Who Pressed Mute On Uncle Marcus? is an upcoming FMV murder mystery, now available for pre-order on iOS
Wales Interactive’s upcoming murder mystery FMV, Who Pressed Mute on Uncle Marcus? has officially begun pre-orders today. This joint venture between Wales Interactive and Good Gate Media will hit the virtual shelves on March 18th, releasing on mobile, consoles, and PC. With a star cast, this game is bound to be a thriller.
Taking the centre stage is Uncle Marcus, who is played by Andy Buckley, best known for playing the role of David Wallace on The Office. The story takes place during the annual family quiz which is held on Abby’s mother’s birthday. It’s an occasion she looks forward to because it’s the only time the eccentric family bands together. Things, however, take a dark turn as someone wants to silence Uncle Marcus for good.
It’s a race against time and only Abby’s mum can save her uncle because he has been poisoned. She must question all the family members by using the on-screen choices and also gather evidence. If it's an inside job, someone must still have the poison on them. As players proceed through the game, they will keep learning more about this mysterious case and will find clues that point to the killer. The game will be divided into rounds and at the end of each round, players will be able to review each character’s evidence to determine their innocence.
If the player is satisfied and knows who poisoned Uncle Marcus, they can accuse the member as long as there is enough evidence to support the accusation. There’s no surety that the allegation will turn out to be correct but each character has a unique story which will be revealed at the end of the game.
The FMV was shot during the lockdown in London and Los Angeles and features Andy Buckley (The Office and Jurassic World), Abigail Hardingham (Nina Forever and The Missing), Susannah Doyle (Black Mirror, Drop The Dead Donkey and About A Boy), Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time and Pinocchio), Georgia Small (Five Dates) and Al Weaver (The Complex).
