This game is the next big thing! The game designer, who invented it, is on the verge of a breakthrough. There’s just a small problem: the game isn’t finished yet, but the players are already in the thick of it. Game over? In their new piece, machine eX invite us behind the scenes and let us become part of the process of creating a game. Every game is built out of questions: Who has power? How is control exercised? How do we agree with others about rules? As in earlier adventures by the theater game collective, the players explore interactive spaces, solve puzzles and make decisions together that help determine the further course of the evening.

machina eX has been exploring the interface of theater and computer games since 2010. The media theater collective originally studied cultural studies in Hildesheim, before producing participatory game theater pieces together. machina eX combines modern technologies with the tools of classical illusionary theater to create theater pieces that are immersive playable theater productions and simultaneously walk-in computer games.
