A Normal Lost Phone podcast review
We find a discarded phone, and do our best Columbo act to try and piece together the owners life, in A Normal Lost Phone.
A Normal Lost Phone – QorC Ep.76
What would you do if you found someone’s unlocked phone? Trawl through their messages? Whack it on eBay? Order that Dallas box set you’ve always dreamed of through their Amazon account? A Normal Lost Phone is a game that puts you in exactly this position, giving you full control of a stranger’s phone, and tasking you with working out who it belongs to, and what’s happened in their life.
The Quit or Continue guys talk about their time with the game, and how a small indie title can tackle big subjects. We also discuss other places the concept could be taken, and the moral quandary of delving into a stranger’s personal life. For some reason, Andy also plugs the Jorvik Viking Centre, and we don’t know why.

About Quit or Continue
Want to know more about Quit or Continue? Well, the short version is that we’re four 30-something blokes who love games, don’t have the time we used to and want to guide people like us to make the right choice when they buy games.
We review games in the book club-style to tell you if a game is a waste of time. And, even better, we’re here to make your voice heard, so please let us know your thoughts on the game @quitorcontinue.
