App description: Explore the dark mysteries of Victorian Snowport with Silent Streets, an augmented reality detective adventure. Play a private detective - inspect crime scenes with your phone camera, forge friendships with unforgettable characters, interrogate murder suspects, and bring justice to this grim hardcore world.

Enjoy an engaging interactive story - Silent Streets episodes are packed with subtle humour and loads of lore by Richard Cobbett, an accomplished games writer. Beautiful black and white art immerses you even deeper into the adventure.

Physically connect with your detective - Silent Streets is an augmented reality game, pedometer- and GPS-enabled. Every step you make in real life brings you closer to solving the big puzzle of Snowport.

Gather clues in the augmented reality mode - Ready for some forensics? Can you find that rusted key to the madmans lair? Point and click to collect, it could be lying right on your working desk...

Choose your own adventure - Do you want to go straight to the main suspects hideout, or gather extra intelligence first? The story is full of meaningful choices, and whatever path you choose, be prepared for unique encounters and side quests on your way!

Appreciate the sound of Snowport - Each role is voiced by a professional actor, and every location is breathing with 19th century Victorian ambience.

Build your hero - Silent Streets offers solid RPG elements, such as a reputation system and character ranks.

Dear fans of old-school detective stories, adventure games, interactive fiction and AR!
(and of course dear all who appreciate a good narrative

What are you thoughts on Silent Streets Episode 1, The Boy with the Flower Skin?
It's a Victorian murder mystery with augmented reality features, which we just released on iOS.
It's currently free but I'm not sure how long it will stay that.

Any feedback on the store page will be highly appreciated!
Will be happy to answer your comments and questions here as well

Thanks a million,
your Funbakers team

The gamebook thing looked sweet

The 'walk to travel' looked really odd, but hey, why not, points for trying something new.

The AR mode looked totally misplaced, in regards to the rest. That seems totally tacked on.


Looking forward to impressions, whether it actually fits together and I'm wrong, or...

Thanks Vonknut for sharing your thoughts.
Can you suggest any improvements to the AR 3D evidence search so that it makes a smoother experience for you?

We did get the same comment about AR camera a few times (though the general reaction is positive), so I can see where you're coming from! We wanted to step aside from the traditional 2D hidden-object evidence collection, which you get in casual detective games
Thanks!

Your impressions of walking vs timed challenges?

Hi everyone! From reading the yesterday's Silent Streets review in Engadget I got that timed challenges are much more fun that simply walking. What's your take on that?

Hi everyone,

Very excited to say that we are enhancing Silent Streets with Apple AR Kit technology.

You can take a sneak peek at a sample AR scene from Episode 2, The Mockingbird's Last Dive, here: https://youtu.be/n6xY0p-IjC4

As always, your feedback is most welcome!

Till soon,
