** 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

I think it's rare to find games that tear one up and take you away from the outside world, but Device 6 does exactly that! I can not but recommend it to anyone who is considering downloading it! ⭐ ️ ⭐ ️ ⭐ ️ ⭐ ️ ⭐ ️

Simply A masterpiece A simple storyline game with a fantastic story puzzles not too difficult the solutions you can find during the story in short, that say fantastic has a flaw is too short

This game is a small masterpiece. The scenario is strongly inspired by the series "the prisoner", or "Alice in the land of the cold war". We would have liked a little more customization in order to increase the replayability. A pity that no suite (device X) is planned, the Studio is not used to repeat:-(

What an originality for this game that mixes fun and romance! The plot and the puzzles are an intelligence to make smile. Easy to play, you still have to enjoy the detailed sound universe. This concept differs so much from the games that usually make you dumbing. You feel the same pleasure as reading a good book. A big thank you to the developers who awaken us, and which I will become an unconditional!!

Often ebooks are nothing more than digitized Text. In the worst Case pure PDFs. Device 6, however, is a Book that plays with the Medium (iphone) that uses possibilities: The Text does not adhere to classical Forms, but also recreates the World in form, the Atmosphere is skilfully acoustically supported, the whole Extremely stylish and self-regarding, the User is involved. Class! A Little short, but just great and keen to experiment! (Yes, only in English. I'm not bothered, though.)

Unusual Approach, delights Puzzle lovers, Readers and design fans. Very spartan, no Menus, Help or Options, but even that is part of the Story that the Player is in a way at the mercy of the Game. Good English Skills, Paper and Pen and some Combination skills are Prerequisites. Headphones are recommended. Since there is no Help, it may take some Time to understand how Puzzles are solved in this Story. Both the Story and the Amount of Puzzles are manageable. I therefore hope that more will come of this Substance ...
