Time-looping Audio Mystery Alt-Frequencies Launches May 16th

Unravel a strange mystery between multiple radio stations in Alt-Frequencies.

Development studio Accidental Queens confirmed today that its narrative-driven, audio-based mystery game Alt-Frequencies will land on PC and mobile on May 16th, 2019.

The studio has also announced that actor Jasika Nicole (Fringe, Scandal) and writer/host/producer Mike Rugnetta (CrashCourse, Reasonably Sound) will be joining the VO cast for the game.

Alt-Frequencies has the player unravelling a mystery that takes place across multiple radio stations. It involves a disparate group of people, intersecting where interactive investigation meets podcasting.

You’re able to record, rewind time and broadcast parts of radio shows to find out the truth about the time loop, a conspiracy and the biggest vote in history.

In the game, players will solve a series of puzzles in order to progress the investigation. A radio/audio format is used as the game’s key mechanic that just so happens to be the signature calling card of the development team over at Accidental Queens – the team behind A Normal Lost Phone.

Players will get a look into the lives of radio hosts, conspiracy theorists, students, politicians, underground activists, train station managers and even a dog as they manipulate and redistribute information between them.

Check out the teaser trailer for the game below. And you can listen to some of the game’s soundtrack over on Bandcamp.
