What do you know about Sam? Are they a boy, a girl? Are they cheating on their girlfriend? Where did they go on the 18th of January? Where are they now?
One user on Game Jolt commented:
“really hits me like a rock, cried like a baby”
Contrary to my introduction, A Normal Lost Phone is not a murder-mystery. It’s not terribly suspenseful, but it’s ending is very, very real. Even though I am not in Sam’s exact situation, their struggle reminded me of myself. The game is written very well. The end text, supposedly written by the main character, is minimal, to the point, and believable. The only real complaint I have is that, in the cellphone’s contacts, there are so many names that are absolutely pointless. It clutters up a screen that shouldn’t be.

I referred to Samantha during my description as “they” as I wanted her gender to remain ambiguous, as to not spoil the story. I am aware that she is a woman.
