Showcase.ca joins forces with Bedlam Games and Prodigy Pictures to develop the ultimate fan site for the upcoming supernatural series Lost Girl. In addition to exclusive video content, downloads, episode guide, games and fan forums, the website is anchored by the dynamic Lost Girl: The Interactive Motion Comic. A first for showcase.ca, the premiere installment of the Lost Girl Interactive Motion Comic launched this week at showcase.ca/lostgirl.
Featuring gripping storylines and impressive animation, Lost Girl: The Interactive Motion Comic is a perfect complement to the television series, extending the Lost Girl world into the digital universe. The site puts the fan in the director’s chair, allowing them to choose their own adventure. The six installments of the comic are a prequel to the series. Users are introduced to the heroine of Lost Girl, a succubus named Bo, and, in the first installment, are taken through a day-in-her-life where the fan gets to decide the outcomes of Bo’s dark impulses, among other situations featuring secondary characters. With six installments at roughly four minutes in length, this is the first online interactive motion comic created for a Showcase series.
The website acts to broaden the scope of the Lost Girl underworld, giving users an all-access pass to additional narrative and behind-the-scenes content. In addition to the interactive motion comic, Lost Girl cast biographies and character back-stories are available, and full episodes of the series will be available after broadcast. The site is also home to the online Lost Girl fan community where viewers can discuss favourite moments from the show.
The website was developed to complement the hotly anticipated debut of Lost Girl, produced by Prodigy Pictures. The television series premieres Sunday, September 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on Showcase.

Lost Girl: The Interactive Motion Comic tells the story of Bo before she knew who and what she was. Join her as she lives a secret life in the shadows of the city, trying to survive and unable to control the dangerous urge that controls her life. Then follow Detectives Dyson and Hale as they investigate a strange, grisly murder—and an even stranger set of suspects.
But as the name suggests, this story is interactive. As it plays out, you will be given choices: parts of the scene will "glow" when you run your cursor over them, showing you opportunities for you to interact with the scene and its characters, and discover parts of the story that would otherwise remain hidden. Look through Detective Dyson's cluttered desk for clues or go head to head with an MMA fighter.
