Still, Another Lost Phone is worth playing because it does broach the kinds of topics we don't usually see in mobile games but we see and hear about every day. Some may disagree about the potential of mobile games as a tool for social awareness, but since these devices are usually implicated in all kinds of unpleasantness, I think it's appropriate that they also be used as a way to remedy the issues they can often create.
Another Lost Phone: Laura's Story is more or less true to its name. It is very much another game like A Normal Lost Phone. This makes it a pretty unsurprising package in some ways, but there are also some welcome improvements that improve the experience. Even with these enhancements though, Laura's Story just doesn't have the same magical impact of A Normal Lost Phone. It's still a great game, but it's also completely expected.
Another Lost Phone is a brief exploration about one woman’s experience with domestic abuse, and though there are some missteps, I enjoyed the experience overall. It’s definitely an important topic to talk about, and to Accidental Queens’s credit, they do so without being overly heavy-handed. I only wish our time with Laura wasn’t so brief, and that we learned more about who she was beyond her relationship with her abuser.
