Another aspect that has me excited is that some of the writers for Foul Play include Brennan Lee Mulligan (Dimension 20), B. Dave Walters (Dungeons & Dragons: A Darkened Wish), and Arti Gollapudi (Upright Citizens’ Brigade). This gives me some high hopes for the stories being told. Another fun aspect of the interactive series is that you can join the official Discord and chat with others about who you think the murderer is and the top 20 guessers will gain access to a live chat with Feldman and Boniello as well as rewards in Discord. Talking about the experience, Feldman said:
There’s a really special thing that happens when people play our game; we get to see a light flick on behind their eyes and this huge smile comes across their face as they realize what it is that we made, and just how unique and ambitious it really is. This is the stuff of dreams, and the fact that I got to make it happen with some of the most incredible and skilled performers and creatives…I mean, the whole thing just feels like my freaking birthday party.
Hunter Arnold of TBD Theatricals added:
We built a unique virtual platform just for this series. Through this digital platform, viewers are able to watch and enjoy each case on their terms as it plays out. With the ability to follow the characters and scenarios of their own choosing, they’ll be able to have a different viewing experience every time they watch it.
As previously mentioned, Matarazzo and Urie will be starring in Foul Play as well as Ryan Haddad, Rob McClure, Erica Hernandez, Will Roland, Celia Rose Gooding, Alex Brightman, and many more. The first episode of Foul Play, “The Mansion Case: Murder at Vanguard Mansion” will premiere on April 21 at 9PM ET. You’ll need to head over to foulplay.live to join in the fun and you’ll have to purchase the episode separately for $9.99 each or a full season ticket for $39.99.
