METANOIA is an app which enables the player to completely emerge in an incredibly captivating real-time adventure. What makes METANOIA special is that the player becomes an active part of the game’s story whose role consists of helping a fictional character (called Sam, sex unknown) in a post-apocalyptical adventure. Sam is inside an evacuated zone without food, equipment or anyone to talk to. The player soon gets the feeling that a close friend desperately needs help. For the player and Sam, this is the beginning of a thrilling journey full of dangers. The player’s decisions and interactions influence settings and storyline and play a decisive role in the course of the entire story. The player communicates with Sam via a messenger app which intensifies the perceived realism of the game. Whether real or not, METANOIA certainly is one thing: An incredibly captivating story.
Sam reacts like a real human being. The communication via messenger is direct and fast, at least when Sam is not busy or sleeping. When the player advises Sam to do something, for example, to search a house for something to eat, Sam will be absent for a realistic period of time to carry out that action. When Sam is back, the player will receive a message which will be presented as a notification on the player’s smartphone. In order to respond, the player only has to open the app. If the player does not want to respond right away, it will not have any negative impact on the game and Sam will try to reach you later. But usually, the player will already wait impatiently for Sam's message.
At certain points of the game, the players will have the possibility to compare themselves to other players in a statistic. Considering the morally difficult decisions the players will have to make, this will be a particularly popular feature.
