Just played this game not too long ago on my YT channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkLh8yTxGV0Gw7FzdEAITlwVkmk6Ao5JG And I enjoyed this a lot, loved the story and the concept a lot :)
Sara is Missing
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Android
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.
- 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.
- Minor content updates and dialog changes
- Fixed black screen issue on certain graphic cards
- Allow bug reporting for Mac and Windows
NOTICE: The game may not work on some Galaxy Tab devices. We are aware of this issue and are working on a fix soon.

played Sara is missing on my phone for a more realistic gameplay. However the end conversation with Irizu & having to choose between 2, he gives you 10 seconds, yet I didn't choose within this time frame & it picked for me, now It isn't progressing any further so I don't know if the game is over or if there's something else I need to do, I cannot go back, reply etc. I'm stuck. Am I missing something? BTW its a great game. Very much enjoyed. 😊
finished it on my phone,great but short game
Hello, I really like this game, but I noticed that there' no german version of this. If you're interested I would like to offer you a german translation without any payment and voluntary.
once i played the red room video the screen was flipped and the game became unresponsive so i had to close it, when i try opening it again it doesnt launch, please help!
I played this game awhile ago but forgot to post it here because im a dummy :P But I truly enjoyed this game!!! One of my favourites that I had played in 2017!! Keep up the awesome work! (I hope to play Simulacra sometime too!)
i have yet to play sara is missing & i plan on doing just that. if you have not yet tried Simulacra, it is a great game and extremely creepy on a psychological level. dont think i ever had been so terrified at one stupid thing that i didn't expect to the point where i didn't want to move from my chair LOL took me a good 10 minutes to continue the game.. def pick up simulacra!! highly recommenced and dont rush it either, you'll want the full effect of all it has to offer :) I hear "Sara is missing" is very similar to Simulacra. so im highly interested in this one
finally got around to playing this. Was... interesting.
Just finished Simulacra, and got one of the apparent FOUR endings! Guess I'm gonna have to play again! You guys did a STELLAR job on this one - definitely make more! I am in love with this genre of game right now! Lost phone horror games... who knew!
Here is my part 2 of Simulacra! I really hope you make a 3rd game... I'm enjoying the 2nd so much!
I just started playing the sequel to #SaraIsMissing and let me tell you, it is EVEN BETTER!!! Check out Simulacra, the next best thing in interactive phone horror games.
is it possible to integrate other languages? For example German? : D (Please excuse my bad english) The game is awesome!
Amazing game! Actually one of the much more interesting horror indie games I've ever played!
I LOVED this. I was not expecting such a seemingly simple game to be so good! Excellent job! 5/5!
Very well made game, loved every second of it, and the idea of an smart phone assistant going haywire was cool.
Amazing work on this fantastic game! I had a lot of fun and thought it was very very good! Overall good job on the jumpscares and interesting plot to the story. 100/100!!!
very good game. good concept, clean programming.
thanks for your hard work
hey, i have 3 questions for the creator:
1. How many endings are in this game?
2.Can we call someone by the Phone?
3.If yes, can i call 666?
I think you can call 233333or911.If you are a chinese people.You must call 110【yao yao ling.】at first...
I really liked the concept of the game wish there was more.
so more crazy game
Excellently done, very nice visuals and very realistic. Good stuff all round, nice job.
Hi, it's appear to be really fun !
Is it possible to store all dialogues in a file (i don't know like resource file) and let us translate to our language. Maybe something like dialogue-en.txt and i'll create dialogue-fr.txt. I don't know.
I'm french and my girlfriend want to play it. But she has really poor english.
I know my request is weird, but if it's possible i'll enjoy to translate your game for free.
Best regards and as i see, great job !
Hi! I have the latest version of windows and I tried to play this game, but the entire time I couldn't see my mouse so as a result I couldn't navigate the game. Did anybody else have this problem?
What's up everyone? My name is Slester, so i liked the concept of the game it is very unique. Here is my gameplay i hope you guys will enjoy it!
Hi! This game is a really cool game! I like the concept of the game and really makes me scared oh why... and I made a video on youtube in INDONESIAN! Check it out! TERIMA KASIH!
Was pretty scary, works in Wine Linux. I like how there's multiple endings. Nice job.
Oh my goodness this game was so much scarier than I thought it was going to be. I didn't see a lot of things coming and my heart is racing. This was a great game and an awesome experiance.
What a wild ride. Interesting gameplay, reminded me of that Mr. Robot game TellTale released for mobile.
Immersive alternate reality game! My only gripe is that the final choice is worded poorly such that it's unclear what the result will be. Great graphics and interface, gripping mystery story.
Thanks for that nice game. I have uploaded a German LP over here:
This was one of the creepiest games I've ever played! Throughout the game, it gave me chills down my spine and gave me a little scares! I don't know if I chose the correct choices but oh well, it's still an amazing game.
Hope to see more added to this game! I will definitely revisit this game to find more secrets deep within the game.
*Commented on both itch.io and Gamejolt
Another video about this game. Was an amazing trip to the life and misery of others.
Amazing game. Has good storytelling and it's pretty creepy. Would love to see more!
THE EPIC CONCLUSION
THAT WAS SO FREAKY!!! I LOVED IT!!!
what have i gotten myself into
This was awesome!
Haven't finished playing yet, but this is an amazing amount of personal detail put into a free FMV game. I'm impressed. (Is Videodrome an inspiration?)
I don't want to sound rude, because you guys seriously have a great idea on your hands here.
But this game is really, REALLY bad.
This is the beginning of a great game, but it ends so abruptly and quickly that it was ultimately unsatisfying. Like, there's almost no story here. Mysteries and puzzles are set up and completely dropped, like the e-mail James sends you. Nothing ends up happening with that! What? Have you ever heard of Chekhov's Gun? It's brought up that this might all be related to a deep-web site where you can watch livestreams of people killed. Cool idea, that once again is not explored at all. Sara's neo-pagan friend and the significance of Walpurgisnacht? Never touched. Buddy the Creepy Dick-pic Soliciting Friend? Never touched. What this game amounts to is shuffling through some text messages and e-mails, making two choices and the game unceremoniously dumps you into a nonsensical ending where you are berated by your phone's Siri knock-off for no reason. I finished this in under an hour. That is simply not enough. This game is all set-up and no follow-through. I paid nothing for this and I still feel ripped off.
People, don't waste your time on this.
The game isn't finished. What you played isn't much more than a demo for the finished game. When it will be finished, idk, but this isn't the full game. That's why things seem unfinished. Because they are.
