This is a visual novel about the growing up of a girl from the suburbs who dreams of a life in the big city. It's also about a conspiracy, hacking, surveillance, but most importantly about friendship.

The Invisible Apartment Zero is a prequel to the original Invisible Apartment ( http://invisibleapartment.com ), which I'll be calling IA1 for the sake of simplicity.
It's set in a time a few years before the events of IA1 when Kacey is still living with her parents in the suburbs. She's excited about the World which is "out there" and hates how nothing exciting ever happens where she lives. She dreams of traveling to the big city, meeting new people and seeing interesting places. But something happens that turns Kacey's World upside down. You'll find the rest in the visual novel itself.
The length should be around 1.5 hours, so about 3 times more than the IA1. The alternative routes are not that simple and straightforward as in IA1 where if you made a bad move it had a bad ending quite swiftly.
From the beginning I've planned the Invisible Apartment as a series. The IA1 has begun after "some events" and also ends without resolving them. This release answers how Kacey got where she was in IA1.

Regarding questions of what platforms will be supported and so on I have a short statement:
During the last Months I’ve received a lot of comments, input and questions. Most of the input for IA1 was along the lines of that the text needs proofreading and that the story needs to be longer. With IA0 I’m doing both - I’ve started working with people on copywriting and proofreading and the story is longer than Invisible Apartment 1. People have also been asking when and if IA will be available for other platforms. Invisible Apartment Zero will is available from almost the beginning for Windows, Linux and iPad. At the same time I’m planning a re-release of IA1 for Windows. Down the line there is also a plan to do a rerelease of IA1 which would see a remake of some parts of the dialogues so that it gets to the standard of the current development (that is planned for 2015).
From 2015 I’m planning to do all releases from the beginning for both mobile and Desktop.
People have also asked “why not Android, why not other, etc.”. Well I guess that the best explanation would be that it’s only a time and resources issue, nothing else. As time progresses, as I know new people, as the circle of people with whom I'm working grows so do the possibilities. The same goes for translations.
