Codename Cygnus
Play as a secret agent in an interactive fictional world inspired by old time serial radio dramas.
Codename Cygnus is a unique form of entertainment -- an interactive radio drama.


Seeing is NOT believing! Play with headphones for the full effect. Developed to be smooth and compatible with VoiceOver accessibility options for an entirely audio experience.


With either a spoken word or a simple tap on the screen you can progress through the story in multiple-choice dialogue moments like those you often find in adventure or RPG games. Your iPhone/iPad/iPod recognizes your speech (or accepts the tap of a button) to trigger and play the next sound file. Choose between options to accomplish your mission objectives and listen to the drama unfold as characters react to your decisions. Be the type of spy that you want to be in a world of action and intrigue!


Get ready to take on the nefarious Neptune, your first nemesis as a secret agent working for the mysterious agency known only as Cygnus. Diplomats are being held hostage at their consulate and intelligence indicates that it must be the work T.R.I.D.E.N.T. -- an organization whose passion for environmental causes borders on the fanatic. Can you uncover Neptune's plan and rescue the hostages? Tune in, secret agents, and find out!!
