The Quinn Experiments is a live experience that combines escape-room inspired gamification with a film-like narrative where participants experience total sensory immersion.
The players act as two technicians who are recruited to shut down a rogue Artificial Intelligence system named Quinn after the director of the private laboratory is sealed inside and quickly being deprived of oxygen.
Tasked with saving her before Quinn can escape, the technicians are equipped with smartphone devices and headphones, and must rush to reset Quinn’s systems following an unknown mishap and the sudden disappearance of its lead designer. They soon uncover there is much more going on than initially presumed.
Players are confronted with high stakes choices and forced to re-evaluate which side they want to align with. Each choice they make affects the storyline, challenging who they can trust moving ahead.
Participants will be challenged by the inclusion of tactile elements and multi-sensory experiences that push beyond what has previously been seen in interactive storytelling. The puzzles that the users must solve also keep them fully engaged in the story, as their overall experience will be significantly altered by each decision that they make.
The first act premiered at TriBeCa Interactive Playground 2016, and full experience will be complete early 2017.
