FREEQ is an audio adventure game about eavesdropping and meddling with the future.The game turns your handheld device into an antenna that can pick up and hijack radio signals from the distant future. Spy on the last society on Earth, interfere with people's lives, and try to solve the mystery of what ended the world.
FREEQ uses a unique storytelling engine that allows players to influence the events of the future by choosing who speaks to whom, and when, and what information is shared with what sources. Written and performed in the style of classic radio dramas from the early twentieth century, FREEQ provides the audience an opportunity to lose themselves in a future no one ever imagined.
FREEQ is presented in un-subtitled English.

Quite a game
This one is really good for anyone who can hear the story for which you can determine the course. After playing through this 3 times, I'm still finding new possibilities. Don't let the fact that it's not been updated in quite a while fool you too much: I've not had any problems running it here. One thing to note though for those who rely exclusively on sound: Voiceover must be turned off in this case, and the home button faces to the right.
Definitely listen to more than once.
I've gone through it twice with two radically different endings and I can tell that there's still more of the story to learn. Way way too short, but I imagine it would get too confusing if it was longer. I really like the premise for this game and would love to see future attempts at the same kind of thing.
Unique and high quality interactive radio drama
At once a very modern use of a mobile device as well as a very retro style of radio-drama storytelling.
The audio storytelling itself is very high quality, which is central.
This game tries something interesting and does it well.
