When one door closes, another opens, or so the saying goes. All through our lives we make choices. Some turn out well, and others not so well. But what if you could go back and make another choice? Change one of those choices; open a door you left closed and always wondered about?
This is a game about a group of old university friends, meeting at their usual holiday cottage for another annual (more or less) reunion, who find themselves jumping through alternative universes. How differently could their lives have turned out? How might those small moments have changed the trajectories of careers, families, relationships? And what's causing them to jump? Will they get the chance to choose which door to leave open, and which to shut forever?
The game begins as a traditional UK Freeform/Parlour LARP, with prewritten characters. Then as the universe shifts, players are encouraged to improvise the consequences of the different choices they made.
