An Untapped Genre?

Live-action interactive games are not new if we’re being specific. But they’ve generally been very surface level, and uninteresting experiences. Who Pressed Mute on Uncle Marcus? aims to change this tide with a more detailed investigative focus for the gameplay. Will this be the game that finally showcases the full depth of such games or will it be left to sit among other similar games that tried something new but didn’t connect? We will have to wait and find out in time.
