‘A Normal Lost Phone’ is a game set entirely inside a smartphone

A Normal Lost Phone.” That’s precisely what you think after launching this curious new indie game. The text messages, calendar app and music player — everything is made to look and feel like a smartphone. You’re free to poke around, but with no credit or internet connection your options seem limited. That is, until you start reading the texts. You’ll quickly discover who the owner is and begin to piece together their life, including their relationships and inner demons. I’ll say no more — any further details would give away the story — but it’s a brilliant blend of writing and puzzles.

The game was created by Accidental Queens, a studio founded by three women in Tourcoing, France. The team started with a game jam prototype that anyone could play for free in their browser. The reception was so strong (it won the Best Indie Game award at Game Connection Europe 2016) that they decided to pitch a full version on the crowdfunding site Ulule. With an extra €11,227 (roughly $12,000) in the bank, Accidental Queens were able to build a larger game with more puzzles, apps and story. It’s available now on iOS, Android, PC, Mac and Linux — but ignore those last three, because the smartphone experience is definitely the way to go.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
