A Midsummer night’s advergame
7NK Murder Mystery Game (by Littleloud) is a gothic horror story inspired to Shakespeare’s plays. The BBC has just launched it to support its Shakespeare drama season this autumn. At the moment only a preview is available, but the game full game will be online from next week. As explained on New Media Age (reg. req.) players will be asked to solve and prevent crimes based on Shakespeare’s plots.
A comprehensive mini-site is online to support the BBC “Shakespeare – Re-Told’ series of TV and radio programs”. Of course there is also space for some user generated content: a competition invites schoolchildren to write their own 60 second interpretation of a Shakespeare story to appear on the site.
