App description: Finn in 1989 is a text-based adventure, soaked in 80's nostalgia. A young boy discovers he's lost in time with only his backpack and his walkie-talkie. Help young Finn make life or death decisions, and unearth the mystery behind his disappearance.

David Cordis (Plants vs Zombies Heroes and Squids From Space) weaves a gripping interactive story of a young boys unsolved disappearance. Help Finn solve the mystery behind his own disappearance by working with the only person who can communicate with him, you.

This story plays out in real time much like the popular Lifeline series. As Finn works to stay alive, notifications deliver new messages throughout your day. Keep up as they come in, or catch up later when youre free.

1989 is a deep, immersive story of survival and friendship, loaded with 1980s pop-culture references. If youre a fan of Stranger Things, Ready Player One, Back to the Future, Dune, or ever stayed up late playing your Nintendo, youll fall in love with this piece of nostalgic interactive fiction.

Just finished it. Honestly I couldnt put it down most of the day. Just like a good book I had to keep coming back and see what happened. If you like lifeline type games, but with a stranger things vibe, you will enjoy this.
