The Black Widow

An interactive murder mystery unraveled by communicating with the dead …literally. Faithfully reenacted from the original court records and letters, players investigate the true case of Australia’s first female serial killer. Users are free to ask their own questions to determine whether she was truly guilty, or unjustly executed.

This provocative format challenges players to reflect on their own prejudices and reconsider the verdict of a contentious legal case. Was the accused a callous adulteress, drunkard, and liar, or a victim of sexist expectations?

Key Features:
- Communicate with a convicted killer.
- Ask questions using topics via a spirit board.
- Delve into a complex and dramatic murder mystery.
- Immerse yourself in a faithful, dramatic recreation of a Victorian-era court case.
- Enjoy vivid graphics and an unnerving, atmospheric interface.
