PARIS – August 3, 2017 – Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story, the new narrative mystery game from developers Accidental Queens, has been revealed today and will launch later this summer on Steam (PC,  Mac, and Linux), iOS and Android. A spiritual successor to the award-winning and commercially successful indie hit A Normal Lost Phone, which sold more than 100,000 copies, the title once again places players in a position to unravel questions and puzzles in a unique story experience centered on the missing owner of an enigmatic phone.

In Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story players are tasked to find out what happened to Laura, a young woman who has apparently vanished without a trace. Stumbling on her lost phone, they need to discover what happened to her by uncovering crucial pieces of information and hidden passwords scattered among texts, apps, photo gallery and social networks. Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story explores different aspects of Laura’s troubled life, touching upon social themes usually not discussed in games, and should be instantly recognizable to fans of the original A Normal Lost Phone. The game features a completely new story, including new puzzles and new mysteries to solve.

“We knew the themes of homophobia and peer pressure we explored in our first game, A Normal Lost Phone, would move a lot of people, but we really didn’t anticipate the great impact it would have,” said Elizabeth Maler, co-founder of Accidental Queens. “Seeing the positive reactions from our community, we quickly made the decision that other important issues should be brought to the player’s attention. Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story follows the same format, but has a completely new story, with new puzzles and player interactions hidden in a narrative system that is both unique and instantly recognizable to anyone who has a phone.”

Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story features songs licensed from influential music label WARP (Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada) including the track “White Gloves” by Khruangbin. Full details on pricing and the release date will be revealed in the near future.
