As a part of our Young Artists' Initiative, Media Context will work with its partners to create an interactive game from one of our students' original ideas:
A luxury train is derailed by a murderer who threatens to kill one passenger per hour. An amateur detective must catch them before they strike again.

Express revolves around eighteen-year-old Wes Stevenson, whose parents are a pair of esteemed investigators, and has assisted his relatives with several challenging cases. In order to thank him for his help, his parents reward him with first-class tickets for the Aurora Maglev, a luxurious monorail that transports its wealthy passengers on a cross-country tour.
What started as a lavish vacation is derailed by a grisly tragedy – Once the monorail malfunctions on an isolated route, the wealthy director of the Aurora Maglev is murdered by a killer who threatens to kill one passenger every hour.
Joined by Pallavi, a rookie nightguard, Louise, a resourceful attendant, and Cornell, the son of the murdered director, Wes works to close his biggest case yet. But, with the clock ticking down on the train’s terrified passengers, can Wes catch the killer before they strike again?
