…there’s also an online game working in tandem with the Well. Challenges take place within the spooky atmosphere of an early ‘Resident Evil’ installation, and rather than acting as a mere companion to the show, the surprisingly impressive depth of play serves to further develop the plot of the programme itself.
For the past 6 months Splinter have busily been developing the games for Conker Media’s multi-platform digital fiction event, The Well; created for BBC Switch.
The Well aired on BBC Two on Saturday afternoons and extended online where the audience immerse themselves further in the story – exploring a spookily-atmospheric recreation of the main drama location in a multi-level game. By engaging in a series of tasks and challenges the audience unlock hidden drama content which reveals the backstory to the TV drama.
Are you good at mini-games? Do you think you can beat the hag? Then have a go at The Well game, over on the BBC site.
