The potential for this project was sizable before the Covid-19 crisis reared its head. The Silicon Valley-esque high concept pitch is… what do you get if you cross WhatsApp with Dungeons and Dragons?
But now the world is in lockdown and demand for the immersion, sheer escapism and cathartic embodiment that audiences describe experiencing when playing our collaborative stories is increasing dramatically.

* “It was just like being in a film”
* “I was totally into the group experience”
* “I wouldn’t play D&D but I love this”
In the lockdown we have experienced a huge increase in audience members wanting to join the network and play the story experiences — plus many enquiries from organisations (Theatres and Universities) who want us to partner with them to put on SSN stories (some of which are happening weekly right now).
