What happens when everyone is stuck in the same time loop, without knowing? Alt-Frequencies is an audio-based game, revolving around radio stations that reset every 3 minutes. Populated with all sorts of different characters and personalities, players get an intimate look into the lives of radio hosts, conspiracy theorists, students, politicians, underground activists, train station managers - and a dog. By redistributing information, you change what happens in the next 3 minute time loop and impact both news cycles and the lives of the people behind them. Listen as their personal stories evolve, in a world that seems to stand still.

Overall, I found Alt-Frequencies provided some great commentary on how the media decodes the underlying truth and spoon feeds it to the public and how governments can step in to attempt to control the narrative. It was interesting seeing the introduction of rogue elements to the story and how those played out. This experience has a lot to say about a lot of things, which is really my criticism. I wanted so much more.
Overall we thought that Alt Frequencies could have done with a bit more time to breathe, as we were initially intrigued by the ideas laid out in terms of the technique for deploying narrative and the time loop policies, but the story was over before it even started. It was a good idea but we didn't see the potential come to fruition, unfortunately, especially when it came to the gameplay mechanics to progressing the story.
Alt-Frequencies ist ein nettes kleines Spiel, das vor allem auf Smartphones funktioniert, wo man auch mal die kurzen Musikstücke des gefälligen anhört, während man das Telefon in der Tasche verschwinden lässt. Grundsätzlich passt es daher besser auf die mobilen Plattformen als auf den PC – so oder so erwartet euch jedenfalls ein unterhaltsamer kleiner Thriller mit interessanten Entscheidungen, die den wesentlichen Verlauf der Geschichte aber nicht beeinflussen.
