Zapp Detective: an interactive murder mystery

Zapp Detective is a transmedia format that offers children the opportunity to solve a thrilling murder case. The interactive story unfolds on television, YouTube and Instagram in 8 weeks’ time. This is one of my absolute favorite projects I’ve worked on and I’m very proud of the result.

A murdered celebrity

Eight celebrities (television hosts and actors) are enjoying a weekend trip together when one of them dies in a terrible accident. Detective Temmink rushes to the scene to investigate how this could have happened. He comes to a shocking conclusion: this is murder! 😱

Join the Zapp Detective

Detective Temmink needs the viewers’ help to unravel the mystery. Who is acting suspicious? Who doesn’t have an alibi? And who has a motive?

Investigate and interrogate

Live video on YouTube allows viewers to examine the crime scene and interrogate suspects. Hidden clues on Instagram might bring them closer to finding the killer. The audience decides how the investigation develops and plays a crucial role in this engaging experience.
