Developer: Next Studio

Publisher: bilibili

Genres: Simulation, RPG

Put on your headphones and step back into the past. Use the voices you hear to return to crime scenes, tracking down each individual involved and solving the cases. But where do the voices come from? Can you trust what you hear? And what’s the mysterious thread weaving all of these cases together?


A UNIQUE CASE-SOLVING EXPERIENCEDISCOVER THE TRUTH HIDDEN IN THE VOICES FROM THE PAST.

Step through time as you use our device to eavesdrop on conversations from past crime scenes. Every clue, every move, and every motive will be presented in the form of audio. Rather than controlling any one character, you only need listen to their conversations, following along as the story evolves. Use the information you hear to match names to voices and determine how everything (and everyone) is related. Can you discover the truth?

OPEN-ENDED NARRATIVE MYSTERY GAMEEXPLORE THE STORY AND PIECE TOGETHER THE PUZZLE IN YOUR OWN WAY!

Don’t expect to be “fed” a pile of clues. Rather, take the role of a fly on the wall, observing and listening to the events as they unfold. Anyone could be the culprit; key clues may be revealed at any second; any character's storyline may cross paths with another at any point in time. YOU be the editor—the order of the story is up to you!

Whether it’s a wonky voice performance, silly mechanic, or the feeling that it ends far before it’s finished, Unheard fails to realize its maximum potential.

Sometimes a single good idea is enough to think out of the box and make a simple, but intriguing game. Unheard proves that listening can be as engaging as watching, but it lacks any kind of reward, making patience more valuable than skills.

I love the idea of using voices to find the truth, and I like the way that Unheard tells the story, very creative. Regrettably, the game is too easy to play, which means the puzzels are barely not challenging, and the stories are not impressive enough as well.

While Unheard stumbles through a few technical issues, it's premise alone makes it thoroughly enjoyable. Though short, every minute of Unheard is packed with intrigue and there's something immensely satisfying about having that ah-ha moment when all the pieces click together.
