London. Brought to you by the Indian-origin British CEO of British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) nominated studio Electric Noir, a new mobile game is in the news these days, in which players become crime-solving police detectives while playing the game. Nihal Tharoor and co-founder Benedict Tetham released the murder mystery game ‘Dead Man’s Phone’ to the world this week. In the beta version before its launch last year, more than 2,00,000 downloads were done.
Designed as an interactive crime drama, the player becomes the main character of the story and puts together evidence to solve the fictional murder of Jerome Jacobs, a London teenager who has been pushed off a balcony and is on the phone. Found dead in hand.
This phone is the main feature of this crime solving story. Tharoor said about it, “This concept takes advantage of the smartphone through which the player goes through the story in a new way. Our phones are a miniature of our lives and we all know their use very closely. It’s the most accurate thing to tell suspenseful interactive stories. Players will have a news app on their phones that informs them of the arrests they’ve made, a map-linked app.
Here they can track the live location of suspects, there will be a social media app where they can run viral campaigns and even a Zoom app for police interviews sitting at home. Tharoor hopes that through this idea, he will start a new trend and even those who do not play the game will be attracted towards it.
