    Hello everyone,

    Just wanted to share some news here with you and hear your thoughts!
    Silent Streets, an augmented reality adventure app developed in Ireland, is coming out on smartphones on 23 June 2017 (iOS and Android).

    We have been working on this game for a year, and a lot of effort from some super-amazing people went into the game :)

    Watch a 30 second trailer here:

    1867, the peak of Victorian era. You play a private detective from London who arrives in a grim coastal town of Snowport to investigate a distress call from your old friend. You find him brutally murdered, and a short visit quickly turns into a full-scale campaign against criminal masterminds, corrupt police and a secret science society.

    Augmented reality features:
    1. In-game crime evidence is scattered in your real world surroundings. You discover these objects with your phone camera and tap on them to collect and use in your investigation. A murder weapon could be lying right on your working desk, just look around.
    2. You physically walk with the phone in your pocket to get around Snowport. The game uses your phone’s accelerometer and GPS sensors to measure how close you are to your game destination, such as a crime scene or your detective’s office. You can use your daily commutes, shopping trips or fitness time to progress through the story.
    Other features
    • The core of Silent Streets is a choose your own adventure gamebook, packed with memorable characters, puzzles, side quests and subtle humour. Inside game locations, you interrogate Snowport citizens, confront them with evidence, and build relationships. There are different ways to solve the case, and you can save let the criminal live – or pass your own judgement.
    • To further immerse player into the Victorian mystery world, Silent Streets is adorned with beautiful illustrations, an interactive map, full-scale voiceover by professional actors, ambient sound scenes and orchestral music.
    • Every Silent Streets episode is a self-contained detective case, and each case gets you closer to solving the big puzzle of Snowport. Who pulls the strings in the underground world? Will mysticism work where science fails? And finally, what is the Snow Queen project?
    Release dates and Sale
    • Episode One is scheduled for a limited release in Ireland on 23 June 2017, with more chapters to follow in July, August and September. The global release is planned for end of July this year. Smartphones with iOS and Android systems are supported.
    • Silent Streets Episode One will be available with a 100% discount in App Store and Google Play from 23 to 30 June.
    About the team
