The Game

Nancy Drew meets Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Enter the world of Shakespeare's Landlord, located in rural Arkansas in 1996. Lily Bard has made this her home, having built a new life after a brutal crime in Memphis 4 years prior. She keeps to herself - her days filled with cleaning houses and mastering karate. One sleepless night, Lily stumbles upon a crime scene and someone’s trying to implicate her in a murder. Her life is in turmoil again. Can she solve the mystery without the town discovering her own dark secrets?

Your Role

Play as Lily Bard, piecing together clues from conversations and snooping through your clients’ homes to uncover motive and opportunity. You have the ultimate control over what happens to you. Chose wisely.

Your Involvement

You witnessed a body being dumped in the park at night, using your garbage cart. Someone’s trying to involve you in this murder, whether you like it or not.

Your Duty

You’ve fought hard to keep your past a secret, to have a normal life again. You’ll do anything to keep your life quiet and boring in Shakespeare. No one can know about what happened in Memphis.

The Features

Adapted from #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris' Lily Bard Shakespeare series, dive deeper into the novel in this interactive story game. Explore familiar places, have in-depth conversations with characters and piece together the puzzle of who killed Pardon Albee.


Gorgeous Environments

The beauty and tranquility of the Ozarks seeps into every location in the game. When combined with the nostalgic touches of American Decor in the early to mid '90s, it creates a stunning and immersive environment you won't want to walk away from.


Dramatic Storytelling

Charlaine Harris, author

One More Story Games has gone above and beyond all expectations! It is truly amazing how they have brought the wonderful tales of Charlaine Harris to life in this game. It is a highly immersive adventure and the details are beyond amazing. It really makes you feel like you have stepped into the pages of the Lily Bard novel.

One More Story Games has demonstrated their commitment to my story and about my characters.

Charlaine Harris, author

I love the Lily Bard book series, not just the mysteries, but also how it deals with PTSD in women. I was lucky enough to see Shakespeare's Landlord in development and I was so happy to see Lily is being faithfully brought to life in the game. I think women (and smart men!) are going to love it!

One More Story Games has demonstrated their commitment to my story and about my characters.

Charlaine Harris, author

It is long past time for games to appropriately tackle and sensitively address social issues. Shakespeare's Landlord takes on the heady issues of PTSD and sexual violence within a point and click mystery adventure game.

Rebecca Johnston, fan

Interactive storytelling is a whole new way for readers to experience their favorite books.

Charlaine Harris, author

If you loved the books, you're bound to love this game. It really brings the mystery to life. Where else do you get to be such a great character like Lily Bard?
