Solve a spine-tingling murder case in 19th century Melbourne in this Augmented Reality (AR) true crime game.

In 1899 at Melbourne’s vibrant Eastern Market, a sudden attack on a popular fortune-teller left her husband violently murdered. The culprit? A phrenologist with a steadfast defence, who will get away with the grisly murder if not proved wrong. Investigate this spine-tingling true crime as you explore crime scenes, question witnesses and collect evidence to reclaim justice for the victim's family. Blood red radishes, a business rivalry, whispers of false friends – when everything is not as it seems, will you foresee how it ends?

About True Crime Games

Husband and wife team Emma Ramsay and Andy Yong co-founded True Crime Games in 2018. As fans of true crime, history and games they combined these elements into interactive augmented reality games – the first of their kind worldwide and playable from home or at the actual crime scenes in Melbourne, Australia. Their small and mighty team won the Victorian History Award for Digital Storytelling in 2020 and are finalists in the 2021 AGDA’s for Excellence In Mobile Games and Accessibility.
