You're a homicide detective in 1970's New York, tasked with solving the disappearance of an aspiring model. There's only one problem - if you're in 1970's New York, how are you on the internet? While you struggle to escape my powerful logic, allow me to introduce you to Unsolved Crimes, a crime investigation game for the Nintendo DS, coming this fall from Empire Interactive. The game combines action gameplay with 3D investigation and some sort of crime quiz to help you unravel the mystery of a model's disappearance in 1970's New York. The game features more that 8 different crimes to solve in this rather unique setting, back in the days when CSI did all the work while The Who played in the background. I suppose The Who could still factor in, but don't expect that DNA evidence you sent to the lab to be back for another couple of decades.
Crime Investigation Makes Its Way To Nintendo DS™ In Empire Interactive's Unsolved Crimes It's up to Players to Solve a Mysterious Disappearance in 1970s New York AUSTIN, Texas - July 28, 2008 Empire Interactive, a wholly owned subsidiary of Silverstar Holdings (NASDAQ: SSTR), today announced that the mystery solving game, Unsolved Crimes, will surface in the U.S. on Nintendo DS™ this fall. The absorbing and character-driven adventure experience will integrate players in the thrills of an action game with the mental challenges of a 3D crime investigation. In Unsolved Crimes, players will take the role of a rookie detective as part of the New York police department homicide division. An aspiring model, Betsy Blake, has disappeared and a social outcast and loner is the prime suspect. The case is a lot deeper than it appears on the surface. Crime is rampant in the city and Blake's disappearance is the latest in a frightening series of events that are slowly bringing New York to its knees. The local police department is having a hard time cracking the case and Blake's safe return lies in the detectives' hands to solve the mystery before it's too late.

The game fully utilizes the DS' unique Dual Screen, allowing players to immerse themselves in the New York environments. The innovative use of the stylus will allow players to trace marks, routes and memos on suspicious items discovered at crime scenes, all allowing players to move closer to solving the kidnapping mystery. The engaging storyline runs throughout the game, fully immersing players in the world of Unsolved Crimes with more than eight independent cases to solve in the diverse and fully interactive environments.
