this HAD to have been inspired by oxenfree, right?
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Android
An audio mystery set in a time loop. Record, rewind time and broadcast snippets of radio shows to expose radio hosts, conspiracy theorists and politicians.
Alt-Frequencies is an audio-based game, revolving around radio stations that reset every 3 minutes. Populated with all sorts of different characters and personalities, players get an intimate look into the lives of radio hosts, conspiracy theorists, students, politicians, underground activists, train station managers - and a dog.
By redistributing information, you change what happens in the next 3 minute time loop and impact both news cycles and the lives of the people behind them.
Listen as their personal stories evolve, in a world that seems to stand still.
- A new kind of narrative game that blurs the lines between the fantastical and the everyday while examining our relationship with mainstream media through the prism of radio stations.
- Built-in accessibility features that make the game available to a wide range of people - including blind and visually impaired players.
- Brought to life by a diverse cast of 20+ amazing voice performers, including TV, podcasts and YouTube personalities such as Jasika Nicole (Fringe, Welcome to Night Vale).
- By Accidental Queens, the studio behind the critically acclaimed A Normal Lost Phone and Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story, and co-produced with ARTE, the European cultural network.

Seeing Jasika Nicole in the description pushed right over the buyer's edge. Look's like a really cool game! That and I have not played a game with time loops and radios since Oxenfree.
Though I bought it and only have access to the radio_gold_s27_drmfree_1.2.apk Android file, and I'm currently rocking a Mac device. Help!
There are pricing tiers: $4.99 USD for the Android version only and $7.99 USD for Android + Desktop versions.
I don't know why Itch only displays the lowest price first, you have to see the "Purchase" section for pricing details...
