Interference: Dead Air is a narrative-driven sci-fi thriller where all the danger is miles away. It looks like another quiet night in your isolated desert outpost, monitoring the mysterious happenings of the top-secret research facility you're paid minimum wage to protect. However, the night quickly turns deadly when a security breach throws the facility into chaos, trapping your best friend Valerie inside—the same best friend with whom you've spent the last few hours arguing, of course! Armed with only a shortwave radio and the items scattered around your booth, will you put aside your differences and help Valerie survive? Or will you go radio-silent? It's up to you.


Interference: Dead Air began as an experiment in player autonomy: how do you construct a game whose narrative is not dependent upon the player's participation? With loads of branching dialogue, numerous playstyles, and the freedom to just kick back, relax, and ignore all the narrative elements we've spent years carefully crafting, Interference: Dead Air is a game about player choice. Maybe you'll opt to just observe. Or perhaps you'll decide to... interfere.


  • ACTIONS MATTER: Every decision you make (or don't make) is valid. Wanna be an asshole? Sure. A pushover? Go for it! Or you can just turn off your radio. We won't stop you.
  • BE RESOURCEFUL: Monitor your radio, computer, and map to lead Valerie to safety. Prioritize as you please.
  • FULLY VOICE-ACTED: Engage with a cast of unique and lifelike characters that realistically respond to you and remember everything you say. Everything.
  • TUNE OUT: Your booth is outfitted with all sorts of distractions. Shoot a few hoops, unwind with a relaxing word search puzzle, or dive in to the mystery of what's really going on at the facility.
  • ATMOSPHERIC SETTING: The desert is spooky, mysterious, and kinda lonely... the perfect place to contemplate your worldly insignificance!
  • BUMPIN' BEATS: The 80s called, they want their synthesizers back. Immerse yourself in a fully original soundtrack by Rosefinch.
  • REPLAYABILITY: No two playthroughs are exactly alike in this branching narrative adventure that unfolds in real-time.
