The Dark Room
You awake to find yourself in a Dark Room! You, the audience must choose an option! Will you: A. Find The Light Switch? B. Abandon Hope? C. Darren?
Come and play the world’s only live-action text-based adventure game! It’s a choose-your-own-adventure, so choose it!
The Dark Room is an anarchic comedy game show that fuses retro gaming, improv and sadism into an incredible immersive event. The whole audience play as contestants in a challenge that’s racked up over 4 million YouTube hits, and won awards at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes.
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 – TERRIBLE PRIZES FOR EVERYONE!
