A whole range of Live Entertainment Events will be happening next year at the UK Games Expo running between June 2nd – 4th 2016. Here’s a run down of just some of them and the links to pick up some tickets!
Which ones will you be attending? Make sure to pick up your tickets HERE when they go live!
The Dark Room
You awake to find yourself in a Dark Room! You, the audience, must choose an option – Will you A) Find the light switch B) Cry for help C) Go North?
Come and play a live action, text-based adventure game! It’s a choose your own adventure – so choose it! After four million YouTube hits, ten crowd-surfs, four death threats and sell-out shows worldwide. Cult hit The Dark Room returns to UKGE for it’s third consecutive year!
Enter, stranger! Knightmare Live is back, and offers you the chance to wear the iconic helmet of justice and play the dungeon.
For this time, the game has changed; every show is different, every room holds a new challenge.
The critically acclaimed comedy stage adaption of the cult TV classic is now bigger and better than ever. Multiple contestants will be able to take part in an mostly improvised adventure against Lord Fear and his agents of evil.
A crowd gathers, no doubt they hear I seek a champion. From the makers of Knightmare Live and following a critically acclaimed Edinburgh debut; The MMORPG show (Spirit of the Festival winners VAULT 2016) returns with more adventures than ever.
Combining improvised comedy with table top gaming in an epic, sprawling, open world, entirely made up fantasy quest. Every show is different. For every choice a consequence. Success decided by a large, light up D20…
Will you be victorious? Will you bring harmony to the kingdom or will you betray your new friends for personal glory?
RPG Live Plus
Live RPG Plus pits Benjamin Loomes (creator of Syrinscape and host of the Dicestormers) against an all-star cast adventure party, transforming the location (convention ballroom or event space) into a fast and fun gaming experience for players as well as the audience, who will contribute to the action via shout-outs, hold-up cards and social media.
In a follow up to last year’s successful event featuring Colin Baker, John Robertson and Tom Vasel, Live Pandemic Returns, The Expo is in lock-down as award-winning comedian (and 2015 UK Carcassonne champion) James Cook asks you to join us in a game of Pandemic unlike any you’ve ever played before!
Featuring a panel of our guests – full details to be confirmed.
Live Concert by Shadows of Esteren
Shadows of Esteren is a dark & low fantasy medieval world with horrific and gothic overtones. Drawing inspiration from Celtic myths, this universe is developed through RPG books, music, video games. ON the Saturday Evening at UKGE you can devolve into this world through a concert of music that will take you away from our world into the world of Esteren.
You can come and grab tickets for these events HERE and make sure you get a front row seat for some of the awesomeness. We can’t wait to maybe check a few of these out and show them off to you folks during our coverage of the event next year.
Will you be giving this a go?
