also made it feel more
immersive. Kept me up that night trying to finish

I don’t usually buy the full story for a game. This is generally because the game doesn’t give me a good enough reason to buy
it’s full form. This time was different; I was intrigued by how the book required you to take part, by how it so easily builds
your relationship by the character. For anyone

This/book game is great!!

This game/book thing is so fun! While you do have to pay the 5 dollars, I say it’s worth every penny. There are so many twists
in the story, and animations, I love it. This is my favorite app believe it or not! Also, my apologies, if there are any spelling
mistakes or random letters, it’s because f

Talk about a book come to life!

This is amazing. The actual words and book interact with the story and so do you. It’s quite impressive. If you read at a steady
pace the effects act on que. Haven’t finished it but don’t want it to end

The End

Truly, I felt saddened to have the story end. Although, it will always be in my mind and like the authors said, Michael may follow
me in my dreams. Great story and highly recommend. The free version got me so attached that I bought the full version no
hesitation. Looking forward to future content

Waiting for the download

I’m currently waiting for the full book to download after I purchased it but WOW I can honestly say I have never read a more
interesting first 5 minutes of a book. Maybe I feel bad for Michael but I want to keep reading to help him out. I do hope the 50
hrs left of his time means 50 hrs in real time

The coolest game ever

Too everyone who might think that this game is a waste of money it’s not. 1 you get to go on an amazing adventure 2 you have to
do things in the real world to affect things in the game world and 3 if you get to the end well you’ll see

P.S. Devs you did an amazing job on the game and it’s mechanic

Love it

I enjoyed the first 1&2 chapters, I was in shock that the book knew I was reading, although it is categorized as role playing I
still loved it. The tension grew when I was having problems solving problems and was afraid of losing, but also the music, the
sound effects, using letters and words as pic

I can say without a doubt that this is my favorite game ever, precisely because it is so much more than a game. Sure, it has a
story (a compelling one at that), but if it ended there, it would be like every other game on the market: played and thought of
fondly in its hay-day and forgotten as soon a

Innovative, captivating, awesome!

I didn’t know what to expect from this but wanted something new. Well I got it! This game/book was thoroughly enjoyable! I was
hooked by the end of chapter one and had already decided to buy the full version before the option came up. I completed the game
over two nights, but It was so much fun that

I hate reading I will go to lengths to avoid it but this book is so interactive that it kept me reading!! Please more stories,

Great but uncomfortable

I LOVE this app and it’s so creative and amazing and I have never seen before. The thing is though is that I am a rather
paranoid person so when it asked for my location, camera, and microphone, I did accept not thinking much of it until it appears in
the story. It made me kinda scared, as I also di

I love this book!

It’s so fun to see how interactive it can be! I love how it really gets readers to work with the characters and complete tasks
to continue reading. I only have one concern: the swearing. Maybe you can change the age rating for the app? Other than that, this
app is well worth the $4.99! I will defini

Excellent Experience

This is one of a few interactive books I’ve read and is by far the best. The story was captivating and engaging, and the
graphics were excellent! It was well worth the cost and I’m happy to support the developers. I look forward to the next story!

Omga, this game is amazing. It never fails at introducing twists that keep you on the edge of your seat, or whatever you’re
sitting on. A few difficulty spikes with the puzzles, but they’re worth it.

Great Read!

Such an immersive and great read! Very interesting elements added in to carry the story along and mini challenges/puzzles to
figure out as you go. And the story itself is also just interesting. Only critique is that it seems the pronouns referring to the
reader get off every once in awhile.

I’ve not gotten the chance to play this much so far but I’m already in love with it. The only reason I’m giving it four
stars instead of five is because of the lack of pronoun options at the beginning

This game is soooooo unique! Fantastic, really! It reacts when you shake your phone. It reacts when you open the compass app. It
reacts when you blow into the charging port. Unreal!

one thing to note before downloading or playing is that after a few scenes, it asks you to pay $4.99 to keep playing.

Entertaining interactive metafiction. The animations and sound effects added so much to the reading. The interactive elements were
puzzle-like and satisfying to solve (though relatively easy). I wish the game/book were longer, but the production was top notch

Totally deserves 5 stars but...

After I purchased the full version, my screen went blank. And I restarted the app. Many times. Even tried to restart the chapter.
Now I can’t make the fog disappear like I did the first time.
I was super excited but now worried it won’t fix itself. I’ll edit my review if I’m able to make it work!!

liked it so much, I finished it all in one day. I wish there were more chapters to look forward to! #michael_is_real

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

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).
