The episodic FMV title MISSING: An Interactive Thriller is out now on Mac. The title, which is set in the style of 90′s full-motion-video games (a more recent example would be Her Story) is already out on Steam, and has been discounted in celebration of the Mac launch.
MISSING seeks to marry live-action video (shot not in low, VCR quality of Her Story or the older titles the style references, but in a more dynamic/cinematic style) with point-and-click adventure games. It’s not a standard FMV in the way we’d recognize, but it utilizes several of the tropes. The trailer promises a “TV-like” experience with smooth transitions.
The story follows Detective Lambert as he explores several mysterious disappearances, which you must solve using a combinations of puzzles and light exploration. It seems to be heavily reliant on the elements of the thriller that it’s referencing, so if that’s not your cup of tea you might want to pass on this.
MISSING: An Interactive Thriller is currently out on Steam, where you can currently by the first episode for a $1.59 (60% off) for the week.
