Journey made a surprise debut on iOS this week and you'll soon be able to play another indie darling on the go. The Chinese Room says its exploration-focused Dear Esther will be available for iPhone and iPad later this year.

After starting out as a Half-Life 2 mod, it arrived on PC and Mac in 2012, then PS4 and Xbox One in 2016. It's sold more than a million copies to date. In Dear Esther, you'll listen to a man read fragments of letters to his late wife, Esther, each time you reach a new area of a mysterious island. The fragments are randomized for each playthrough, and it's up to you to piece them and other clues together to find your own interpretation of the story.
