Device 6 (stylized as DEViCE6) is a text-based adventure game developed by Swedish game developer Simogo for iOS. The game uses text, images and sounds to guide the player through a set of puzzles, which the in-game protagonist, Anna, needs to solve to escape from an unknown island. Device 6 uses mainly text in its gameplay, and the player swipes the screen to move through or review the story. The text may turn or split into branches in certain points of the game, adapting to the protagonist's movements in the story.
