Kentucky Route Zero, Immortality, and Twelve Minutes Android ports have all arrived in the past few days. You can now access all the mysteries, horror and innovative stories on your phone or tablet via Google Play.
You don’t have to buy them, but you must be a Netflix subscriber to get your hands on the ports.
If you’re a fan of narrative games, especially ones that tell unusual stories with an unbeatable atmosphere, and you’ve got Netflix, your only problem this week will be trying to choose which one to try first.
A road less traveled
Kentucky Route Zero is an adventure game that sends you on a truly surreal road trip. You play as truck driver Conway, who must find a mysterious underground road, Route Zero, to make his delivery.
To reach the destination, you must meet strange characters, navigate a landscape that defies navigation and suspend your sense of what is normal.
Immortality is a game from the creators of Her Story that blurs the line between movies and games and doesn’t get in the way of the vintage cinema experience.
The game presents you with a mystery. Marissa Marcel was a promising actress. She appeared in three movies and none of them got released.
After the third film, Marissa disappeared. The movies contain the answers to the mystery, if you can put them back together.
A sense of Déjà Vu
In Twelve Minutes, a man is trapped in time. Imagine Groundhog Day, except he’s constantly replaying the worst night of his life. A detective breaks into his and his wife’s apartment, charges them with murder and kills him.
Is there a way to stop the ever-repeating death spiral? Could be. You don’t have much to work with, but you know what’s coming. There are ways to use your foresight to your advantage and perhaps beat a hopeless situation.
Does it sound too hard for the brain to get out of the time loop on the Twelve Minutes Android port right now?
