New Message is a creepy little low rez Black Mirror inspired first person horror game where you find someone’s cell phone and follow the instructions that are texted to it from a mysterious stranger.
Drawing inspiration from “Shut Up and Dance” from season 3 of Black Mirror, New Message starts with you picking up a phone that a nervous looking guy on a train left on his seat when he exited the carriage. After picking up the phone you start to receive text messages from a mysterious stranger, ordering you to carry out tasks – simple tasks initially (like picking up a package and placing it somewhere), but later things may get a little morally complicated.
Taking around 10 minutes to play through, it’s a very tense little game with a great sense of atmosphere and two possible endings. Will you be a good boy and follow your orders?
