You might wanna add that this game is currently only playable if you're in the USA or Canada to this page too. I didn't see it on your website until after I purchased the game.

Good point, added that. There are some free US texting apps that I know other people have had luck with. If you can't get that working I can give you a refund (email contact@subtextgame.com).

Oh, I'm gonna look into that. 

Either way you can keep the money. I'm happy to support a game dev who creates something this innovative.

This is amazing.my night just got that much better!!!!

Here is part 1 of this fantastic ARG. I really enjoyed everything so far. A bit difficult to record but otherwise a great experiance so far.

That was a fun experience! I think playing it on a computer in a short period of time does take away from it tho. I think playing it over two or three days with messages coming when you don't expect them probably makes it more immersive.

But the way you set it up made it pretty easy for recording (except that night thing :) ) and it would have been troublesome to record it under "normal" play conditions.

Wow, thanks for the video! It's really cool to get to see how people react as they play it. Glad you found the easter egg with the website at the end.

Don't trust anyone!

Subtext is a relatively short game, but it packs in a lot of clever ideas--about AI, trust, psychological manipulation--and some jaw-dropping twists.  I highly recommend it, including the "Extended Contact"!
