Oh yes, finally!

I expect this to be my next GotY.

Sanuku, please, this time: no video!


edit: omg, it just started to snow here, 5 minutes ago. Not joking. Simogo really knows how to build up tension...

Not much to the companion app there is only 6 things described and no music, I thought there might be some atmospheric spooky music in the background which would have been nice while reading about spirits. The art work is nice and it's ver smooth to use. There is a login section asking for a code I guess you get that in the game. At the moment it does not feel like enough to justify a separate app or even use as a marketing tool?

A hint of music would have really helped to freak you out for the game that's all it needed.

As we find more codes, presumably in game, it will probably show its full potential. Either way, learning more about the stories behind what is going on is worth it IMO and not necessarily a marketing tool as you say. I am guessing also, that maybe within the content written, there may be clues as to what to do in the game since they stated many times that they give virtually no hints as to where to go or what to do. Reading it all now...

I have never heard of such a fantastic campaign. These guys are all class. There's a storm currently brewing in Sydney

I guess we will see how well it integrates when we can get the full game.

I think the idea is that you can have the game and the companion app running on the same device, so that you can jump between them for reference while playing. You wouldn't want music to be playing within both apps at the same time. I'm sure they have thought this through.

And.. here comes the game we've all been waiting for. The suspense is killing me, and the slow ticking of the clock..
