End game interactive narrative

I saw this posted to the Interactive Narrative Linkedin group. The project is a nice addition to a TV series. An online adventure that uses Facebook – you see one of your friends kidnapped then you help solve the crime. The detective and characters from the show address you directly. The puzzle solving is very simple with lots of hints and help built-in. The puzzles follow the familiar assemble photo’s, look at a computer desktop, click on objects in a room. But the drawing of images from you Facebook friends, although an old trick, is nicely done and has a touch of humour. Overall this is pitched perfectly as a quick enjoyable adjunct to the TV show. It makes me wish Facebook connect had been around when we made the ARG Jamie Kane and the online drama Signs of Life for the BBC.
