What is Chronicles of Crime about?
Chronicles of Crime is a cooperative game of crime investigation combining an app, a board game, and a touch of VR.
Players can play plenty of different scenarios utilizing the same physical components (board, locations, characters, items).
Players start the app, choose the scenario they want to play, and follow the story. The goal is to catch the murderer in the shortest time possible.
Based on the search scenario selected, each component (locations, characters, items, etc.) has a QR code that activates and triggers the story. Players will get new stories even after the game is released, simply by downloading the app’s updates, without any shipping of new physical components.
The VR experience only requires a mobile phone. Virtual reality glasses (optional buy) allow players to immerse themselves in the game’s universe and search for clues in a virtual world simply by putting them on their nose and holding their mobile device in front of them.
A tutorial and five scenarios come with the game, but you can download more inside the app!
Every session lasts between one and one and a half hours and many scenarios are linked together to tell a much larger story.
