Fire Hazard Games have announced details of its latest game for adults based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s Gothic masterpiece, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
Running at The Vaults from the 12th February until the 22nd March, Jekyll/Hyde will explore themes such as identity, the unreliability of memory, moral conflict, terrible ambition, and unbridled hedonism.
What foul deeds did you do last night? Jekyll / Hyde is an interactive mobile game that plunges you into a world where your memory can’t be trusted, and neither can those around you. You’ll have 90 minutes to search for hidden clues around the streets of Lambeth: uncover the truth about your actions decide what your future will hold… if it’s not already too late.
The experience is part theatrical adventure and scavenger hunt, with players using a web app on their smartphone to guide them through the streets while also encountering a cast of real-life characters as you make your way through dark and sinister surroundings.
Players can play the game as a solo player, in a pair or in a group of up to three.
Talking about the experience, Michelle Hudson, producer at Fire Hazard, said: “We’re always looking for new ways to put the audience at the heart of our stories. With Jekyll / Hyde, we’re giving audiences the chance to explore the darker sides of their own psyches. This is also Fire Hazard’s first time as part of VAULT Festival and we’re thrilled to take part in this cornerstone of London’s cultural scene.”
Fire Hazard’s previous real-life immersive games include the critically acclaimed 80 Days: A Real-World Adventure, The Hunted Experience and John Le Carre’s The Circus.
Jekyll/Hyde will take place at The Vaults from the 12th February until the 22nd March.
