“We’re honoured to have Unknown Number recognised on this international stage”, said Thomas Keane, Creative Director of godolphin games. “Our ambition has always been to kickstart the conversation about voice-control in games – and these awards will hopefully inspire other developers to start creating First Person Talkers of their own.”

The first game in an all-new genre called a “First Person Talker”, Unknown Number combines elements from action adventure, interactive story and Alternate Reality Games to create a high-octane gameplay experience. After receiving a call from a stranger, Unknown Number thrusts the player into a daring heist in the middle of the North Sea, and gives them a chance to save the world using nothing but their voice. An innovative voice-controlled adventure told entirely through interactive phone calls, players must talk, sing, whisper and shout their way through challenges and encounters, as well as using the in-game browser to navigate the web to solve a wide variety of puzzles.

In this genre-defying thriller, use your voice to…

  • NAVIGATE a maze-like oil rig under time pressure
  • DECODE cryptic passphrases to unlock treasure vaults
  • MANIPULATE henchmen into abandoning their guard posts
  • PLEDGE your allegiance to a creepy underground eco-movement
  • IMPERSONATE high-profile oil execs on conference calls
  • MAKE crucial moral decisions that impact the story
  • And of course, TELL your fair share of knock-knock jokes

Will you answer the call?
