How many games cast you as a radio DJ with a call-in show? We'd wager not too many, but Killer Frequency goes one better and makes you a pseudo-detective for good measure. This unusual new game from Team 17 is coming to PS5 and PS4 on 1st June 2023, and it has us intrigued.
Playing as Forrest Nash, a radio DJ in 1980s America, you present a late-night show called The Scream. It also just so happens a serial killer is on the loose in the area. During the radio show, it falls to you to take calls from listeners, gather clues about the murderer, and try to prevent your audience from being killed off.
Speaking to a caller will give you various conversation options, which may lead to useful clues and information about the killer. When you're off the phone, you can explore the studio to piece things together and solve puzzles as you crack the case. On top of all that, the show must go on — you'll also need to select and play music tracks, all of which are inspired by the era.
It sounds like a really interesting blend of different influences. We're certainly curious to play this when it arrives in the summer, but what do you think? Are you interested in Killer Frequency? Send in your thoughts in the comments section below.
Tbh I'll buy anything Team17 does. I think they do some really unique stuff. I'll be trying this out for sure.
Looks really interesting

It's certainly a great idea for a video game, I'm interested.
This looks super cool. Just might pick it up on sale since it’s in June of all months.
This sounds original. Good stuff. I’ll stick this one on a wishlist.
@HMazzy111 Don't say that out too loud, or they'll bring back their MetaWorms NFT's.
Sounds intriguing. Think it will be a fun party game to solve together and rock that 80s music
It actually looks like a great idea.
Its funny though. Mel Gibson just made a film, where he's a late night radio host which a killer phones in and ends up in the building playing games with him. I won't spoil the twists and turns but worth a watch if bored, not an amazing film but definitely worth the watch.
Its called on the line. Pretty sure its on prime.
Definitely gonna give this game ago though.
I would have been interested, if there as an option to play as the killer.
