In A Deep Dark Forest
An Inhabitors Production by Roslyn Oades and Collaborators
A quest for the bravest of the brave
In a faraway place, not so dissimilar to our own, an enchanted forest is in seriously, serious trouble. The ancient trees that once bathed in shafts of golden sunlight have been plunged into darkest shadow. The sun is missing and it is always night. The white horned butterfly, the spotted Thylacine and the penguin fairy, that once frolicked happily, have all disappeared. Our story begins as a tribe of brave children (and their elders), armed with tiny torches, set forth into the darkness on a daring quest to return the light...
In A Deep Dark Forest is an exciting new adventure game, set in a magical pop-up forest and played in the dark. A charming shared adventure for families; this is your chance to experience a live bedtime story together.
