Outside: The Cloud
If you value your humanity, you will join us.
A brand new immersive street adventure being played from January to March in 2017, Outside: The Cloud is the latest offering from Australia’s leading Live Games Company, Pop Up Playground.
In early 2016, a radical environmental activist at a world leading nano-technology company accidentally unleashed an artificial intelligence onto the internet. Gravely affecting those exposed before it was contained, the technology that spread the AI caused its victims to violently hallucinate.
Later that year, two scientists from the same company stole the prototype to destroy it, believing it to be too dangerous for the world. They were hunted down by the inhouse security, but not before they completed their mission.
Now, new information has come to light that the company has been secretly testing their weapon on the general public. Factions within factions, conflicting stories, who can you trust? Find the codes, complete the missions, and WORK TOGETHER…
Played over two months on the streets of Melbourne, Outside: The Cloud takes place online and in the physical world. A real-life choose your own adventure, each week a new episode is released consisting of documents and videos that will be hidden online, and passcodes that are concealed in the real world. There’s also no restriction on start time, so players can join the game whenever they like! Head to the website for more information, www.popupplayground.com.au
Pop Up Playground works with professional writers, actors, game designers, set builders, and puzzle makers to produce interactive live entertainment and new sports. They’ve designed games for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Bell Shakespeare, Melbourne University, The State Library of Victoria, White Night Festival, VicHealth and City of Melbourne and have also run programs for Federation Square and the Melbourne Football Club. Central to the work of Pop Up Playground is the idea that play and games contribute to improved physical strength, intellectual faculty, and empathic capacity. They believe games make people (and society) healthier, smarter and nicer.
