"A political statement—a super fun one. I ■■■■■■■ love this ■■■■■■■ game." —Loren Brichter
"It's flawless." —TouchArcade
Written and designed by Neven Mrgan, Blackbar is a text game: a sci-fi story of a dystopian future told through the medium of word puzzles. Reminiscent of text adventures and interactive fiction, it has a unique mechanic centered around the concept of censorship. Censorship is frustrating, but the human spirit can beat that frustration by turning it into a game.
You'll pick up and understand Blackbar instantly; however, its challenges will keep you searching, trying, and thinking for days.
