THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING Launches Online, Play Along
May 31, 2011 by Korbi Ghosh
In two weeks, THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING will premiere on ABC Family, but the network is getting bloggers and fans involved in the drama ahead of time.
Last Tuesday, an online game titled “The Nine Paths to Chloe King” was launched, allowing viewers to dive into the mysterious world of an ancient race called “The Mai” — a race which the show’s lead character, 16-year-old Chloe King, is just learning that she’s a part of.
The Mai, both god and human, are said to be descendants of the Egyptian goddess, Bastet — a feline, p.s.
Here’s the deal: Around Chloe’s 16th birthday, she’ll begin to notice that she possesses some new cat-like abilities. And shortly thereafter, she’ll realize she’s being pursued by a mysterious entity. Apparently, the Mai — despite having a symbiotic relationship with humans and having protected them throughout history — have been hunted by human assassins for over a thousand years… and Chloe could be their only chance for survival, their chosen one.
The online game — which you can begin playing here — revolves around a circle of strangers (you, me and whomever else is brave enough to get involved) that will help lead the Mai to Chloe King, their “Uniter.”
I started on the first couple paths this weekend and encourage you guys to jump in now! It’s actually quite fun, as the journey kicks off by revealing a box of strange clues that will lead participants down nine separate paths, visiting several different sites online where exclusive content and more clues are doled out. The first player to successfully navigate all nine paths, reaching Chloe safely will win a trip (for themselves and a friend) to visit the set of THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING. There are other cool prizes along the way as well. In fact, you can get your free “Nine Paths” ring right away by visiting abcfamily.com/ninepaths and typing in the special code word — “circle” — into the box on the right hand side of the page.
So, yes, go for it. I’ll be playing right along with you… I’m about to begin “The Third Path” so start now and catch up to me!
The series premiere of THE NINE LIVES OF CHLOE KING debuts Tuesday, June 14 at 9 p.m. on ABC Family.
