The trailer for the new game from Accidental Queens, Another Lost Phone, features “White Gloves” by Texan three-piece Khruangbin
Watch the trailer for Another Lost Phone the follow-up to A Normal Lost Phone:
In Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story players are tasked to find out what happened to Laura, a young woman who has apparently vanished without a trace. Stumbling on her lost phone, they need to discover what happened to her by uncovering crucial pieces of information and hidden passwords scattered among texts, apps, photo gallery and social networks. Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story explores different aspects of Laura’s troubled life, touching upon social themes usually not discussed in games, and should be instantly recognisable to fans of the original A Normal Lost Phone. The game features a completely new story, including new puzzles and new mysteries to solve.
“We knew the themes of homophobia and peer pressure we explored in our first game, A Normal Lost Phone, would move a lot of people, but we really didn’t anticipate the great impact it would have,” said Elizabeth Maler, co-founder of Accidental Queens. “Seeing the positive reactions from our community, we quickly made the decision that other important issues should be brought to the player’s attention. Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story follows the same format, but has a completely new story, with new puzzles and player interactions hidden in a narrative system that is both unique and instantly recognisable to anyone who has a phone.”
Another Lost Phone: Laura’s Story features songs licensed from influential music label WARP, including the track “White Gloves” by Khruangbin. Full details on pricing and the release date will be revealed in the near future.
About Accidental Queens:
Accidental Queens is a video game development studio founded by three women from the games industry: Diane Landais, Elizabeth Maler, and Miryam Houali. The studio expanded to promote the hit prototype of “A Normal Lost Phone”, created in 2016 during the Global Game Jam. The full version of the game launched in January 2017. The aim of the game is to find out everything possible about a character called Sam. By searching this complete unknown’s phone, gamers attempt to piece together what happened. Compared to “Her Story” and “Gone Home”, “A Normal Lost Phone” was hailed by gamers and press alike, selling more than 100,000 copies in less than three months.
Khruangbin is a three-piece band from Texas, with Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald “DJ” Johnson on drums. Blending surf rock, psychedelia, funk and soul, the band’s work would be right at home on a Tarantino soundtrack. Khruangbin literally means “engine fly” in Thai, a nod to sixties’ and seventies’ Thai funk, the band’s great source of inspiration, and to the international influences that permeate its music. “White Gloves” is the first vocal track for this previously instrumental-only band. The band started out and still records its music in a huge barn, deep in the Texas countryside in Burton, between Houston and Austin. Their first album “The Universe Smiles Upon You”, from which “White Gloves” is taken, came out two years ago, in November 2015.
