Game or Naught Look at Chronicles of Crime To Solve a Mystery

6 Comments

Over the last couple of years, tabletop gaming has been integrating smartphone tech into the gameplay experience. Predominantly, this has been to help game set up or to administrate player turns or health. Chronicles of Crime looks to move things forward by making their app a core element of the game itself.

Tasking your group of players with solving a mystery, Chronicles of Crime uses the app to give you suspect’s answers to questions, a place to scan (using QR codes) and store clues, as well as a way to ask a group of in-game characters for help with forensics, technology, science, or criminology. So far, so useful.

Where Chronicles of Crime stands out is that the app uses 360 degrees virtual reality to allow players to actually look around and observe the crime scenes. In turn, you will either find clues to help your investigative team or possibly overlook something crucial. The app turns this into a legitimate game of police inspection.

If you are at UKGE, or not, it is definitely worth checking Chronicles of Crime out for yourself.

It looks quite good but i’m still not convinced about games that require external electronics to function based on the amount of time i spend on old boardgames, minigames and books all of which still work, but the hassle it is to play old video games where the device they were designed for no longer functions (places like GOG help but it’s not straightforward).

but if your the sort of person who doesn’t go back to old stuff then its certainly well worth a look
