Rooster Teeth has unveiled Ten Little Roosters: an in-joke-packed weekly whodunit that aims to keep viewers guessing as to which of the cast will be killed off in each episode.

The action begins at a banquet thrown for the stars from across Rooster Teeth’s offerings. Here we find Chris Demarais from A Simple Walk Into Mordor, resplendent in Hobbit feet but struggling with the dress code, and Red vs. Blue writer Miles Luna suffering from beard envy in the presence of Adam Ellis’ luscious follicular eruption. But soon Achievement Hunter’s Michael Jones confronts the rest of the party’s guests with their RT-related past crimes—such as Gus Sorola’s murder of “Baby Gus”—and a mysterious poem is found taped to the wall. And then… people begin to turn up dead.

If it all sounds a little too incestuous and self-congratulatory, then that’s probably because it is. But on the other hand, it’s this ultra-knowing quality that has no doubt attracted those who are already dissecting the first episode in search of clues as well as jamming to the poem. There are prizes on offer for successful sleuths, but the main reward is the opportunity for fans to submerge themselves in the spirit and lore of a channel that has now had over 3 billion views.
