If you’re unaware of what Duskwood is, it’s an interactive thriller played using a combination of live-action segments and a fake phone interface to tell the story of a kidnapping. You are the detective trying to solve the crime, using a WhatsApp-style chat screen to advance the story while also using other multimedia content such as voice notes, photos and other apps to solve puzzles and find clues.
