Indie Exploration Walking Simulator Dear Esther Is Making Debut On iOS

The acclaimed indie exploration walking simulator Dear Esther is making its mobile debut on iOS devices sometime this year, says developer The Chinese Room. Launched initially as a standalone title in 2012 on PC after evolving from a Half-Life 2 mod, Pricey Esther was later ported to PS4 and Xbox One in 2016. Now followers can have the chance to explore Dear Esther’s superbly overcast Hebridean isle from the mobile accessibility of their iPhones and iPads.

“Without Dear Esther, The Chinese Room maybe wouldn’t exist, so to know that people will proceed to explore the island in search of answers is extremely fulfilling,” said Dan Pinchbeck from developer The Chinese Room. “iOS units will provide an expertise perhaps even more intimate and private than when the sport is performed on a PC or a console, so I stay up for hearing how the game affects a new era of players.”

Dear Esther places you in the first-person perspective of an anonymous widower as he reads fragments of letters, that are unlocked every time you attain a brand new space, to his late spouse. The story is explored through virtually zero precise gameplay, instead of giving you the freedom to interpret the dark tale by way of these letter fragments, that are different with every playthrough.

The story is explored through just about zero actual gameplay, instead of giving you the freedom to define the nebulous story by the use of these letter fragments, which are different with each playthrough.
