Welcome to furyofsolace.com. This is your hub for the immersive transmedia experience that is “Fury of Solace.” At its core, “Fury of Solace” is the story of a supervillain terrorist who targets corrupt corporate moguls for extermination, and the superhero called the Orphan, to whom his fate is inextricably linked. But “Fury of Solace” is much more than that. It’s a serialized, ensemble web series told through narrative live-action video, 8-page online comics, original songs, and in-world video (character vlogs, news reports, etc.). The following is an overview of how to best navigate all of the transmedia elements.
The best place to begin the “Fury of Solace” experience is the Characters Page, which features bios for all of the major characters, as well as links to their Twitter pages, blogs and any other relevant supplementary material.
Then jump over to the Episodes Page to start watching the videos. Each episode is accompanied by a third-person narrative contextualizing that particular installment, linking to recaps of any transmedia experiences that are relevant to that episode.
For viewers who are late to the party, we use Storify to recap important Twitter interactions, which shed further light on the episode at hand, and chronicle the Alternate Reality Games (ARG’s) we’ve staged to advance the story.
ALTERNATE REALITY GAMES
Over the course of the series, we’ve staged a number of Alternate Reality Games which have given fans the opportunity to do everything from hacking into a character’s Twitter account to interacting with our characters in the real world. Click here for a recap of our ARG’s to date.
The “Fury of Solace” team delves even deeper into the fictional world of the show with supplementary materials like this magazine article about Kat Czerny, or this book preview of a non-fiction book called “The Superhero Complex” written by the character Temperance Jones.
