I think this game was actually developed by the team behind Papa Sangre.

Heard of Papa Sangre but had no idea what it was until it was brought up here and I checked it out. This seems like a crazy awesome experience, but now I realize they're both so similar. Which would you guys recommend more, Papa Sangre or this?

Sounds good, thank you! Any estimates how long the total playing time is? I'd imagine there's not much replay value, once you're through?

Now playing: PvZ2, Alphabear, Ascension, Kami
Waiting for: Lara Croft Go, Love you to bits, Lumino City, Onirim

Anyone have an answer? Also, kinda sucks that UK got it free but internationally it's five bucks

I saw this and was intrigued that Cumberbatch is the voice in it. What you guys think about it so far?

I completed this game when it was released free in the UK about 2 years ago. Really good audio game. Get the lights off and turn your headphones up! It's not a very long game but fun while it lasts if you like to be fully immersed.

You'll get through it in an hour if you don't slip up too much. It's a great experience, although I'm not sure I'd pay that price for it. I believe it was a free game originally because it was a promotion for chewing gum (or similar) so I'm not sure how they can justify selling it now.

I'm wondering if Papa Sangre will drop now they have a second one in the pipeline. I avoided it because of reports of engine crashes, but this release of Nightjar is far more stable on my Touch 4G. It used to crash on level ten but now it just hangs between levels occasionally and allows progress after a restart.

I bought the game yesterday (missed the sale by some hours) and I'm IMMENSELY enjoying it.
I feel like a blind Ripley on the Nostromo...I'm in chapter 9 now and I had a real blast.

Are there any similar experiences in the AppStore?
I do not like the Papa Sangre setting, so I unfortunately ruled it out.
