Video: Another Lost Phone: Laura's Story In The Test
When scrolling through Laura's messages and emails, the first impression is that she is leading a rather inconspicuous, downright idyllic life. She has already left her teenage years behind, she has friends and colleagues with whom she regularly drinks, she exchanges recipes, meets families, does sports and, on top of that, she is also in love. The job search is a problem for her, but that too quickly gets under control. It could hardly go better. But Laura is still not doing well. At some point she no longer dares to go to the office; she prefers to work from her apartment. What could be the causes? Mobbing? There were already a few strange emails from colleagues. And what about your doctor's appointments? Why doesn't she want to meet her friends anymore? And what role does your friend play in this? Isn't your relationship as rosy as you thought? And with every further advance to track Laura's disappearance, the idyllic facade crumbles a little more.

A Normal Lost Phone: Our test for the predecessor
Complex topic in a nutshell
With Another Lost Phone, Accidental Queens once again manage to condense serious social issues in narrative terms and to get to the point in a playful way. Sophisticated puzzle fun and an extensive plot, however, play a secondary role, as with the predecessor. In fact, after a maximum of two hours, all the information is combined and the passwords cracked. Even though the playing time of the two games does not differ much, it is unfortunately more difficult this time to identify with the characters. Once you become aware of what's going on with Laura, the credits are already rolling. I would have liked to know more about Laura's life and her motivations. However, the lovingly animated phone user interface is intuitive and has even been optimized compared to its predecessor,but also not reinvented the wheel. After numerous games like Orwell, Sara is Missing or Mr. Robot, which use similar means to blur reality and fiction, this is becoming increasingly difficult.

Conclusion on Another Lost Phone
And yet: Another Lost Phone is an important, small puzzle game that complements the order of A Normal Lost Phone wonderfully. The game confronts the "finder" of Laura's cell phone in a sensitive way with psychological and physical violence, without doing any research into the causes, but rather to sensitize them to the extremely complex topic. So if you are a fan of unconventionally told stories, who can do without excessive puzzle fun for the sake of the story, then you are absolutely at the right place with this game.
You will like it if you can win something from small indie games with a meaningful story, which also deal with serious topics.
You won't like it if you avoid text adventures, can't do without tricky puzzles, prefer escapist games
