Discover the dreams, fears and secrets of others—and leave your own for others to find.
In this award-winning social experience, human thoughts exist as sleeping creatures that can be awakened to reveal voice-recorded stories of other participants who were here before you. These anonymous stories are revealing and inspiring, encouraging reflection and introspection. To progress, you must leave your own stories behind for others to uncover
Visually beautiful and wholly transformative, Where Thoughts Go thematically explores the course of a lifetime through five simple questions written to dig deep. The voice recordings you hear are unique and unidentifiable, left by individuals from every walk of life, every age and every background. Participants have no way to discern who they are hearing from, only how considerate and sensitive each and every person is.

More limited than I expected. I was hoping this would be for openly sharing ANY thoughts, not just answering specific questions or prompts. I found myself quite bored and felt restricted as I hoped this would allow for venting or comforting other people.
I'm new to Vr the reviews don't lie. So I'm super new to Vr but totally obsessed I can't stop entering new worlds and exploring different games so much fun!! I discovered this app and honestly it is my favorite so far. There's not a whole lot to it as in graphics or activity but the getting to hear other peoples answers from all different walks a life is so exciting and just like everyone else has admitted answering at least on if the questions I broke down and cried it honestly was touching. If your a touchy feely kind of person this app/game is for you!!
Moving and healing experience. I genuinely enjoyed hearing other people's reaponses...lots of deep and real answers thar made me think, and above all, feel like I'm not alone. I hope my answers reach someone one day as well, and potentially help them in some way too.
Powerful at first..... then changed..... (Updated after first leaving a 4 star rating)
Powerful is the first word that come to mind after my first time experiencing this.. i didnt know what to expect going into it but it was better then i thought it could be. Well the idea of it. The design idea with the little orbs with faces being the peoples thoughts is brilliant.
The only issue i found and hopefully the developers will see this to get it updated.. the fourth thought i had to leave had letters missing from the question, i could make out what it was supposed to be but it lost a bit of the immersion during that 😔 also at the end it put my recordings infront of me with just jumbled up letters going vertically through the orb which i wasnt sure why it was like that and then i didnr know what i was supposed to do.. i played a couple.. moved them round then pressed to menu and returned home, but then it showed the chapters as still locked so it seemed it didn't save my recordings.
What should of happened at the end?
After speaking to a few people asking them did it not sound like some of the messages left in the same chapter sounded like the same persons voice and then they think it may be the developers leaving the first messages which is fair enough if there legit and not faked to leave the feeling of an emotional message which if they ARE faked lefr messages (which a lot of them really sounded like acted lines read out and not genuine people just talking and leaving the message on the fly) then to me that is quite sad and not fair on people listening to them messages and as some of the other reviews show people gettin choked up or sad from listening to the stories left.
Thats kinda playing with peoples emotions same as telling someone a fake story to make them feel sad for you. I hope it isnt this as if thats the case then i dont support the app at all.
I would of rathered there be No messages left in there until GENUINE ones are left from real people leaving there actual stories and memories.
I will go back in at somepoint but part of me is saying not to bother. Such a shame.
UPDATE AFTER RECEIVING REPLY FROM DEVELOPERS -
Im not sure how i am supposed to respond to your reply as there wasnt an option anywhere. I apologise that i don't fully believe what you have said. Every single recording had the exact same quality to them, with added reverb and pretty much crystal clear audio. Yes i also understand that people can prepare there redording before recording it but i never so i would like to assume some others wouldnt. I recorded it naturally with my live thought being left as it came out at the time. I will re visit the experience again soon and hopefully come come out with a more positive outcome which i then will amend my review but currently my review is as it has been left above.
Update over 1 year later returning to the app -
I now 100% believe this is fake. I was expecting to hear after all this time ones that sounded genuine yet it still sounds like the same couple of american men and womans messages recorded. The quality on all the recordings are as if there using $200 microphones yet our recordings are from the quest which is completely different.
Its a shame as this for some people could be a real safe place to listen to how people feel but when they all sound acted it instantly loses its meaning.
Very personal and engaging. Very pretty scenes for all 5 chapters. I listened to all of the voicenotes that were available, even when the option to record your own and move on is always available. It’s interesting getting to hear how other people answer the questions compared to how you are answering them. It was a creative, eye-opening experience and no other app is like it. Please release more chapters, should be quite simple so I’ll be back when more comes.
Remember to answer the questions honestly and remember there are NO WRONG ANSWERS. People swore a few times, answered “I don’t know” and/or said some strange things but that shows how real it is. I completed it within an hour so I don’t know if it should be $11.99 CND, maybe $6.99. Anyways, great job and release more chapters ASAP.
