Into Darkness is a sci-fi horror LARP inspired by films such as Event Horizon, Cloverfield Paradox and Solaris. The game is designed the way that participants are confronted with psychologically stressful challenges, up to and including existential threats to their roles. Therefore it may not be suitable for faint-hearted people.
About 50 participants will represent the crew of the spaceship Demeter – a long-range research spaceship of the Nolan Watanabe Industries corporation. The ship is on the way to Hades Nebula to investigate a space anomaly. On the way, the abyss of the human soul opens up for the crew…
The game takes place at the Kreativ.Campus Herten (NRW) of the Waldritter e.V. For this purpose, the association purchased an old department store a few years ago and subsequently converted it into a live role-playing location. In addition to numerous self-designed backdrops and a sophisticated lighting, sound and IT system, the Waldritter e.V. also brought together several pieces of scenery from LARP and film productions from all over Europe and merged them into a playing area, unlike any other in Europe. Software has been developed especially for Into Darkness and is constantly being refined. It realistically simulates the virtual steering and control of the Demeter’s functions via consoles and monitors distributed throughout the ship. Participants can expect a unique immersive spaceship experience in the oppressive atmosphere of space.
OT Info: Into Darkness can not be „won“. The aim of the game is to fail phenomenally together with others, to get to know human abysses and to make borderline experiences that would be too risky in real life. The confrontation with death and/or madness – including one’s own role – is unavoidable after a certain point. If this setting is not for you, please look for any other of our events.
