Text Adventure Time in St Helens

Wednesday 26 October / 10.30am - 2.30pm / St Helens Central Library WA10 1HP / FREE, drop-in


Join us as we play Northern Powerhouse: Last Towns Standing, a new text adventure game set in the future, where humans, robots and cyborgs inhabit our world, a world where it's still difficult to travel across the Pennines.


Created by artists Re-Dock with young people from across Burnley, Wigan and Hull, this event offeres you the chance to explore stories, characters and real objects from the Northern Powerhouse world, as well as play classic games such as Zork, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Planetfall.


There will also be a documentary film on show for those who want to know more about the process behind the game and you can view the full documentation here.


Text Adventure Time is a workshop celebrating St Helens Central Library Digital Art Week organised by FACT, as part of Networked Narrative, a partnership project aimed at empowering young people with art and technology.
