Malaysian made mobile game goes viral globally
Malaysian based mobile gaming company Monsoon Lab's sole production “Sara is Missing” is making waves in the international indie gaming scene.
According to Vulcan post, The game that’s said to be inspired from other indie game such as “Her Story”, “Emily is Away” and “Replica” garnered a huge reception when it was played by YouTube gaming icons such as kubz scouts, Markiplier and Jacksepticeye.
The interface of the horror game resembles that of an iPhone screen with users having access to do anything they can; from replying Sara’s text messages to commenting on her poetry notes.

Throughout the gameplay, users will have to find clues and links that will eventually lead them to Sara’s whereabouts.
The app that combines witch craft, cult followings and many more horrific elements had just recently won the award for the Best Upcoming Game category at the very first South East Asian Mobile Gaming Award.
Not only that, the game developers told Vulcan post that they had incorporated as much Malaysian elements as they could in the gameplay and was glad to have finally (or literally) put Malaysia on the map.
