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?
