I have stumbled across an app called “Seen” which is an IF texting app. The app also allows users to make their own games for others to play. I’ve actually been considering writing something for the app to go with season two where you can have a text exchange with one of the characters (probably to enhance a mission with extra facts etc nothing game breaking though) but I wonder whether people would actually be interested in something like that.
Another possible use is let me use another game for example Zombie Exodus Safe Haven perhaps the MC can find a phone with messages on in the game it just says it’s between two survivors and continue what if there was a game in this Seen app which lets you see what those messages would be.
It’s more about world building outside the players actions in the main game. But what’s the general consensus on the. Concept of companion apps.
