A new audio-based game from the acclaimed studio behind A Normal Lost Phone & Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story coming to PC & mobile
PARIS — February 26, 2019 — What happens when everyone is stuck in a time loop without knowing?Lauded development studio Accidental Queens announced today that its new game, Alt-Frequencies, is coming to PC and mobile this spring. Alt-Frequencies takes players on an audio-based journey where interactive investigation meets podcasting, and players are tasked with unravelling a mystery taking place between multiple radio stations among a disparate group of people.
In Alt-Frequencies players will solve a series of puzzles to progress in their investigation. A radio/audio format is used as the game’s key mechanic, delivering an innovative and original method of non-linear storytelling. Alt-Frequencies supports Visually Impaired players and Blind gamers by utilizing a solid game design that allows players of various disabilities to be included in the game.
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.
“Alt-Frequencies stays faithful to the spirit of A Normal Lost Phone & Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story,” said Miryam Houali, co-founder and artist at Accidental Queens. “The story is based on real-world situations and daily interactions and aims at raising awareness about important social issues that becomes more clear as you progress through the game.”
The official soundtrack for the game is available to preorder, and you can listen to already released tracks on Bandcamp: https://alt-frequencies.bandcamp.com/album/alt-frequencies-soundtrack
Alt-Frequencies is expected to launch on PC and mobile this spring on Steam, iOS and Android.
