A two player deduction game played in 5 minutes for PC/Phone.
Lost in Transmission is about two people trying to communicate across country borders where an authoritarian government modifies and censors your communications.
The person living in this country needs several objects to start a revolution, and their comrade must parse what particular things they need based on limited communication. Be careful though, some items are illegal contraband that could alert the government to your activities!
Players pass a laptop or phone back and forth between them with one player giving clues for what objects to send, and the other player evaluating and using those clues to make educated guesses. The game censors and modifies the clues as they are sent for added difficulty and complexity.
