Synopsis: Crown Heights, Brooklyn. When the clock strikes 8 pm the blood moon sets on the New York City skyline for an eerie night of mystery, murder, and spying. While on your fire escape, you witness the moments before and after a murder––in the building across the ally. When all the tenants become suspects, the building goes on lockdown. As the real-time clock ticks, players have to choose where and who to watch, for every detail you witness, you miss another––your choices affect how you see the truth. Peer into your neighbors’ apartments, discover their strange secrets, text your friend and respond to the calls from a threatening unknown caller. As you become entangled––who do you watch, what do you uncover, and how do you change the fate of your neighbors in this simmering crime.
