2 minute mysteries on Kickstarter
Rory Scherer, the mind behind Mystery At Mansfield Manor (an interactive murder mystery movie) has launched a Kickstarter project for an interactive multi-screen product called 2 Minute Mysteries.
There are two prototypes available to play now for free. One can be played individually on its website, but the other prototype is much more fun as you can play it in a group setting. The episodes will play on a large screen and you interact with them using a smartphone or tablet. The person with the highest score at the end wins.
You can back 2 Minute Mysteries on KickStarter right now.
