KING CASE FILES is a polished docu-trailer video series developed by Secret Location for the crime drama, King. The series delivers first-hand accounts of the criminal worlds that homicide detective, Jessica King (Amy Price-Francis), and her team infiltrate, providing context to the cases and building interest in advance of upcoming episodes on Showcase.
Fun, fangs and fights await fans of the tween TV series My Babysitter’s a Vampire! with the launch of Humans VS Vampires, an action-packed 3D online game.
Developed by Secret Location, Humans VS Vampires pits the show’s human characters against their blood-sucking counterparts in an arcade-style duel that ends with the winning side deciding the Season 1 finale.
The game launches in advance of the Canadian premiere of My Babysitter’s a Vampire!, January 5, 2012, on TELETOON. Season 1 has already aired on Disney Channel (US, UK & Ireland, Germany).
Humans VS Vampires is a modern, fast and fun spin on the classic arcade games Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Players decide whether they want to be one of the good guys (humans) or if theyʼd rather join the dark side (vampires).
In the best two out of three rounds between one human and one vampire character, players rack up points for their collective team. The team with the most points determines which of two endings will air when the season concludes.
The game uses stereoscopic 3D technology and features photorealistic game avatars, modeled from videos of the actual TV series actors. Players can switch from 3D back to 2D instantly, as they battle it out against fantastical backgrounds painted to look like settings from the show.
Each avatar has nearly 30 battle moves controlled using the computer keyboard, including three special moves unique to each character. Multiplayer functionality is included and players can send invite codes to their friend by IM, text, or email to play live remotely.
Since its soft launch in October, Humans VS Vampires has reached 1.5 million page views with over 1 million points scored. Humans are currently leading the challenge by 24,000 points.
My Babysitter’s a Vampire! is a special effects enhanced live-action adventure comedy for tweens. It follows the heroics of three geeky, sci-fi loving best friends and their smoking hot vampire babysitter as they defend their town against an avalanche of scary supernatural phenomena.

A Flash website and 3D game developed by Secret Location for the YTV series In Real Life has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2012 KidScreen Awards in the Best Tweens/Teens Companion Website category.
The website has received over 5.1 million views since it first launched in October 2010. “Race to the Finish”, the site’s standalone game, is among the top three of YTV.com’s most played games.
Anyone can play the game as a “visitor” to the site, but kids can also sign-in and choose to “partner” with one of the on-air competitors. The points they earn during the game are put towards bringing back an on-air competitor for one final webisode challenge. Two of the top 50 fan players on the leader board are also brought back to compete with the two top challengers in the webisode. Additionally, kids can build their own customized levels on the site for others to play, comment on and “like.”
For the current season, In Real Life: Race to the Finish was developed into an iOS mobile game app, playable on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. By playing the mobile and website game, users help affect the outcome of a final exclusive webisode, which launches on the web, December 12, 2012 and airs on YTV December 29, 2012 at 11 PM ET/PT.
In Real Life follows 18 young competitors as they compete against one another in a series of real-life “jobs” for the chance to win a grand cash prize and a trip to the Caribbean.
