Blast Theory: Uncle Roy All Around You

Bringing the world of espionage movies to life, Uncle Roy All Around You links players on the streets of Manchester with online players across the world. Cornerhouse is the starting point for street players, who use handheld computers to search for Uncle Roy. Using the map and incoming messages they move through the streets to find a secret destination. Online players cruise through the virtual city, listen in to the street players and assist them. As you play, you are introduced to a new interactive landscape in which you are less passive than you think: would you put your trust in a stranger? Tickets £3.00 / £2.00 concs Online players see and visit Cornerhouse or Urbis to join in and watch the day’s play.
