ANOTHER LOST PHONE: LAURA'S STORY
Another Lost Phone is a game about exploring the social life of a young woman whose phone you have just found. This game is designed as a narrative investigation where you must piece together elements from the different applications, messages and pictures to progress. Scrolling through the phone’s content, you will find out everything about Laura: her friendships, her professional life and the events that led to her mysterious disappearance and the loss of this phone.
Released on Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android and iOS by Accidental Queens on September 21th, 2017, Another Lost Phone: Laura's Story is not a sequel to A Normal Lost Phone. It keeps the subtle approach to deal with heavy social issues of our society while being an engaging and immersive digital game. I've worked with the studio as producer from the beginning of the project to the public release, organizing the tasks and the priorities while managing few outsourcing needs such as sound design and music.

"Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story delivers on the uncomfortable, important, and personal journey it promises. Clever UI design, superb writing, and intricate, complex puzzling weave together to accurately simulate both a lost phone and the world of the real person it belonged to. Though it’s a brief, one-way ride, the takeaways (and music tracks!) will stay with you long after you’ve pocketed the device." by Rebekah Valentine, apptrigger.com, 2017/09/21.
"It's a game that builds on the legacy of its predecessor, using some of the same tricks, but presenting them in a much slicker, much more polished way. [...] It deals with big issues, with dark themes, and with things that other games are too afraid to talk about. And for that alone you should pick it up and give it a go." by Harry Slater, pocketgamer.co.uk, 2017/09/22.
"But even though Laura's Story ends when you put the phone down, that doesn't mean Laura's story, lowercase, ends there too. Working through and past abuse is a much longer process, but this game helps with the most important and vital step: acknowledging and accepting that what you went through is real, even if it isn't neat." by Kate Gray, Waypoint, 2017/10/03
