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.
Dang bro. This game gave me some serious chills. The moment the deep web was mentioned, and with cyber-supernatural events being integrated into it, the story meshes out into a narrative adventure worth taking. Multiple endings is a plus, ad the story can be taken at the pace you want.
I love this game... in theory. It's such a cool concept especially when you play it on a phone. There is so much to look at, there were so many possibilities. So when I got to the endings.. the game felt flat (note... multiple does not mean what they think it does). I wasn't dissapointed I played this, I'm just dissapointed there wasn't more.
This game was really a missed opportunity. I would have liked to see them expand on the game, and let us use all the phone's functions. I wanted to know more about Sara and her relationships and friends. There was SO MUCH there this feels more like the first episode of something rather than a full game. It felt rushed. What was the point of ISIS rather than to give us in game hints? Why are we left with so many unanswered questions?
is there a way i can restart the game? i played a little but then i realized i should record for my channel. someone pls help
I THOUGHT IT SAID SAVE AT THE END I MISREAD IT AND KILLED SARA IM SUCH AN IDIOT. BUT I STILL LOVE THIS GAME :P
It was great up until the very end.
If I saved Sara, then why did Iris say the exact same thing for when I saved Faith instead?
Still a great horror game though. 8.5/10.
I have the phone version and it was great just to let you know
i have a problem, it was running fine at first but then i close it in the middle of the game and when i trying to run it again it wont open, i've try to run as administrator as well pls help i really want to finnish this game
i was not scared good details and stuff but now I feel empty
The game is best on Android or iOS as it feels more realistic. I really recommend it!
Just finished playing, sooooo creeped out. But... what were the coordinates that Irizu sends at the end?
Very cool game!!
I played this game hoping to be scared, and quite honestly I feel more empty than scared. GREAT GAME
Also, I got so into the story I messed up my ending.
This game already plays on my fears, Human interaction and phones, so I headed into the game already expecting something scary,
at first I thought this would be I found Sara's phone and needed to negotiate with a kidnapper, which was true to a point... but we wont go into that yet.
Sara is in college studying parasience and paranormal activity as it fits into modern day life, which is actually pretty fascinating! but as she delves deeper she is gotten into danger.
this game was awesome, I got the bad ending as in, I killed Sara because I was unclear if the name I choose was the one to live or die, however this game is to have multiple endings so I will be playing the other endings as well,
no real complaints to the game, it was awesome, I would have liked to see more depth into the character and her studies. maybe even more scares, although I cant really give a full opinion until I play all the endings, so I will play these endings and then write a more complete review,
8/10 thus far though
Not a bad game, gets real creepy towards the end. If you want a playthrough with my honest feelings about it, and some comical relief, check out my gameplay
This game is unique and very very terrifying. I nearly pissed myself when I played this game.
Here's my playthrough of the game. Excuse the bad commentating. It's the first video I recorded with facecam. On top of that, I'm also terrified lol

Does this game have any other ending??? I get given the coordinates then it ends...feeling a bit ripped off.
I'd love to play this game, but I only have Windows 10, 32-bit on my Laptop. Would it be possible to make a Windows 32-bit version and upload it here as well?
this is such a great horror game it would be even better if it contiunes and you dont die and you join the group I mean interested
Let me just say that this game actually started to freak me out so bad that i was peering over my shoulder until i had to pause the game and head back into reality. After that It was hard to re-submerge myself.
I enjoyed this game, but it realy need a lot of work.
The e-mail from James includes some signals, but it proved to be useless. There is no useful clues in the Notes. And the gallery cannot give me more clues. only one picture lead to a strange persom.
And when I talked with Irizu, i think oh the game start. it turns out that it is the end of the whole game.
well, l am looking forward to the update of it.
I slightly agree I would like to see them continue it I feel dying was an upsetting ending I did it twice to see what would happen if I chose other answers and the group if we did i would like to see what happen so pleasr update it I had fun playi
There are a few ups and downs but still an awesome game and worth playing
Really liked the concept. Sure, I'd like a bit more freedom and to be able to make more choices (and for them to alter the outcome). However, I loved playing Sara Is Missing and it left me wanting more! Thanks Monsoon Lab :D
SPOILERS, but you might not mind the spoilers if you don't feel like wasting your time with a half-baked game.
The game is a result of a singular lack of knowledge of what a game is. This is not a game where you make choices and the outcome of the game is affected by them, this is a story that you are taken by the hand and walked through like a child, step by step, until you reach the one conclusion that the game allows. You are only given the illusion of choice. You can't call or text people to gather information or let them know you have Sara's phone, but you can reply to the TWO people that text you, on a few conditions: You can only reply when the game says you can reply; You can only say what the assistant AI, "Iris", wants you to say (which is just "Siri" backwards, very unoriginal); You can't message someone who is "Offline", but they can message you. You can also answer calls, but you only get called by one person, twice, and you HAVE to answer, otherwise they call literally infinitely until you pick up, and they just breathe a lot and text you, then call you AGAIN, then text you, and then they die. Oh, but you can keep them from dying if you send someone a link to a video where they die soon after watching it-- just like The Ring, except, the villain "Irizu" kills that person whether or not you send the link. And then, you have to choose who the villain kills next, Sara or Faith, and he gives you ten seconds to make the choice. Whatever you choose doesn't matter here, either, because if you choose Faith he kills Faith, and you get shamed into feeling like a sick individual for choosing who dies, like you're playing god. If you don't make a choice at all, Iris texts FOR you and demands that Faith dies, so she dies, and Iris shames your indecision. If you choose Sara, then Sara does die, and Iris is angry, but you get the EXACT SAME ending dialogue no matter what: With Iris saying that you won't make it much longer, and that you've become a part of something bigger. It sounds like Irizu was playing the role of Iris the whole time, but it's not like it matters because the choices you make in the game affect only ONE thing-- how Iris responds in dialogue after you make the choice. That's it.
And one more thing-- the game isn't legitimately scary in any way. It does contain pictures of light gore, A LOT of wrong information on Wiccan history and practice, and two videos which are full of garbled noise and clips from other videos. The videos may cause some jump scares, but we don't jump from jump scares because we're frightened (because there was no suspense), we jump because we were surprised that there was suddenly a loud noise and a flash of black and red.
Overall a poorly conceptualized, poorly executed, poorly written game that I am just GLAD I chose not to pay for.
this game needs alot of work. I don't know If you asked permission to use those videos or pictures but you could get sued for that. The game felt very one sided and the ai was way to human lime that izu person was cont rolling the ai all along. And do your research on the pagan religon. Roman catholic church made pagans into horn person doesn't mean they ever were. Do your history reasearch. The game felt way to not real. The story was very cleche, and not scary. Jump scares don't equal out to scary. This game could be better if it set the mood much better.
I had a little ploblem . I can open the game at first time but after I close it . I can't open again T_T . I use window 7 64bit. is someone know how to fix this problem ?
Can you developers please make an option to run the game on Windowed Mode?
This is a waste of time, some dumbass actuallly spent time and money to make this garbage. Its not even a game, you just text some jackass. Fuck you if you paid for this
One of the most unique games I've played. Bravo! Left me wanting more.
Pretty cool! 9/10
hey checkout my gameplay. subs if you enjoyed watching me scream
man!! This game is amazing, I just want to see more about this 😏
