Dear Mr. Wyatt,

I wish it didn't come to this, but I'm here to implore you to help me.

My daughter Elizabeth, 22, disappeared last tuesday without leaving any trace.She was home the evening before, and was nowhere to be found the next morning. She's very serious, studies at the University, and works 3 nights a week at a local bar. In both cases, nobody noticed anything out of the ordinary these last few weeks.

As far as we know, all of her belongings are still here, including her phone. I think this last part is really important: her phone sustained some sort of damage, apparently overnight, and the data on it seems partially corrupted. It's still usable, but it's... really weird.
I feel like this could help us, but the police won't do anything, and I'm scared to lose any chance at finding her if I give them the phone. I barely dared to look at it, but I'm sure you could find some kind of lead. You're the one who found the Portugal 9 after all!

If you were to take the case, I could give you remote access to the phone. But as I said, it's in a really bad state, and even plugged in, it won't stay on more than a minute. Anyways, I unlocked it and it's constantly in charge, so it should be fine for you to use.

I know it's not much, but please Mr. Wyatt, we really need your help.

Hi, Fachewa here.
Just a small warning: this is a very incomplete project.

I really liked this idea, and I really wanted to see if it worked, but it was also pretty ambitious as something to do in 48h. The game works and all, you can interact with a good number of things, move apps on the home screen (for no reason whatsoever), there are saves, a screenshot display, and a few things to find (and I'm sure a lot of typos).
BUT it's also a mystery game and even a relatively small one is hard to make in 48h so, yeah, don't expect to find real answers, sorry!

I obviously had more ideas of things to put in the game. Basically every app here had a concept, even the "broken" ones, and I had a bunch of other apps ideas. And even more that I knew couldn't make it in the 48h game.

That being said, I'm really curious to see what people think of it!

    Cool idea, very meta!

    This is a cool idea and very ambitious for 48 hours. I do wish there was more to it as I liked having to look through the included files to get things up and running and then exploring the apps on the phone. I liked how the theme was tied to the phone battery as well. But just wish there was more. Playable Snek would've been nice haha. It would be cool to see you continue this though and develop it into something further.

      Yeah, Snek was pretty high on the priority list (I was planning on a small playable thing similar to kuru kuru kururin) but sadly not high enough 😅

      I think I'll definitely try to continue this project to at least get something that feels complete.

    I like the sort of mysterious ARG style thing you were going for here. It's a shame it's so incomplete. I did like the slightly out of the box problem solving required to access the phone at least.

    I think this is a good start to an idea, there is a concept here and I hope it develops in to something but, as you said yourself, very ambitious given the time frame :)

    Took me a few minutes to figure out how to play, but this is an awesome idea. I'd love to see it completed post-jam!

    I couldn't figure out how to play, but loved the writing. I included it in my GM48: Sixty Seconds compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

    This is a SUPER COOL idea - I really would love to see work continue on this! Fit the theme really well, but I certainly wish there were more :)

    It's a cool idea! Definitely needs some work/polish, but I see a lot of promise with this.
