Come and play the world’s first live-action text-based adventure game! It’s a choose-your-own-adventure! So choose it!
The Dark Room blurs the lines between comedy and game show and the audience play as contestants. The rules are simple:
1 – Options appear on the screen.
2 – Audience calls out the option they want.
3 – You’re either right, or dead.
4 – In the end, everybody plays!
Originally an interactive YouTube game, the Dark Room went viral and attracted more than 4 million views. Comedian John Robertson then transformed the game into a live show, and so far, has enjoyed sell out shows at Insomnia Gaming Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, EB Games Expo and MCM Comic Con.
