Electric Noir Studios has now set a date for its upcoming iOS and Android crime mystery game, Dead Man’s Phone, and it’s coming at the end of the month on 30th March.
In it, you play as a London detective who investigates and solves murders using the victims’ smartphones. You search through personal messages, photos, and other apps for clues, and then use this knowledge to direct your police team on the ground.
You also conduct interrogations using video chat, and can receive calls and follow news headlines too which will help to find the culprit.
As a homicide detective you’ll see lives go in reverse.

Dead Man’s Phone is a live-action game, using a large range of actors to portray the different characters through this phone interface. To make the game feel much more realistic, Electric Noir has also consulted with a real homicide detective, DS Simeon Cryer, to help with the story. Cryer also plays your detective partner in the game, DCI Sutherland.
