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.

Unsolved Crimes will bring a new level of gaming excitement to the Nintendo DS integrating the thrills of an action game with the mental challenges of a 3D crime investigation.

Recently crime based action/puzzle solving games like 'Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney,' 'CSI: Dark Motives' and 'Hotel Dusk: Room 215' have been very popular with Nintendo DS gamers. Unsolved Crimes will appeal to this audience as well as to those who enjoy puzzle solving and logic games on their Nintendo DS.

In Unsolved Crimes, players take on the role of a young rookie detective in the homicide division who, along with a partner, must solve the mysterious kidnapping of aspiring model Betsy Blake. Set in a stylized 1970s New York, it is up to you to separate the truth from lies and try to find Betsy before it's too late.

The game takes advantage of the unique dual screen of the Nintendo DS, allowing players to immerse themselves in the environments of New York. Players will be able to enter this world, move about, find clues at crime scenes, solve puzzles and answer questions. The innovative use of the Nintendo DS stylus will also allow the player to trace marks, routes and memos on suspicious items discovered at crime scenes, allowing players to advance to solving the kidnapping mystery.

In addition to the on-going and developing kidnapping case, players also must solve a series of eight independent cases. There are also five action games related to the kidnapping storyline to undertake.

Empire Interactive will be responsible for distributing Unsolved Crimes worldwide, except Asia, expected in the second half of calendar 2008.
