What if you could hear every word spoken at the scene of a crime?
Unheard is an indie simulation game made by NEXT Studios and published by NEXT Studios & bilibili. Put on your headphones and step back into the past. Use the voices you hear to return to crime scenes, tracking down each individual involved and solving the cases. But where do the voices come from? Can you trust what you hear? And what’s the mysterious thread weaving all of these cases together? There are five chapters with full Chinese and English voices in the first version, and meanwhile developers are planning to make a free DLC in a couple of months to update.

- Step through time as you use our device to eavesdrop on conversations from past crime scenes.
- Every clue, every move, and every motive will be presented in the form of audio.
- Rather than controlling any one character, you only need listen to their conversations, following along as the story evolves.
- Use the information you hear to match names to voices and determine how everything (and everyone) is related.
Unheard is an Open-Ended Narrative Mystery Game. You play as an omniscient detective walking through a case invisible to the world and can replay the case each time to listen to all the suspects involved. Explore the story and piece together the puzzle in your own way! Don’t expect to be “fed” a pile of clues. Rather, take the role of a fly on the wall, observing and listening to the events as they unfold. By listening to each character, you'll be able to assign identities to each of them and eventually answer the questions that solve the mystery. Anyone could be the culprit; key clues may be revealed at any second; any character's storyline may cross paths with another at any point in time. YOU be the editor—the order of the story is up to you! If you're looking for a fun deduction game, I recommend this. It's cheap, and the developer is apparently planning free DLC for the game in the future, adding to the value of what you already get.
