Silent Streets: The Mocking Bird Brings Hands-on Detective Work to iOS Platforms on March 1

Independent developer Funbakers and independent games publisher Playdius today announced the launch date for Silent Streets: The Mocking Bird. Available on Mar. 1, 2018 exclusively for iOS devices and coming soon for Android devices, players can pre-order the first episode of the Silent Streets mystery saga on the App Store today for $2.99 USD. Making use of ARkit technology and story-driven game design choices, the Silent Streets saga introduces the next generation of mystery games — and finds players exploring the foreboding town of Snowport, leading an investigation into a series of bloody homicides in a chilling 19th century Victorian era murder mystery.
“We want to support premium, story-driven games — particularly, truly original titles that will encourage players to think and play outside of the box,” said Guillaume Jamet, Head of Publishing at Playdius. “With its gripping story and unique AR gameplay mechanics, Silent Streets: The Mocking Bird is a perfect follow up to Playdius’ recent release of the critically acclaimed mobile adventure title Bury Me, My Love.”
Silent Streets: The Mocking Bird Unique Features:
  • Hands-on Detective Work: As one of the first ARKit-powered titles to launch on mobile, Augmented Reality features call on players’ true detective skills as they investigate objects and places of interest to uncover clues and evidence.
  • Unforgettable Artwork: Minimalistic modern interface and design brings the game’s haunting Victorian era setting to life as players unravel the mysteries haunting the streets and back alleys of Snowport.
