There are so many mobile games out on the market today, are there any that are different or unique? Yes and At The Voices’ End is one of them.
A quick overview: At The Voices’ End is an audio game about private detective Clive Burton, who has been in a serious car accident. He wakes up in a hospital, but can’t remember what happened. He is devastated. His eyesight is lost. With the help of psychiatrist Mrs Galway he tries to figure out what is going on.
This game has no graphics; everything in the game/story is audio only. When you first turn it on, the narrator will provide some basics on how to pause/quit/ save the game. This is a story based game where you will need to make decisions along the way. Since it is audio only, you really need to use some headphones.
Playing the game reminded me of those old fashion radio programs – all you could do is listen and use your imagination. The soundscapes were very, very well done and really made you feel like you are right there in the story. The characters, voices, background sounds were extremely realistic. The developer definitely put a lot of effort into this game.
This is not a fast game. This is a game where you really need to just sit, relax, and focus on the story. I found myself pausing it every once in a while to get some water, etc. but I really got into it. The more I listened, the more I wanted to find out what was happening. I found myself trying to get rid of all the surrounding noise so I can concentrate.
At The Voices’ End is a neat game. It is so refreshing to “play” a game that is different. This game is really very relaxing and uses a different part of your brain. This truly is a game you must experience. There is nothing I can say about the graphics, game interface, or game play since there is none. 🙂
Please go and try this audio only game today.
