NEXT Studios has announced its upcoming narrative-centric detective game Unheard, will be releasing on PC (Steam) on March 29, 2019. Unheard combines story-driven audio drama with puzzle elements to create a unique experience where players will have to solve crimes by sound only.
Unheard puts players in the role of a time-traveling detective who is only able to use one sense, sound. The game’s story is a non-linear experience. Players will not always experience the crime from start to finish but instead must build their own timelines from the clues in conversations they overhear. The game simulates the real world in real time, so while players are in one room, other conversations, actions, and perhaps more sinister endeavors may be occurring elsewhere.
