About the game
Over The Phone is a talking sim about a photographer named Jake who meets a girl in the unlikeliest of places, on a customer support call with his internet service provider. The game is akin to a visual novel, in that it's primarily reading / listening to the conversation and periodically making choices about what to say.

  • Short game: ~25-30 min playthrough
  • 2.5 endings (2 primary endings, with one having an additional choice at the end)
  • Chill original soundtrack
  • Harper voiced by Catsen (ttv/catsen)


Most choices are part of a tone system, which include a word below that describes the tone/intention of that line. Making choices of a particular type makes it more likely to have similar choices later on and fewer choices that conflict with that tone.

If you played Drinks With Abbey, you're probably familiar with how unforgiving the game is when it comes to choices. You needed to pick specific ones throughout to get the "best" ending. In OTP, that's not the case. The types of choices you make do decide which ending you get, as well as change the conversation and future choices. But it's more flexible in terms of which specific options are chosen.

Contact / Intro

To contact me or to leave feedback or suggestions for the site , please reach me at:

My name is Kolten. I have an M.S. in computer science from the Colorado School of Mines and I work as a software engineer. I love web development and I am always trying my best to improve.

I made this website from scratch and I maintain it in my free-time. I was inspired to make a powerful game search engine after becoming overwhelmed by my own Steam library, thanks to incredible bundle sites like Humble Bundle.

This site scrapes data from Steam and makes many calls to Steam's web API every single day. I do my very best to keep all of the data as up-to-date as possible with my limited resources.


This site is the result of my desire to build a powerful Steam game picker that is more than just a simple random Steam game picker / generator.

I pay for this site out of pocket and get limited support from your donations, from affiliate links (Humble Bundle), and from some light advertising (feel free to adblock me if you find it overwhelming or you find that it significantly detracts from your experience).

If you are interested in an API or viewing some of the incredibly insightful data I have collected, check out the donation page to see more details on getting access to these things. I will also make a public API once I have enough donations to support its operation, but regardless I host the DataTrends page for patrons who donate enough!
