Deardorff Murder at the Circus

A digital murder mystery showcases the strengths of storytelling.

Storytelling has the power to captivate, especially when delivered through an imaginative experience. In honor of our favorite holiday, we created the Halloween Whodunit website, Murder at the Circus. Through a theatrical-level production, we detail the murder of the star trapeze artist of an 1890s traveling circus.

The Suspects

The main suspects are portrayed by the good sports at Deardorff, shot in full circus attire and depicted with creepy stop motion photography. Deardorff’s technology team developed the site, complete with custom sound effects and parallax scrolling, for a fun and fully immersive experience. Scroll down and see if you can guess whodunit?
