Project QUESTION is a murder mystery game in which the players take control of a detective named Detective Kevin. By analyzing the clues in the environment, interrogating suspects and catching contradictions, the players must solve a complex murder case that has shaken the city by its very foundations.
By utilizing ARCore technology, we have managed to deliver a far more immersive experience for players to put themselves in the shoes of a detective. Now, they don't just play as a detective, they get to feel what it's like to be in the situation!
The game was a finalist under the Virtual Reality category in the Rookie Awards 2018.
