What Killed the Butler? is a detective themed interactive story game which allows players to enter a virtual room and interact with live actors to solve a mystery.
This game was created for the Cave platform during Round 4 of Building Virtual Worlds (Story Round) at the Entertainment Technology Center. The experience was created in 3 weeks and was completely improvised with a naive guest. The guest had no idea what they were stepping into and the performers had no idea what the guests would do.
