At the center of Pera Games world there's - Who Killed Kenny? - the comic-game created by cartoonist Alessandro Perugini, aka Pera, which proposes mono-vignette mini-enigmas where the protagonist Kenny is always the victim of a murder, while the suspects change from time to time. Inspired by the legendary Kenny McCormick of the animated series South Park, the protagonist of Pera enigmas is also killed every time, but being a fiction of the scene always returns to be the victim of new and dark crimes.
The original investigative format has appeared first of all on the author's social profiles, from the Instagram pages @pera_games and @pera_toons, to the Pera Toons YouTube channel, up to Facebook and the pera_toons page of TikTok, obtaining a huge following in a very short time, which has led to the creation of a community of fans of comics, puns and enigmas with over 2 million followers in continuous growth and more than 10 million views per week. Thanks to its enormous popularity on social media, the comic-game was also successfully offered in print: Tunué published the first book in 2018 - Who killed Kenny? -, reprinted after only 2 weeks and entered the Amazon ranking of top sellers, which was followed in 2019 by a second publication - Who killed Kenny? Kenny's Throne - which replicated the excellent results of the debut, increasing the popularity of the character, and launching an ambitious editorial plan.
