Made Possible by the ITP Experiments in Storytelling Grant by Google. The Institute was performed at the Game Play Festival 2015, at the Brick Theater in Brooklyn.
A multimedia, interactive hybrid between a game and a play, The Institute puts the audience in control of the fate of kidnapped Agent Brian Anderson, who’s kidnapping by the sinister Institute of Preternatural Study could spell doom for the nation. Part puzzle game, part multimedia theater, The Institute allows players to explore a surreal mental landscape, while forcing them to confront questions about power, privacy, security, and the murky shades of grey between them..
