My Week Unwrapped: November 18, 2022 – IMMORTALITY, OPUS Echo of Starsong, Evidence 111, Finding Paradise and More

Hi everyone, and welcome back to My Week Unwrapped, where I discuss all the games I’ve been playing over the last seven days. I’m a bit under the weather, so near with me here. Some great games released this week and I spent time with them, but not nearly as much as I wanted to. Most notably was Sam Barlow’s IMMORTALITY finally releasing on Netflix, and OPUS: Echo of Starsong getting a mobile port. There might not be a ton of games to discuss, but there is quality. So let’s get started.


I’ve been waiting not-so-patiently for Sam Barlow’s latest game, IMMORTALITY, to release on mobile. It had been out for months on other platforms, but they were perfecting the mobile port for Netflix. It’s finally here, though, and it’s quite a trip. Like Her Story and Telling Lies, it’s made up entirely of live action video clips that you’ll discover out of order. This time, you’re watching three unreleased films that started Marissa Marcel before she vanished without a trace. This game works a little differently, though. Instead of searching for words contained in each clip, you pinch to zoom in on a face and then it finds another clip featuring that actor. But there’s a lot more to it. My first session, I just watched the clips normally and didn’t realize there was anything else going on. But by my second session I started noticing some odd things. I don’t want to spoil it, but I’ve played for 6.5 hours so far and I’m fully engrossed, trying to find more weird stuff to unravel this mystery. I took a break from it while sick because I want to give it my full focus, but I’m hoping to get back to it tomorrow. If you have a Netflix account, definitely give it a try and have a little patience with it reveals its secrets. I’m also collecting all my videos here if you want to see more or need some help finding those secrets.

OPUS: Echo of Starsong

OPUS: Echo of Starsong is the latest game in SIGONO’s OPUS series. Unlike the previous ones, it released first on PC on other platforms, but I had hopes it would join the rest of the series on mobile. This week, my prayers were answered and it got an iOS release. I’ve so far played through the first chapter and it’s already sucked me in. You play as Jun, and in the first chapter you go on a dangerous mission to try and rescue Eda, who went into a space pirate lair on her own. The game is well-written, looks gorgeous, and is accompanied by a haunting soundtrack. Again, I meant to play more of it this week but those plans got interrupted by this nasty flu I got. I’ll definitely play more over the weekend and give more impressions next week. But if you want to see what it’s like, you can watch some of my gameplay video below.

Evidence 111

Evidence 111 is an interactive audio mystery without any visuals aside from the choices you can make at each branching path. The best way to experience it is to just close your eyes and try to picture the action in your head. In the game, you play as Chief Inspector Alice Wells, who ignored a child lying in the middle of the road in 1975. Ten years later, she gets a mysterious phone call from someone who knows what she did and demands to meet her at an inn. The game takes less than two hours to finish, so I would recommend playing in one sitting and treating it like a movie. For the most part, the acting was well-done and I was absorbed in the story, not missing the visuals. I think the story itself was lacking a bit, but I still enjoyed it and would recommend everyone at least try the free demo before deciding whether to buy the full game. There are also supposed to be ten alternate endings, but I’m not sure I would replay it to find them. I would definitely play more games by this developer, so I hope they continue making them.

Finding Paradise

Finding Paradise is the sequel to the beloved To the Moon, which I admittedly never finished. But I spent about an hour with this new game and I’m enjoying it quite a bit, so I hope to stick with it. Once again, you’re playing as two doctors who give patients end-of-life wishes by changing their memories so they can move on feeling more fulfilled. You control Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts at different points in the story as they navigate the memories of their new patient, Colin. His wish is very vague, just wanting a more fulfilled life without making too many changes, especially to his family life. I’ve only just scratched the surface of the story, but I’m very much looking forward to playing more. It’s just been a busy week with a lot of great releases. I’ll be sure to have more impressions next week, but if you want to see what the game is like you can watch some of my gameplay video below.

Adventure Escape Mysteries: Legend of the Time Stones

I meant to finish my videos for Legend of the Time Stones this week, but I only got though chapter 4. Hopefully I’ll get more done this coming week. Until then, you can use my step-by-step guide if you need help.

Genshin Impact

And last, I’m still playing Genshin Impact daily and haven’t lost interest in it. I really enjoyed the recent event that had us training and battling with wild fungi monsters like they’re Pokémon and can’t wait for that event to return. Other than that, I’ve mostly been doing my dailies and saving primogems for Yae Miko’s return. And she just arrived tonight and I pulled for her two constellations. It was not pretty. Her first con went to double pity, costing me around 160 wishes. Her second con came a lot sooner at 62 pity. It still hurts spending so many of my wishes, but hopefully it was worth it. At least I still have enough to guarantee one more character, possibly Scaramouche.

And that’s everything I’ve been up to this past week. I also watched Enola Holmes 2, which was fantastic. And I caught up on the fourth season of The Dragon Prince, and I’m amazed how it’s still so good. I wish we didn’t have to wait so long for new episodes. Anyway, let me know in the comments section which games you’re enjoying and I’ll see you back here next time with more of My Week Unwrapped!
