Replica is an upcoming interactive fiction title that follows in the footsteps of games such as TouchTone and Blackbar, exploring themes of privacy and surveillance.

Rather than the more common "text-then-choices" style of interactive fiction, Replica instead presents the player with a virtual phone. The owner of the phone is suspected of terrorist activities, and your goal is to search through the phone and hack into its files and history to find evidence.

Photos, browser history, settings, apps, contacts lists, social media accounts; you piece together the owner's story and reach one of 13 endings through apps and icons that are likely familiar to anyone who uses a mobile device.

Replica is currently available on PC through itch.io, and is expected to release on Steam and mobile devices this year.
