A: This depends on the game. Please check individual itch.io listings for details!

A: We have, indeed, remade all three original Unimatrix Productions titles, including Lifestream, Shady Brook, and The Filmmaker. Each remake features a revised and expanded storyline, along with new gameplay elements. All games also feature connections to one another, which hint at a larger storyline to come. Because of this, these new text adventures are considered the official “canon” versions of each game.

This dynamic would be ruined by providing the ability to manually save and reload, and so we currently have no intentions to implement this feature. But don’t worry: all our games auto-
