Cue Clint Mansell ambient track. I heard you yelling again. About the maze, the blue walls. I heard it all. It is filled with fruit. He picks up a box of Super Pretzels that is oddly on top.

Someone buys one for Nicholas Van Orton Michael Douglas and his world is then infiltrated by actors and props pulling him into a combined scavenger hunt and action thriller.

We watch as the game masters hook him into the game play, moment by moment intriguing, provoking, seducing, terrorizing him into participation. As games go, this is a pretty mean, roughhousing one. You've paid these people to form a conspiracy against you and they don't stop for for asking, they'll crash straight into your personal and professional life, commandeer home and office as play spaces with no out-of-bound, or time out, or save-games allowed. It can be hard to let yourself go and play - full-immersion games demand a little more participation.

It has no virtual-reality display, no surround-sound, no odorophonics.

There are three copies and they each do totally different things depending on the person who finds them It figures out the story that explains how to deal with what's in your life right now.
Stacie Johnson, "Imaginary Games"
How many hours have I spent in bookstores, picking up books, flipping pages, setting them down because it wasn't telling me the story I needed, the one that cracks open the problem I'm living in that day, that I can't quite process, I just need the thread that leads me out of the labyrinth. That story. Extremely advanced nanotechnology; super-nice artificial intelligence; at least one copy of Vladimir Propp's Morphology of the Folktale.
Bad News is a free webgame created by two Cambridge psych researchers; in a minute session, it challenges players to learn about and deploy six tactics used in disinformation campaigns "polarisation, invoking emotions, spreading conspiracy theories, trolling people online, deflecting blame, and impersonating fake accounts".
