Alt-Frequencies, the strange time-looping audio adventure from Accidental Queens (the folks behind A Normal Lost Phone), is out today. It’s an oddball puzzle, set entirely in the comfort of your own home, listening to the radio. Problem is, the world (minus you) is repeating the same three minutes over and over again, and you’ve got to somehow break out by recording messages from the airwaves, and sending them in as a caller. A coffee-break Groundhog Day scenario, then. Have a listen at the audio-heavy trailer below, although the game itself is fully and helpfully subtitled.
After packing a mystery into a pocket telephone with A Normal Lost Phone and its sequel, French studio Accidental Queens are next broadcasting a time-looping mystery over the radio. Alt-Frequencies is set within a three-minute time loop, the same stretch of Monday repeating over and over – but we can influence the next loop. By recording and broadcasting snippets of various radio stations, apparently we’ll get to uncover a conspiracy and learn more about people and… huh! I’m interested.
