After packing a thriller right into a pocket phone with A Normal Lost Phone and its sequel, French studio Accidental Queens are subsequent broadcasting a time-looping thriller over the radio. Alt-Frequencies is about inside a three-minute time loop, the identical stretch of Monday repeating again and again – however we are able to affect the following loop. By recording and broadcasting snippets of varied radio stations, apparently we’ll get to uncover a conspiracy and be taught extra about individuals and… huh! I’m .
I vote sure for time loop. I’ve at all times voted sure for time loop. I at all times will vote sure for time loop.
Talking about rewinding and enhancing did get my hopes up for Slyvio-style tape manipulation however nah, I believe it’s extra about selecting revealing snippets that may ripple outwards. I believe.
“Populated with all sorts of different characters and personalities, players get an intimate look into the lives of radio hosts, conspiracy theorists, students, politicians, underground activists, train station managers – and a dog,” Accidental Queens say. “By redistributing information, you change what happens in the next 3 minute time loop and impact both news cycles and the lives of the people behind them. Listen as their personal stories evolve, in a world that seems to stand still.”
I’m actually up for that. Their first game was grand, as John defined in our A Normal Lost Phone review, and I do get pleasure from poking with loops and repetitions – whether or not it’s repeating Hitman assassinations in new methods to see how they unfold or the rising story of Destiny 2’s Dreaming City curse.
Neatly, Accidental Queens say they’re planning a wide range of accessibility choices for all kinds of parents, “including blind and visually impaired players.”
Alt-Frequencies is because of launch on Steam in May.
