Press Release: Mystery At Mansfield Manor Brings Intrigue To The Internet

Toronto's SR Entertainment Inc. Unveils Online Interactive Murder Mystery Movie

TORONTO, July 11 /CNW/ - SR Entertainment Inc. is ready to test your deductive skills with the launch of its new website Mystery at Mansfield Manor. Mystery at Mansfield Manor is an online, live-action interactive murder mystery movie. Hailed as a unique blend of Clue(TM) and a choose-your-own-adventure movie, the mystery gets underway witha click of a mouse button.

"On the eve of his forced early retirement Detective Frank Mitchell is sent to Mansfield Manor to solve the murder of wealthy oil industrialist Colin Mansfield Sr. After arriving at the manor, the viewer begins to take control over his actions," says Rory Scherer, producer and screenwriter for Mystery at Mansfield Manor. "Essentially, the viewer takes on the role of the lead character, Detective Mitchell, and must solve the murder before the story's midnight deadline." is a unique business model: once the viewer visits the website, a 10 minute introduction video plays in which Detective Mitchell interrogates the first suspect, Anna Mitrov, the victim's maid. She reveals her version of the evening through flashbacks and the clues start to roll in. After the introduction, the viewer pays a nominal $4.99 fee to continue the game and receives 72 hours of unlimited access to the complete website, including a Bonus Materials section with a behind-the-scenes documentary and photo gallery.

Gameplay progresses as the player interrogates suspects and eventually arrests one. Some suspects lie, others are truthful. It is up to the player to decipher who is lying and what clues led them to that conclusion. In the grand tradition of the choose-your-own-adventure genre, multiple endings exist in the body of the two and a half hours of video time. Gameplay gets even more involving as some interactive components allow the viewer to become even more immersed in the investigation.
