Face your deepest fears head on in this new AR immersive interactive horror experience!
From Rogue Artists Ensemble and East West Players, makers of the 2017 groundbreaking immersive theater experience Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin comes Kaidan Project: Alone
Through the AR continuation of the Kaidan Project site-specific immersive theater experience, those who love scary games and the supernatural, will be in for a dynamic new immersive adventure.
Kaidan is an interactive theatre game where YOU are the main character! The App uses binaural audio and augmented reality to tell traditional horror stories that are a part of Japanese culture. Do you live in LA? You can use Kaidan to take a GPS augmented reality/virtual tour of Little Tokyo in addition to the main story.
On your way home, you notice a shadow — a feeling of unease in the world. The usual safety of your home offers no reprieve. In this story, the haunted house is the one knocking on your soul - and the only way to escape is to answer the door. You have a choice to make. Uncover the supernatural horror around you with only your imagination as your tool for survival.
HOW IT WORKS
Kaidan Project: Alone is a three episode, intimate ghost encounter where your choices propel you through terrifying looping stories of spirits, toward a confrontation with the fears of isolation inside us all. After all, everyone knows that the truly scary stories are found deep inside of us. This new interaction fiction adventure for iOS and Android features, among other things, horror puppetry performances created exclusively for the app. The included interactive GPS experience guides you around Little Tokyo in Los Angeles to help you uncover history behind the area that inspired this immersive experience.
AN AUGMENTED THEATRE EXPERIENCE
Featuring a cast of over twelve LA based actors, this experience exists at the uncharted crossroads of immersive theater, podcasts and interactive video games. The app was created by Rogue Artists Ensemble and a team of programmers with AAA game title experience. The text is by Rogue ensemble members Lisa Sanaye Dring and Chelsea Sutton.
