Chronicles of Crime

Chronicles of Crime overview

Chronicles of Crime is a cooperative game of crime investigation, mixing an app, a board game and a touch of Virtual Reality.

With the same physical components (board, locations, characters and items), players will be able to play plenty of different scenarios and solve as many different crime stories.

Players start the app, choose the scenario they want to play, and follow the story. The goal being to catch the killer of the current case in the shortest time possible.

Using the Scan&Play technology, each component (locations, characters, items, etc.) has a unique QR code, which, depending on the scenario selected, will activate and trigger different clues and stories. That means players will be able to get new stories way after the game is released simply by downloading the app's updates, without any shipping of new physical components involved.

The VR experience only requires a mobile phone. Players simply put the VR glasses (optional buy) onto their mobile device, and put the VR glasses on their nose, holding their mobile device in front of their eyes, to immerse themselves in the game's universe and search for clues in a virtual world.

The game comes with 1 tutorial and 5 scenarios, but more can be downloaded directly inside the app!
Each session last around 1h to 1h30 minutes and many scenarios are connected to each others in order to tell a much bigger story.(Español)

Londres, en la actualidad. Acabas de dejar la oficina del Jefe de Policía. Un cuerpo ha sido hallado en Hyde Park, y tu jefe te acaba de asignar el caso. No es tu primera investigación, pero algo te dice que este caso no es como los demás. Centras tu cabeza, inicias la maquinaria y te diriges a la escena del crimen. ¡Es hora de trabajar!

Crónicas del Crimen es un juego cooperativo de investigación criminal. El uso de la tecnología Escanea & Juega mezcla los juegos digitales con los de tablero, permitiendo multitud de historias sobre investigación criminal utilizando los mismos componentes. ¡Interroga a los sospechosos, recoge pruebas, y arresta al asesino antes de que sea demasiado tarde!
