Show Information

You awake to find yourself in a Dark Room! You, the audience must choose an option. Will you: A) Find the Light Switch? B) Cry for Help? C) Go North?

Come and play the world’s first live-action text-based adventure game! It’s a choose-your-own-adventure! So choose it! 

The Dark Room blurs the lines between comedy and game show and is enjoyed by gamers, non-gamers, teens and parents. 

The audience play as contestants and the rules are simple. 

1 - Options appear on the screen.

2 - Audience calls out the option they want.

3 - You’re either right, or dead.

4 - In the end, everybody plays!

Originally an interactive YouTube game, the Dark Room went viral and attracted more than 4 million views. Comedian John Robertson then transformed the game into a live show, and so far, has enjoyed sell out shows at Insomnia Gaming Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, EB Games Expo and MCM Comic Con.
