You'll be given seven posters each with a QR code on them. These seven posters correspond to seven locations in the city you can explore to find suspects and clues. Simply scan the QR codes to enter the locations. Posters can be placed around your living or church hall - or if you really want to have fun, around city!
About The Game
Murder in the Shadows is a mixed reality game. This means that while it is played primarily on a mobile phone, it involves interacting with the world around you and is designed to facilitate rich interactions between players. Learn more about the gameplay here.
The narrative of Murder in the Shadows crosses paths with the account of Jesus' arrest and crucificion. As you play the game with your friends, you are softly introduced to the story of Jesus, opening opportunities for you to start a conversation with your friends.
You can play with neighbours in your society or coordinate a large outreach event with your youth group. You can set up the game in your living room or across your city. It's up to you!
All you need to play the game are some posters with QR codes (read more about gameplay here) and a mobile phone. Our platform handles the rest. Simply invite your friends and have fun!
Launching 20th April, 2019
Once you've entered a location, you'll see a number of people and objects you can interact with. Click on charactres to talk to them and click on objects to find out how they relate to your case.
The main way you'll find clues to help you solve the case will be interacting with the characters in each location. Click on a character to start talking to them via chat. Ask them questions about the murder or about suspicious objects you've found. Be careful: not everyone's friendly!
