You found the lost phone of a woman named Anna. In it, you see a desperate cry for help in the form of a video message. The phone behaves strangely as you dive deeper into it. You talk to her friends and they have no idea where she is. Her texts, emails and photo gallery provides fragments of information. It's up to you to piece it together.
Recover lost files, piece back corrupted data, and retrace her final steps. Find her before it's too late.

We exclusively reveal WIST (Wales Interactive Scripting Tool) in this month's Edge Magazine. Its our in-house tool we've been developing over the last year to help us create the interactive story games and films we've become known for publishing. WIST enables writers to easily create interactive story scripts that can be played in text form before we go into full production. The WIST file created also drives the development process from early concept through to production and even creating the multi platform versions. If you're interested in producing interactive, non-linear stories for games, films or any other media, you will definitely want to pick up issue E336, on sale now. A big thank you to Jen Simpkins who interviewed us at E3 for this outstanding 4-page feature 🙏

We feel very fortunate to be part of the global games industry and still after all these years love making and selling the games! 😀

BRIDGEND, UK, APRIL 8 2018 – Wales Interactive is proud to announce a collaboration with Superstring to release the FMV/Adventure hybrid game Headspun for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch this summer.
After waking from a five week coma, Theo Kavinsky finds his life in disrepair, and with no memory of the accident, it’s up to Ted and Teddy – the conscious and subconscious voices in his head – to work out what happened, and put his life back on track.
Combining live-action storytelling with elements of Adventure, Headspun puts players in the shoes of Ted: the Director of Cortex - the rational, intelligent voice in Theo's head. What Ted thinks is best for Theo isn’t necessarily a view shared by Teddy, however, the primal, subconscious voice. In the process of repairing Cortex, re-hiring a team and finding out what happened the night of the accident, Ted and Teddy must cast aside their differences and learn to work together.
