App description: A Normal Lost Phone is a game about exploring the intimacy of an unknown person whose phone was found by the player.

The game takes the shape of a narrative investigation: you have to search the phones text messages, pictures and applications, in order to learn about its former owner. Through this phone, you uncover Sams life, friends, family and relationships, until the evening when they turn 18 and mysteriously disappear.

Features
- An immersive and intuitive way of introducing the narrative through a fake smartphone interface.
- A game that bridges the gap between reality and fiction by letting players act as themselves. The game asks a simple question: if you close the app but still think about the game, have you truly stopped playing?
- A relatable story that helps build empathy with the characters, allowing to explore difficult topics.

I played the original online flash version, and enjoyed it very much. However, if my memory is correct, it was a fairly short experience of about half an hour/45 mins. Not sure if it's been expanded upon here.

Note that this game does deal with the topic of homosexuality, which is one of the focal points of the latter half of the game. If that makes you uncomfortable (although I wouldn't see why), just letting you know.
