1. Device 6

Genre: Mystery, Thriller

I’ll be the first to admit that games which require a lot of thinking are not the ones for me. I found the style and gameplay extremely unique, with haunting soundtracks and never ending puzzles for you to solve. It will definitely keep you wanting for more after every chapter. This text-based interactive game is a winner of the Apple Design Award 2014. The text will shift depending on what is currently happening in the story- and allows you to go back and forth during the chapter to look for clues.
