Waterstones launches Halloween-themed ‘Blogger Mystery’ game

Waterstones is getting into the Halloween spirit with the release of an online horror game in which five bloggers will, over the next fortnight, fall victim to an ‘unknown horror’ in the manor they have become guests of.

Blogger Mystery: The Descendents will incorporate diary entries and Twitter clues to allow players to piece together the mystery and unmask the blogger-averse creature.

To do so budding detectives will have to keep up to speed with each bloggers posts via http://www.prettygreentea.com/, http://www.shemightbeloved.com/, http://www.beckybedbug.com/, http://www.rebelangel.co.uk/, and http://plasticrosaries.com/ as well as keep an eye on the @mysteryclues Twitter account which will play host to a collection of clues, red herrings and wild theories from rival players.

Any sleuths who correctly piece together what’s going on using the hashtag #bloggermystery will receive a £50 book token courtesy of the retailer.

Final guesses must be received by 31 October with the winner to be announced on 4 November.
