Murder at the Met App

To celebrate the reopening of their American Wing, the world-renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art teamed up with Green Door Labs and OnCell to develop an interactive mobile game called "Murder at the Met: An American Art Mystery". The smartphone app leads visitors on an investigative journey through the Museum.

In the game, the mysterious Madame X has been murdered! Sleuths must use their smartphones to explore museum objects and interview suspects and witnesses to discover who the killer was, the weapon that was used, where she was murdered, and why.

This game is an amazing example of the flexibility and power of the OnCell mobile platform. The app won a 2013 Bronze Muse Award in the Games and Augmented Reality category.
