Pitched as “an eccentric FMV murder mystery with a twist,” someone has poisoned Uncle Marcus and you must uncover who the murderer is during the yearly family quiz in an effort to save him before it is too late.
Directed by Steven Sheil (Mum & Dad), shot in lockdown and filmed simultaneously in London and Los Angeles, it stars Andy Buckley (The Office, Keeping Company, Jurassic World) as Uncle Marcus, Abigail Hardingham (Nina Forever, The Missing), Susannah Doyle (Black Mirror, Drop The Dead Donkey, About A Boy), Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time, Pinocchio), Georgia Small (Struck, Five Dates) and Al Weaver (Colette, Peterloo, The Complex).
“We’re proud to kickstart our 2022 slate of interactive movies with WPMOUM, a quirky murder mystery, co-produced by Good Gate Media, and developed with our in-house narrative tool WIST (Wales Interactive Scripting Tool),” enthuses Wales Interactive executive producer and co-founder Dr David Banner MBE. “As fans of The Office (U.S.) we couldn’t be happier to have the hilarious Andy Buckley on-board as well as some familiar FMV fan favourites from the likes of Five Dates and The Complex.”
Good Gate Media producer and founder John Giwa Amu adds: “Uncle Marcus is Good Gate’s first adventure into the murder mystery genre and it’s been great to craft our sixth title with Wales Interactive. Award-winning director Steven Sheil has put together an incredible cast and we’re excited for the audience to unpick the riddle piece by piece.”
Who Pressed Mute On Uncle Marcus? will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 18th March 2022.
