An Elmwood Trail tasks you with solving the case of a missing girl, out now on iOS and Android

Techyonic has officially announced the release of An Elmwood Trail, the indie studio's text-based RPG on iOS and Android. The interactive title tasks players with trying to solve the curious case of a missing girl named Zoey as they tackle challenging puzzles and dive into an intriguing narrative along the way.

In An Elmwood Trail, players will step into the role of a detective in the town of Riverstone with a "found phone" element to help them crack the case. The game features a realistic simulation of the missing girl's phone, as well as a distinct art style, voiced dialogues and brainteasing puzzles.

Players will get to the bottom of the mystery by interacting with people and gathering clues as to the whereabouts of the teenager, all while trying to piece together parts of the story to come up with a cohesive conclusion. Of course, you can't always rely on everything that a person says, so it's up to you to figure out who to trust.
