Happening at The Mist
An immersive performance and gameplay experience set in a mirrored 2016 reality where coastal cities are going underwater, temperature increases have caused nearly all vegetation to disappear, and natural disasters are wreaking havoc across every continent. Every day is a struggle to survive. Yet in a world that’s collapsing, one ruthless billionaire mogul, Alex Ayers, has found strategic ways to thrive through the crumbling economy and environmental apocalypse, amassing her wealth off the backs of the impoverished. Say what you want about Alex's tactics, with civilization in shambles she’s succeeded where nearly all others have failed, and now she wants to see who else has what it takes to thrive. The call has gone out, and now it is your chance to see if you can demonstrate the same traits that lead to Alex’s prosperity. Most will fail, but those who pass her test might just earn the reward of a lifetime.

A long-term immersive work that will run in episodic format that audiences can witness the series unfold over time. Each new episode expands on the previously crafted narrative, which is being devised from scratch, so there is an ever-expanding storyline with new characters and the continuation of existing characters’ trajectories over time.
