Developed for primary school children in jolly old Haringey, England, the Oracles by Punchdrunk is a cross-platform experience that throws these pupils into the magical, mystical world of Fallow Cross.
The question is... do you believe in magic? Not the David Copperfield or Blaine kind, but the type that starts with a call to adventure from the Oracles via tablet and takes kids on a digital and physical journey that takes weeks, alternating between gameplay and visits to Fallow Cross where your moves trigger the story and there's a feeling of (what we hope is) childish wonderment...
We get pretty excited by this stuff, in case you didn't notice. There's something special about telling young men and women a story they've never heard before in a way they never could have expected. It's magical.
