Description

One More Story Games presents “Charlaine Harris’ Lily Bard Mysteries: The Body in Shakespeare Park.” An interactive adaptation Harris’ novel “Shakespeare’s Landlord” from her Lily Bard series, readers and gamers can explore the fictional town as the book’s brave heroine. Lily Bard moved to this sleepy town to escape her trauma-filled past in Memphis as a survivor of an abduction and brutal sexual assault. She’d kept a low profile and maintained distance from her neighbors. After stumbling across a crime scene, Lily finds herself implicated in the crime and must race against the clock to solve the murder of who killed her neighbor and landlord of the Shakespeare Garden Apartments, Pardon Albee. This game contains mature content including PTSD flashbacks and discussion of rape (but not gamified or visually depicted). It’s “Nancy Drew meets The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”
