Lexis Numerique has announced a realise date for their transmedia production, Alt-Minds. Converging of the worlds of TV, videogames and the internet to create a totally unique paranormal thriller, Alt-Minds offers a modern way to play interactive fiction. The more different media you use, the more twists to the plot will be revealed to you.
In Summer 2012 five young scientists working for the Alvinson Foundation disappear without leaving a trace. Manu, Alissa, Hisham, Sofia and Stanko were part of a research team named MHD6, working in the labs of the Belgrade University of Physics. Recent events would suggest a possible abduction. The foundation decides to carry out its own investigation and radically chooses to request the help of internet users. With the help of various technical tools, the users will contribute to the investigation, lend their support to the field teams, help save the scientists and possibly become the story’s heroes.
A mystery game for PCs/Macs and tablets, Alt-Minds is also a mobile app to help you keep up with the investigation and find secret locations thanks to the geolocalisation option. Combining reality and fiction in a totally unique way it subtly combines fiction and reality in order to immerse you deeply into the plot. On top of emails from some of the characters you can look for clues online, via Google or Facebook, choose whether or not to receive SMS messages or explore your own town in search of secret locations and even try to call one of the characters or even meet them.
Alt-Minds is a real time experience, which starts on the 5th November and lasts for eight weeks. The investigation will happen in real time, hour by hour, minute by minute. The missions you can take part in happen in a limited time frame. The real time option can be disabled at any time and you can make up for lost time if you have been away using a catch up mode. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about Alt-Minds.
