Wales Interactive and Good Gate Media have today announced WHO PRESSED MUTE ON UNCLE MARCUS?, their latest FMV interactive game.
From the studios that brought you The Complex, Five Dates, Night Book, and Bloodshore, WHO PRESSED MUTE ON UNCLE MARCUS? is an eccentric FMV murder mystery with a twist which was directed by Award-winning filmmaker Steven Sheil (Mum & Dad) during lockdown with stars, Andy Buckley (The Office, Keeping Company, Jurassic World) as Uncle Marcus, Abigail Hardingham (Nina Forever, The Missing), Susannah Doyle (Black Mirror, Drop The Dead Donkey, About A Boy), Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time, Pinocchio), Georgia Small (Struck, Five Dates) and Al Weaver (Colette, Peterloo, The Complex).
The game takes place at Abby’s mum’s yearly family quiz to celebrate her birthday. It’s a long-held tradition, one that brings the whole rich and eccentric family together – and one that Abby dreads.
But this year’s quiz comes with a shocking difference… as it’s about to begin, her beloved Uncle Marcus tells her that he’s dying – and someone in the family has poisoned him. Abby is the only one he can trust… It’s up to you to find out who the murderer is before it is too late.
Dr David Banner MBE, Executive Producer/Co-Founder, Wales Interactive said: “We’re proud to kickstart our 2022 slate of interactive movies with WPMOUM, a quirky murder mystery, co-produced by Good Gate Media, and developed with our in-house narrative tool WIST (Wales Interactive Scripting Tool). As fans of The Office (U.S.) we couldn’t be happier to have the hilarious Andy Buckley on-board as well as some familiar FMV fan favourites from the likes of Five Dates and The Complex.”
Good Gate Media Producer and Founder, John Giwa Amu said: “Uncle Marcus is Good Gate’s first adventure into the murder mystery genre and it’s been great to craft our sixth title with Wales Interactive. Award-winning director Steven Sheil has put together an incredible cast and we’re excited for the audience to unpick the riddle piece by piece.”
