One for you Grrowl




London is currently being invaded by tentacled Cthulhian horrors.

That is the rough premise of Shadow over Southwark, the latest immersive game from Fire Hazard Games. Basically, you walk (and occasionally run) around the park looking for the answers to clues.

There are three types of monster in Shadow over Southwark: harpies, shogghasts, and waldgeists, all played by actors in really quite convincing costumes. If you get too close to one of these extradimensional spawns of evil, they suck out your soul (you lose points).


Open the Necronomicon for more mythos (in other words click me)

Right, when's the next plane to London!?

Seriously cool stuff, thanks for sharing. Sadly won't be able to catch Shadow of Southwark, but I'll be sure to keep an eye on Fire Hazard Games.

And I need to say - I just love that there are people doing this!

I've said before that I believe games is the most powerful storyteller there is. And be it through a screen, VR goggles or augmented reality games, there is enormous potential here. If I could have a do-over, I'd definitely want to work in games development, making stories and great new ways to tell them.
