On Sunday, I received word from Kess Crystal, Marketing Director of the innovative in-world game development outfit MadPea Games, about their new game / hunt entitled Blood Letters, which will be their first foray in adult-themed games. This is a change from what we’ve been used to seeing from MadPea Games, because their offerings so far have been designed in such a manner that they could remain PG.
Even so, MadPea Games have been known for their affinity with darker themes; for instance, Mad City wouldn’t look out of place if it was used as the setting for a film noir. Now, Blood Letters (I’m sure the pun won’t be lost on too many people), which will launch on November 1st and will run until the end of the month, is billed as an erotic thriller.
The plot was described by Kess on MadPea Games’ official blog:
Samantha “The Mantis” Mason, is an internationally infamous serial killer due to her particularly gruesome hobby. Seducing men and women alike, she lured them with the promise of fulfilling their lust, only to appease her own thirst for blood with these hapless pleasure-seekers.
Society breathed a collective sigh of relief when, after 8 brutal murders she was finally apprehended and brought to justice. However, a year after The Mantis was put behind bars murders have started occurring again, and the sadistic killer operates in a way that keeps everyone in fear.
The players will take on the role of a Private Detective and get prepared to solve a grisly series of shocking murders to test the boundaries where eroticism meets morality.
I think MadPea founder Kiana Writer’s description of this scenario as “the most twisted storyline I’ve ever written” is very fitting. The dark and decadent theme of the game’s plot dictates, of course, that it take place on an appropriately-themed region. So, it will be hosted on the post-apocalyptic R3VOLT region. In the press release, Kess points out that Blood Letters is more than a simple “find an object” hunt. It involves solving puzzles over a 25-day period; completing these puzzles successfully will result in the player being rewarded with prizes by the stores participating in the game. Also, additional prizes will be offered on a daily basis.
The full and verbatim press release follows after the cut.
