Using the same set of physical components (a board and cards representing locations, characters, and items), the Chronicles of Crime app lets you and your friends step into a world of mystery and play out your investigations.
Launch the app, select the scenario you want to play, and reveal a story built from your choices as you pursue your goal: uncover the clues behind the crime, chase the evidence, and find the killer as quickly as possible.
Using the game’s Scan&Play technology, each physical component has a unique QR code which can unlock different clues and events--if the players are paying close enough attention. Additional original scenarios will be available after the release of the physical game via app updates, with no new or additional physical components required.
The game’s VR experience requires only a mobile phone: Players put the VR glasses provided onto their mobile device, then raise them in front of their eyes to immerse themselves in the game's universe and search for clues in a virtual world.
Each game session should last 60 to 90 minutes, and players will find some scenarios connected to others, revealing a larger mystery to be solved...

Fun game, make sure your battery is full
This game devours your battery like no tomorrow. If you plan on playing, make sure you have at least 75% charge.
App developers: if you change the design to only access the camera when needed instead of keeping it on 100% of the time, you will fix this. In an hour of playing the camera is only actually used for what, a minute? You’re keeping the camera open for a whole hour and it’s caused me to have to stop playing part way through because it killed my battery.
No camera access
The new version never requests access to the camera! You cannot even grant it access via the Privacy menu in Settings as apps only show up after they have requested access. Help!!
**EDIT** Found it only requests camera access during the tutorial. If you try to skip it (as I did) it will never request camera access.
So much potential but...
Wanted to like this game, its well written and execution is nearly there. The main problem is often you will connect all sorts of information and potentially know the solution but may not know the exact steps to get there. What this game really needs is a hint function for things that are critical steps for leading to the next part. Often times you need to ask something specific to get more critical information and that one small detail can derail you. There needs to be a better solution guide too after you solve the case. My suggestion would be specific key steps that would be green and showing if you completed it, and red if it was missed with a hint, and ???? If you didnt get that far yet like something like this below.
Ask so and so about this clue (complete)
Maybe you need more info at location B
This game requires too many specific steps without enough guidance or ways to ease that specificity.
