Alt-Frequencies is an audio narrative game set in a time loop. The player experiences the game through a fictional radio set that allows recording and broadcasting interactions to expose radio hosts, conspiracy theorists and politicians.
- The audio artistical direction is centered around the plurality of radio identities. Jingles, musical backgrounds, voice mixing and ambient sounds are designed to create a specific tone and atmosphere for each station and context. Amongst these are the highly compressed voices and EDM-heavy jingles of Fresh FM, the serious and solemn headline drums of News One, the analogue-sounding Pickup Frequency conversations, the mysterious, glitchy field recordings of Pirate Station and the low-budget microphones of Campus Radio.
- As the game is accessible to visually impaired players, UI, feedback, narrative and aesthetic content were designed to be diegetic, easily understandable yet emotionally enticing for a complete audio experience.
