What happens when everyone is stuck in the same time loop, without knowing?
Alt-Frequencies is an audio mystery game where you use the airwaves to open the world’s eyes to the truth. Record, rewind time and broadcast snippets of radio shows to expose radio hosts, conspiracy theorists, politicians, underground activists - and a dog.
By redistributing information, you change what happens in the next 3 minute time loop and impact both news cycles and the lives of the people behind them.
Listen as their personal stories evolve, in a world that seems to stand still.

Ratings and Reviews
This game is built on an amazing concept, it reminds me a little bit of Oxenfree. The problem is that the game is so short. I feel like there could have been a lot of world building and character development, it even feels like there was some stuff set in place that just never got finished as story lines before the game was released. I thought with a time loop mechanic there would be multiple endings, but there isn’t much replayability to the game. It’s worth the five bucks, but if you’re looking for a game to sink some time into, this ain’t it.
The concept is lovely and the gameplay was so unique! I appreciate the fast forward option and also the little bits of flavor text hidden in different places. The game is quite short, but it makes up for it with its replay-ability (pun intended).
I hope we get some sort of longer version or a sequel someday because I felt myself get quite attached to a few of the characters. I wished I could help them more with their lives.
Original gameplay, interesting story and likable cast. Pulled at my heartstrings at the end.
I’ve been anticipating this game for awhile now, so it’s a bit disappointing that it feels more like a proof of concept than a fully fleshed-out story.
Took about 2-3 hours for me, which is... fine. But even after redoing a pivotal decision in the middle and trying several different recordings to change it without success, the ending was abrupt with unresolved plot points.
