Waterstones releases interactive Halloween game

Tuesday, 28th October 2014 at 3:59pm

Blogger MysteryBook chain Waterstones has released an interactive online horror game for Halloween.

‘Blogger Mystery: The Descendants’ puts a 21st Century spin on a haunted house story, by following five bloggers as they stay in a spooky manor.

Players can follow the bloggers’ posts as they fall victim to an ‘unknown horror’ and also take a look at @mysteryclues on Twitter to try to gather evidence.

Any online sleuths who correctly work out the mystery will win a £50 book token from Waterstones.

Find out more about the game, which ends on Halloween, here.

For the second year in a row, Architects Southwest has inspired 200 applicants from 12 countries to design imaginative zombie-proof architecture that will save thousands of lives during the inevitable zombie apocalypse. The goal of the competition is to “design a haven that can withstand a full-on zombie assault on civilization as we know it.” These creative designs may one day save you from the dead, therefore voting is important. Here's an insight into some of the top competitors.

The Oil Silo Home. This reuses abandoned Oil Silos to create a self-sufficient, zombie proof multi-family complex.

The Zombie Ranch. Safely houses residents in a zombie-powered vertical farm.

The Eiffel Tower. Adapted to provide all basic human needs with a wind turbine, rain water collection, vertical farming, and electric legs forbidding any zombie to climb the tower.

The Submersible Z House. This allows tenants to live a luxurious life uninterrupted, with a built-in greenhouse, fish farm, tidal powered turbines constructed of razor blades, and a fully-armed luxurious escape pod for backup.

To browse through the entries and give thumbs up to your favorite designs visit the competition website or to read more visit Archdaily. Voting ends today on Halloween, October 31st, 2011.
