Flavourworks is bringing its FMV thriller Erica to iOS devices this Friday, almost a year and a half after its original release on PlayStation 4.
It’s an interactive fiction-type game where you guide a young woman named Erica, played by television actress Holly Earl, as she tries to unravel parts of her family’s troubling past. As with most games of this type, you’ll have to make choices at critical junctions in the story which will ultimately affect the outcome of the game.
Erica originally released as a PlayStation 4 exclusive in August 2019, where it picked up a mixed reception. Metacritic gives it an aggregated score of 69/100, with critics saying it has an intriguing story but lacks a lot of depth in the gameplay department. See the trailer above if you want to see for yourself what the game is about.
On the console version of Erica you could play the game with either the DualShock’s touchpad or via the PlayLink mobile app. For the iOS port, Flavourworks has worked hard at converting the game to work well with touch-screen controls.
Co-founded in 2015 by Jack Attridge and Pavle Mihajlovic, Flavourworks is a London-based game studio with the mission to design interactive experiences in unprecedented ways, utilising revolutionary technology from scratch to stimulate breakthrough experiences. Erica is the developer’s debut release.
