    "Who am I?"

    ALTER EGO is a Self-Discovery Clicker Game for those who want to analyze their personality, with an interest in literature, philosophy, or psychology, are continuously searching for themselves, and you.

    In ALTER EGO, you wander into the place which is closed off from the outside world to discover yourself. Touch whispers and read literatures to gather EGO: the foundation in this place. You can use EGO to progress the story and take various personality tests. What you learn in this game will guide you to see yourself in a new light.

    The ending changes based on the choices you make. Your interpretation changes the nature of the in-game world.

    "This is our story: yours, and mine."

    What makes my game unique?

    What makes ALTER EGO unique is that you can find yourself through the story. ALTER EGO uses the mechanics of clicker games to give you time to reflect on yourself and the world. You can tap the various quotes that flow as whispers and silently dive into your thoughts. In addition, there are a variety of personality tests between the stories, which can help you to become aware of yourself. The ending of the story depends on the player's choice. The main thing that ALTER EGO wants to teach through the game is not the end of self-discovery, but the continuation of self-discovery. ALTER EGO can stay close to you as a companion for self-discovery after the game.

    Why could my game win an award?

    ALTER EGO can provide a new experience that is different from traditional mobile games. Combines a clicker game with personality tests and visual novel to tell a moving story that is completely different from an exciting game.
