You’re in the middle of a life-long murder mystery

In the pioneering live-action cinematic experience, your decisions will shape the fate of Erica, a young woman who’s thrust into the middle of a murder mystery that’s somehow connected to her family’s history and the traumatic events that impacted her childhood.

As she meets a growing cast of old family friends and new acquaintances, you must separate fact from fiction, truth from lie to decide what is the real story that ties past and present together.

You decide how the story unfolds

Use your Dualshock 4 controller’s touchpad or the touchscreen of your mobile device* to dramatically shape your relationships in Erica’s multi-branching narrative. Dialogue choices will unfold seamlessly on screen as part of the ongoing conversation. Be warned though: you have limited time to decide how to respond.

You decide how you interact with the world

You can physically interact with your surroundings, and with a great degree of finesse. Carefully place a record player’s needle onto a vinyl, rapidly wipe the condensation off a mirror. Slowly peek through doors to spy on people unseen..

Your story, your fate

Erica plays out as a live-action experience shaped by your actions. Any one choice can lead to a different perspective on the events surrounding Erica’s current dilemma and you can find yourself in wholly unique situations. As such, there are many ways this story can end. How it does is up to you.

Can’t find the ERICA Companion App anywhere.

Me neither, guess they couldnt get it out at the same time as the game, really stupid. It works well with the touchpad on the dualshock tho

I just finished it with the touchpad, but will try with the app too when it comes out. Great interactive story.

Not surprised. Happened with a bunch of PlayLink games too. For Melbits it took them weeks.
