TV Show ‘Psych’ Launches Interactive Online Game
Fans can help the cast track down the Hashtag Killer in this social media mystery.
Fans awaiting the start of Psych‘s new season can take part in an interactive murder mystery and help the characters catch the killer. #Hashtag Killer is an online experience that unfolds over seven weeks. Using Facebook integration, fans can communicate with the characters, watch original videos featuring the cast, listen to audio feeds, and view interactive crime scene photos to spot clues.
Those taking part can earn points by solving weekly puzzles and make their way up the leader board, but they must be careful or they might become one of the killer’s victims. USA Network’s vice president of digital, Jesse Redniss, said:
This gaming experience further illustrates USA’s commitment to pushing forward and defining the concept of SocialTV. It allows our fans unprecedented interaction and engagement with cast, characters, show creators and other loyal fans extending beyond the on-air boundaries of the original series.
