About

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 Experience Discover 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 Game Explore 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! —————————————————————————— Tributes To: Detective Fiction: In Unheard, all the clues in a case will be presented to players. There's no hidden information, nor rooms that require a key to enter. Players will be privy to the same information as everyone present at the crime scenes. Immersive Theater: All characters in Unheard have their own storylines; however, each of these storylines will become interwoven in the same space, and at the same time, resulting in complicated cases that force you to meticulously search for and track clues. You can choose to follow one character or move around between multiple characters. You can also replay the audio as many times as you want until you reach a conclusion. Radio Drama: Unheard is, in a way, an interactive radio drama. By combining aural narrative techniques with the type of exploration elements present in video games, Unheard offers a brand-new, non-linear radio drama experience. Special Thanks: Special thanks to our voice actors and directors in both China and the U.S. Thank you for your continued hard work and support.

Unheard reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Unheard https://youtu.be/8KCiZzvZepY This Review reflects my personal Opinion of the Game, please respect this, if you read my Review, you can happily say in the Comments how you feel about the Game yourself. I try to mention As few Spoilers as possible, but sometimes it can't be completely avoided, please think about it. This Review was written after which I completed the Game. Next Studio is a Chinese Quite young company that has already developed Successful Games like "Iris Fall" and "Bladed Fury," along with bilibili they have released their latest Offshoot on Steam called "Unheard." Story: There are different Stories at Unheard, or should I say Cases? A Young Lady, accompanies you throughout the game, who is she? Can you solve the Cases? Or do you fail because you didn't Listen? Gameplay: Your Job is to solve Cases where you listen to others. Throughout the Game you have 5 different Locations with different Characters, all of which play an important Role, your Job is to listen to them and right, because they will get you to your Destination at the end of each Case. You have to use the Narrative to find out who is called and what it has to do with the Case, who the Perpetrator was or the Victim. While Playing You have the Opportunity to write notes, pre-spit or rewind, you can move freely on the entire "mappe" and so Person Z can track, observe and listen and at will go to person A when Person Z has nothing left to Say What interests you. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1701008606 Soundtrack and Speaker: I really liked the Music, especially the Atmosphere that retains the whole Game from Start to finish. Very beautiful Piano Melodies. The Speakers are also very good, talking loudly, not too fast and very clear. The Voices are pleasant and it doesn't get boring to hear them. The complete Game is only English or Chinese, you should be able to understand one of these Languages well in any Case. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1701008554 Duration of the Game: With 5 Hours, the Game is not very long, depending on how good you are, it also goes faster. However, at the current €4.15, you can't expect much more. Whether the Game is replayable is up to yourself, it doesn't change the story, the Gameplay remains the same and the different Endings can be viewed on the first run, as it virtually Saves after the last Mission, so is a re-game for it Not necessary. Which I also think is good, because the Ends are not so spectacular now that you want to play the Game a total of 4x. Verdict: My absolute Favorite game is and will probably always remain "In Memoriam," unfortunately the Game was probably ahead of its Time, so it had no Chance. I find It all the more beautiful that we are always breaking new Ground, and Unheard Has also succeeded well for the Creators. Here it is easy to watch, good Listening and superior. However, since "Unheard" is only in Chinese and English and there are no Subtitles and probably never will be (at least not from the Creators), it will not be able To hit the masses here either. I recommend the Game to anyone who would like to try something New, but at least can do English well, because otherwise it will be too difficult to find the Solution in the End. The only Shortcoming I thought was a pity was that there are no Penalties if you "got" wrong at the end. For this I felt the Game very briefly and would have liked at least 2 or 3 more Locations, I would have liked to pay a little more for that. According to Publisher, there will soon be more Cases than DLC, which will be free, I am very excited about them.
