** Winner of Apple Design Award 2014 **

A surreal thriller in which the written word is your map, as well as your narrator.

DEVICE 6 plays with the conventions of games and literature, entwines story with geography and blends puzzle and novella, to draw players into an intriguing mystery of technology and neuroscience.

Anna wakes up in a castle on a remote island, with little recollection of how she got there. All she remembers is an unusually unpleasant doll.

Why are there two identical castles on the island? Who is the mysterious man in the bowler hat? And above all, what is the purpose of the tests Anna is put through?

Read, listen and peek into three-dimensional photographs to solve the bizarre mysteries of DEVICE 6.

"DEVICE 6 is designed to linger in the mind long after the last code has been cracked and the last sentence read. Spy stories - even traditional ones - often haunt their readers' dreams once they've been completed. It's only appropriate, really. Is that a final full-stop or a microdot? Is this the end of the affair or an invitation to go deeper?"
Eurogamer - 9/10

"In using its text both as narrative and as geography – and through its impressively restrained use of illustration and sound – it generates an almost unrivalled sense of place. It isn’t embarrassed to allow Device 6 to be a game when it needs to be, and yet it knows precisely when to let the story take over. The result is a sharp, striking mystery that is at once provocative, extraordinarily stylish and altogether essential"
EDGE - 9/10

"In turning a text adventure into a world map, Simogo has resurrected a long-dead genre with style and confidence. Great presentation and brilliant puzzles complete a stellar package"
Pocketgamer – 9/10

"Ever exceeding expectations, the developer has followed up one of 2013′s highlights with another title that can be classed as such. With a compelling story that keeps you guessing, and a pin-point utilisation of the platform, Device 6 is an accomplishment in games design, mobile or otherwise"
God is a Geek - 9/10

"DEVICE 6 not only explores the boundaries of narrative storytelling, it also demonstrates the creative potential of touchscreen gaming"
Appspy – 5/5

"Simogo’s doing something few others are doing, and it’s wonderful that someone is both providing great experiences and testing the limits of interactive media"
148apps - 5/5

"An ingenious slice of puzzling adventure that's as imaginative as it is stylish"
Modojo - 4.5/5

Comments and Ratings for DEVICE 6

Enthralling, but could've been longer (1.2)
24/03/2017 04:42:11 5/5 By CuriousLights
The story was interesting and easy to read, the puzzles were hard enough that they weren't a breeze, the meta parts were good. My only problem with it is that I finished it within the day I bought it. It would be good to have a few extra chapters to make the game last a bit longer.

Confusing and pointless (1.2)
22/03/2017 20:14:55 3/5 By Drews9700
This is an adventure book, where you solve a few riddles. The riddles are not overly difficult but fun to get to grips with. The story though is not very gripping. I was expecting so much more from the description.

Sequel please!! (1.2)

Very good game, took me a while to get into it. But once I did I was hooked! Year Walk is another great title by this lot.

Unique (1.2)

It's not a freemium piece of junk and it requires you to engage your brain. Stupid people will hate it without doubt. For the rest of us it's a bit marmite. I loved it.

Up it's own bottom. (1.2)

Admittedly the game itself has a reasonably unique premise, good atmosphere aided by it's sound track. But ... want to get straight to playing the game - tough. You have to watch the credits (before play, not after completion). Want to rotate the screen so that the headphone jack is on the left, tough, no dice. Small things like this where the developers treat the players with distain really annoy me and so can't recommend the game on this basis. Even "A dark room" where you'd have though the devs believed they'd written something as culturally important as the next dante's inferno let you play the game before trying to stuff all their pretentious B.S. about the game's development down the player throat.

Good concept that's about it (1.2)
16/12/2016 14:27:00 2/5 By Shotgunvin
Good concept but it's just an interactive book.

Unique and engrossing (1.2)
13/11/2016 09:20:00 5/5 By Irish8542689/}
This type of game is best played without expectations, so I'll keep details to a minimum. It is light on interaction as games go, but there is enough, along with wonderful all-round design, to ensure you never tire of reading its text. It is over quite quickly, but while it lasts it presents an entertaining, engrossing and clever mystery. The few puzzles are well balanced, giving pause for thought, but not unduly halting progress. Overall a unique and very fun experience that's well worth the money.

I am lost for words. (1.2)

An undoubtedly unique and creative game and experience. Had to use a walkthrough for it (as difficult as it was I'm really lazy). I for one certainly found it creepy at times so I wouldn't recommend it for the faint-hearted. I was rather confused at the end but with the perhaps insultingly clear effort put into it, would definitely say it is worth the money. Wouldn't play it again but will not deny that it's good if you want to be mind-boggled.

Advice 6 (Waste of money) (1.2)

Really!!! How did Device 6 get good reviews? Did their staff write them? It's the worst game I've EVER attempted to play. It's amazing that you can't get a refund for something so rubbish

Great scripting and good puzzles to solve. (1.2)

Very enjoyable game and strangely satisfying!
