** 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 theyve been completed. Its 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 thats as imaginative as it is stylish"
Modojo - 4.5/5

Pros and cons of DEVICE 6 app for iPhone and iPad

DEVICE 6 app good for

This game feels like Alice In Graphicdesignland, a modern-retro contraption, of sight and sound and of mind. If Louis Carroll and Rod Serling made a graphic novel puzzle game in 2016, it might play something like this. Good luck you freaks!
I dont think I can find the words to explain how captivating and fascinating this game was. Creepy, original, challenging, and an all-around perfect game if Ive ever seen one. Loved and thoroughly recommend.
This is one of the best games I have ever played. It was intense, interesting, beautiful, enjoyable, and I never wanted it to stop. I only wish there were more levels.
This is the only puzzle game Ive played on iPad that is worth the price. Its both a legitimate challenge, where you have to really pay attention to the subtle clues, and a fun story to try to walk your way through. I really wish it was ten times longer though. SEQUEL PLEASE!
DEVICE 6 is worth its price because it is very very Emerging and exciting like when you think you are stuck on something you arent you just havent followed a code. After all I think if you like puzzle games you will love this. Plus if you like mystery, suspense or scary books then you will like this. This games is kinda like room 1, 2 or 3.
This is the greatest game Ive seen in a time time. It is so elaborate, beautiful, and was very well put together and thought out. It runs so smoothly. I love that you have to turn your phone with the text, and I love the music and sounds. The surveys in between each level and clever one you realize what they are for. The ending is so phenomenal. I would recommend this to anyone.

Some bad moments

the game contains jump scares and should be considered intense terror, not mild
Its so scary and creepy..... Seriously hate the creepy music. Why do u have to make so scary? I regret paying for this.
I do love puzzle games. I really liked The Year Walk. The puzzles in this game are for another kind of intelligence that I might not have. In fact, this game made me feel like a really dumb person! And I really do not like that feeling when playinga game. I was able to finish only one chapter without assistance. I was feeling like I was going thru a Mensa test! Puzzles too complicited for me! On the other hand, the design, the canvas of the story, the way of playing the game, the musical universe and the creepy mood are all above expectations. I do think it is still a great game but not for me...
The sound is not working for me, no music, no audio clips. Ive been trying to find a solution to fix it but there is nothing anywhere, and no way to control the sound via the app or app controls in my phones settings. And the audio is quite important to be able to accomplish anything with this app. Otherwise its an awesome app, but Im quite frustrated with this glitch. Other applications sounds work great on my phone.
The concept is really clever and the execution even feels well polished. Its a neat experience. Too bad Ive been stuck at the entrance to the lighthouse for several years now and Ive pretty much given up hope, so its a story about a person who gets caught up in a mysterious situation and then gets stranded. The end. Unfortunately the puzzle Im at world require years of brute force cracking via a frustrating and noisy interface and even at that it yields nothing.
Tries to be clever, and is very polished, but when you finish, you realize how hollow and meaningless the entire experience was. After BSB and YW, I feel a little bit cheated.