Cathartic and emotionally engaging. I never write reviews but I feel compelled to for this game. The questions were stirring and gave me pause. listening to the responses from strangers was moving and at times gut-wrenching. It felt like a cathartic release. I said things that I feel like I can’t say to anyone. Only negative I have for this game is that it’s way too short. This game needs forty chapters not five!!!!
So beautiful. This game was so heartfelt and beautiful. It had gorgeous environments and listening to people's stories and perspectives on things was just so sweet. Some people had wonderful stories about love thats lasted 20+ years, other people talked about how they overcame their circumstances to achieve things. It was such a wonderful experience. I would love to play more, with more prompts. It did have me crying at some points but that just shows what a touching game this is.
Wow. This game is not only visually stunning but it’s really personal. It forces you to ask yourself tough questions and then answer them. There’s also something magical and touching about listening to the genuine thoughts of others with no judgement. If I could give it more stars, I would!
Intriguing. It's very interesting the hear the private thoughts of strangers.
Cant submit recording. This is a nice idea but only to the 4th chapter and it seems to be stuck, not allowing me to submit a recording. Also it would be nice to be able to listen to and review your recording before it goes off in space. This was a gift for my birthday and i really wish i could get my credit back.
Deep. Made me think about things I haven't in years. Listened to other voices around world most inner thoughts.
The concept is great. The experience and design is fantastic but I’m skeptical that these are real users or that messages we leave behind will ever be heard. The voices all sound really similar - the syntax and vocal mannerisms. I’ve gone into the chapters a few times and feel like a lot of the different messages are left by the same people. Maybe it’s my imagination, curious as to what others think? I wish it would have all the responses floating and that the user could teleport ahead and just keep listening to different orbs. I read the developer say be moderated responses and I get that he’s trying to weed out the trolls but it makes it feel less authentic. If these actually are real user responses and new ones are updated often, this is a kick a little app to get. Very unique and relaxing but I can’t shake the feeling most of us will never be heard.
Where Thoughts Go. 私たちがこれまでにレビューしたVR作品の中で、最も美しく、心温まるタイトルと言えるでしょう。基本的なコンセプトは、あなた自身についての質問をされ、正直に答えなければならないというものです。先に『思考のゆくえ』を体験した人たちは、自分の回答を録音していて、それを聞きながら自分の回答を考えることになります。非常に一般的な答えもあれば、もっと感情的で心の底からの答えもあります。子供の頃の夢についてなど、非常にストレートな質問もありますが、中にはもっと深い質問もあり、その人が初めて口にした言葉のような印象を受けることもあります。
Where Thoughts Go. Quite possibly the most beautiful and heart-warming titles we have ever reviewed in VR. The basic concept is that you are asked questions about yourself and you must answer truthfully. All those that have spent time in Where Thoughts Go before you will have already recorded their responses and are there for you to listen to while you think of your own response. Some answers can be very generic while others can be a lot more emotional and from the heart. While some questions (such as childhood dreams) can be very straight cut, some questions go a lot deeper and you really get the impression that these thoughts might be the first time these people have uttered the words out loud.
As there is no identifying information or names etc shared with users, you really are sharing your thoughts, hopes and fears with complete strangers around the world, with the safety of knowing you don’t have to answer to or explain yourself to anyone. We wouldn’t be surprised if the nature in which you are able to safely express yourself and listen to what weighs on other possibly like-minded people, might have a deeply positive psychological effect on the people sharing their thoughts, without there ever being any actual intervention from family, professionals or other potentially judgmental influences. You’re completely free to send your feelings out into the void.
We didn’t hear any trolling or childish responses to the questions meaning they’re possibly vetted before being submitted, which can be seen as either a good or bad thing (who’s to say whose thoughts are worthy of being shared for example). Also, it seems like you basically have to contribute before you can move on to listen to more question responses, which does give people the nudge they might need to get their voice out there, but it also seems a little pushy for people who are genuinely terrified of speaking up. Overall a great social experiment.

I want a refund. Very misleading, I purchased this app 20 minutes ago in the hope of getting an alternative to Tripp. There is no graphics and calming music to enjoy. Just a load of silly questions, am I missing the point here???
Stressful. Stressful in a good way of course, for people like me even thinking about your emotions is nerve-wracking. This game made me feel comfortable enough to listen and even record my own thoughts. There’s an odd comfort to opening up to others when they’ll never identify you.
My complaints consist of wanting more questions added and potentially an option for people to connect to one another anonymously in-game? There were times where i was hearing people’s stories where i wanted to jump in, but that isn’t the meaning of this game i suppose.
