Content Warning is PC Only, but I Managed to Play on Mobile

What is «Content Warning»?

«Content Warning» is a co-op horror game where you film spooky content with friends to try and go viral.

Is it PC-Only?

Yes – Content Warning is only available on PC.

The developers focused on a PC release due to quality and performance concerns and already have a strong PC player base, making mobile investment risky​​.

But you managed to play on mobile?

Yes! Check out my video where I played «Content Warning» on mobile. Watch as I navigate the game, team up with a random player, and face our tragic end. It’s an exciting watch.

Below, I will explain how I made this possible.

My Motivation

I wanted to challenge myself by playing this PC-only game on a mobile device. After some trial and error, and numerous Google searches, I finally succeeded. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.

Steps to Play «Content Warning» on Mobile

Here’s a detailed guide on how you can do it too:

  1. Download Steam Link (Steam Link for iPhones): Install the Steam Link app on your mobile device.
  2. Launch Steam on PC: Ensure Steam is up and running on your computer.
  3. Pair Devices: Set up Steam Link on both your PC and mobile, following the prompts to pair them.
  4. Connect Mobile to PC: Open the Steam Link app on your phone and connect to your PC.
  5. Launch the Game: Run «Content Warning» on your PC through Steam.
  6. Play on Mobile: Use your mobile as a remote screen and control the game from there.

Troubleshooting Tips:

  • Lag Issues: Ensure both devices are connected to a strong Wi-Fi network.
  • Control Problems: Use keyboard emulation through Steam Link since the game has more than 11 control buttons that don’t map well to a gamepad.

My Gameplay Experience

The gameplay was better than expected. Though the controls were initially awkward, I got used to them quickly. The graphics remained stable with minor lags.

Playing with random players added unpredictability. I cooperated with one random player who got lost halfway through. I ended up getting killed, and soon after, my teammate also died. The game’s brutal nature was evident in this experience​.

Reflections on the Experience

Was it worth it? Definitely. Would I do it again? Yes. The thrill of proving it could be done was worth every effort. It led to some memorable gaming moments. If you’re looking for a challenge and want to impress your friends, give it a try. Let me know how it goes!
