    It ends way too soon and could really use a better backstory, but Alt-Frequencies is a simple and fun game that is totally worth playing for a unique new experience, and even more so if you have affection for FM radio.

    Overall, I found Alt-Frequencies provided some great commentary on how the media decodes the underlying truth and spoon feeds it to the public and how governments can step in to attempt to control the narrative. It was interesting seeing the introduction of rogue elements to the story and how those played out. This experience has a lot to say about a lot of things, which is really my criticism. I wanted so much more.

    Alt-Frequencies has a unique hook in its gameplay and story, with plenty of potential, but it skews towards being an all-too-brief mobile game rather than a full fledged adventure puzzle.

    Entertaining little timeloop thriller held back by its mechanical and storytelling limitations.

    A promising conspiracy that's over before it's begun.

    Despite its sci-fi hook, Alt-Frequencies is a painfully relevant story. It paints a troubling, sometimes true-to-life picture of how misinformation spreads, even when the facts exist just a few knob turns away. Major platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter are still grappling with radicalization and dangerous conspiracy theorists. Escaping forced time travel is the least of our worries. Faced with our reality, however, it feels like a quaint, even comforting alternative.
