Perfect Tragedy

William, an ambitious young actor and playwright, yearns to craft the ultimate work of drama. There's just one problem: William has a tendency to borrow rather liberally from famous shows, swiping bits of opera, Broadway, ballet and the Bard. Can you guide our hero from the page to the stage to critical raves without theft being exposed?

Hot Thespian Action

Guide William through six exciting acts of epic drama. The further you push it, the greater your chance of claiming an incredible item.

Critically Acclaimed Rewards

Each Perfect Tragedy will end in a fantastic item: it might be a Cash Shop favorite, a valuable rarity or one of these exciting new exclusives.

How it's played

When a player purchases a Perfect Tragedy, they would be introduced to a character named William, who wants to create a masterpiece play. While attending the play, viewers could "Exit" at a Stage in the player or "Proceed" and try to view the play till the end. At any point the play could be stopped and result in a fail.

After spending a busy few days counting all your hard-earned tax dollars, I've been looking forward to relaxing with my favorite pastime: heckling the theater. As luck would have it, a young actor and playwright is working feverishly to finish his masterpiece. Finally, something new to yell at!

If you can help young William complete the Perfect Tragedy, you'll walk away with an amazing item. Just be careful, because William isn't above borrowing wholesale from the classics.

Whether you achieve success and make it to the encore or fizzle out before the curtains close, you'll take home an awesome rarity, Cash Shop favorite or one of these brand-new theatrical treasures.

Experience the Perfect Tragedy!
