Bromoco’s game has also reached the top 50 of Steam Greenlight in just 48 hours.
The mobile version of the game is currently featured by Apple’s App Store in their “Adventure” category. The interactive dark fiction title is currently available for $2.99 in the App Store, Google Play, and Amazon and is also available via the studio’s Humble Widget, Android and iOS.
“We are thrilled that Apple appreciates the game and has decided to feature it,” said Morrison. “This is a great time for interactive fiction across all platforms.”
Told through stunning photos, a haunting soundscape, and gripping text, Buried’s interactive story features branching and alternate storylines based on choices the player makes. They must decide how to approach danger, who to trust, and who lives or dies.
Players take on the role of Roger Hastings, a logger working in the forests of Kentucky with his crew. When he awakens to find his friends missing and no memory of what’s happened, he begins searching, uncovering something that should have stayed hidden.
Barry Napier, Buried’s main writer, has had his work appear in more than 40 online and print publications. He is the creator of several popular fiction series including “The Bleeding Room,” the “Everything Theory” series, “The Hollows” and “The Masks of Our Fathers.”
