‘Alt-Frequencies’ is a Time-Looping Audio Mystery Game from the Makers of ‘A Normal Lost Phone’, Coming in May

Accidental Queens, the French developer responsible for the unique narrative investigation games A Normal Lost Phone ($2.99) and Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story ($2.99), are teasing their newest project which is heading to mobile and desktop next month. It’s called Alt-Frequencies and, like the games they’ve produced before it, it’s a unique take on a narrative investigation game, though this time instead of rooting through a faux smartphone interface for information you’ll be solving a mystery using radio broadcasts. Here’s a teaser trailer.

The official description states: “Alt-Frequencies tasks players with unravelling a mystery taking place between multiple radio stations among a disparate group of people, intersecting where interactive investigation meets podcasting. Record, rewind time and broadcast snippets of radio shows to find out the truth about the time loop, a conspiracy and the biggest vote in history." and “Players will get an intimate 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 and impact their lives in various ways." It all sounds very interesting and I’ll definitely be looking forward to checking out Alt-Frequencies when it arrives on iOS, Android, and Steam sometime in May.
