Overview: Each episode consists of a 6 to 8 minute video, interactive hotspots and pop up clues, an interactive discovery experience and a classic trivia game. There are 40 Pop Up Clues placed throughout the series. Each time you watch an episode you will receive a different clue. Clues are also randomized across the audience so that each person will receive clues in a different order. One of those clues unlocks exclusive mobile content.
These clues are the pages of Evan’s private art journal. Each Image contains a number of clues that deepen the story’s plot line.
The Trivia Game: The trivia game is a classic casual gaming experience with over 70 questions per episode. Questions are based on keen observation, knowing our characters profile pages, and searching the net for answers to more obscure facts. The video clues are interview snippets of Randall’s documentary about the Dante.
Description: Jessica, a newcomer to the City of Angels, has just moved into a loft on the eighth floor of The Dante, a historic and eerie downtown building filled with friendly twenty-something neighbors who eagerly welcome her into their bohemian world. Or do they?
As Jessica races to unravel the mystery behind a chain of horrifying deaths that only she seems to see, she’ll come face-to-face with the chilling truth behind her connection to The Dante. Join her and her hot neighbor, Evan, in ten intense episodes that offer multiple levels of interaction, including hidden clues, mobile content, an online game and exclusive material that builds the back story of the characters and their relationships and gives the audience the chance to affect their futures.
