An odd game about texting.

You can choose when it ends... how far are you willing to go?

The full script contains nearly 350 texts, though you can't see all of them in one playthrough.

NOTE: This is a companion game to NULL, my surreal adventure game!

Controls:

  • Z/C: Look at Phone; Send Message 
  • X: Put Phone Away; Go to Sleep (Hold)
  • Arrow Keys: Choose Message

This was originally released on the PICO-8 website back in June of 2017. It was the first game I'd ever released!

You can still find and play it there: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29501

Really effective use of audio to create tension in the reader. Creepy, and you can just tell there's more under the surface. Awesome job!

Hey, thanks!
My surreal adventure game NULL is actually a companion game to Messages, though to really see the connections you'll need to track down all its secrets.
