Occupy Wall Street
I am tempting all kinds of fate by picking such a provocative title for this blog post… let’s see who comes a-knockin’!
The game “Red Cloud Rising,” which I read about here, is a continent away, which makes me sad. But what makes me happy is the way it captures what I like about blending the lines between playacting and game play:
“Red Cloud Rising” is theater outside the theater. It unfolds like real life, especially in the way we deal with people these days, not just in person but through phone calls, texts and e-mails. But it is more personally engaging than traditional theater. You can’t just sit back and watch (or fall asleep) during the performance. You have to get up on your feet and participate. You have to walk around discovering landmarks, uncovering clues and solving puzzles. You have to talk to people. You have to make decisions.
Anybody out there play this game? I’d like to hear about it.
