The Black Widow, developed by Flux, takes the contentious case of convicted serial killer, Louisa Collins, and allows the player to interview the aforementioned killer. Collins' own words were reenacted from the original court records. Players will be able to ask questions using topics via an onscreen spirit board.
With The Black Widow, I wanted to explore unlimited choice in character conversation over preset options for more imaginative role-playing, complex storytelling, and character development. As an experienced historical storyteller, I’m always looking for new ways to interact with characters from history. The Black Widow distills insights I’ve learned so far in an instantly recognizable format that dares players to evaluate the facts of the case on their own.
