I-play Announces Collaboration with Mystery Writer Charlaine Harris

Crimes by Moonlight: Mysteries from the Dark Side
More information about the book

In a press release e-mailed to us today, I-play, Oberon Media's publishing division and the world's leading multi-platform casual games publisher, announced an upcoming collaboration with Charlaine Harris, bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries that inspired HBO's hit show True Blood. The game, titled Dying For Daylight and set to release in early 2011, brings Harris's supernatural storytelling to interactive life for the very first time. The all-new original storyline features her popular character Dahlia Lynley-Chivers, a vampire heroine featured in many short stories by Harris.

"Taking a character into the world of games is great fun and allows us to tell stories and bring characters to life in a whole new way," says Harris. "Just like Sookie, Dahlia is a unique and multi-faceted character. Working with I-play to present her in this new way has been an amazing experience, and I can't wait to hear what fans think of the results."

"Charlaine's stories and characters are a huge contributor to the phenomenon surrounding all things supernatural right now," says Tony Leamer, VP Marketing at I-play. "Her writing is so vivid and her characters so interesting that they are a natural fit for a game. Dahlia is already beloved by a legion of fans and we hope they will love this new story and the way we're telling it."

Dahlia Lynley-Chivers most recently made an appearance in the short story "Dahlia Underground", which was published in the 2010 anthology Crimes by Moonlight: Mysteries from the Dark Side, edited by Charlaine Harris.
