History

Husband and wife team Emma Ramsay and Andy Yong co-founded True Crime Games in 2018. Andy has over 20 years experience as an artist/animator, 10 years within the games industry. Emma's background is in production, marketing and communication. As fans of true crime, history and games, they combined these elements into an interactive, augmented reality experience – the first of its kind worldwide.

Developed and released with assistance from Film Victoria, their second game Eastern Market Murder launched May 2021 as part of Melbourne Knowledge Week.

Future Aspirations

Future games in the series will depend on where the most mysterious true historical crimes take the developers - Sydney, London and New York are all on the cards.
