Description

A point-and-click style noir that will make you question what it is to exist. 

 

 

“If you knew my mind you could never love me,” spoke Amy. Beckett was defiant, she was everything to him. Time has passed. Amy is dead. A missing persons case leads Beckett down a decaying rabbit hole to the outskirts of reality. Set in a world unlike anything you’ve experienced, this is an original surreal noir by The Secret Experiment. Take control. Explore. Navigate. Interact. Talk. Defy. Listen. Be careful. This place is unfamiliar. Make it your own.

The whole experience lasts around 3 hours. It will be in your head for a long time to come.

The surreal noir is to be showcased in The V&A, the world’s leading museum of art and design, who have hand-picked Beckett as an example of design excellence in storytelling and digital media.

Praise for Beckett:

“A rare example of total and genuine auteurism in the games world” – Glixel, Rolling Stone

“convincingly uncompromised” – Alphr

“Beckett impresses at every turn.” – Cubed3

“The Secret Experiment has done something extraordinary with its absurdist noir, Beckett. They have managed to conflate exploration of a town with exploration of the protagonist’s battered psyche. Shrewd use of text along with compelling visual and sound design results in an innovative and engrossing experience.” – Russell Lees, creator of The Dark Eye
