A tongue-in-cheek ‘Allo ‘Allo style performance where I could never quite get my head round whether it was a serious game or not. When it was good, it was very, very good but there were a few too many moments where I was left disappointed.
Some of the best immersive theatre in London in an iconic venue with a masterful plot. If you play the game well this has the potential to be an amazing show. Sadly, I didn’t and that tempered my experience. Read the review to make sure you don’t follow my example.
A real-life first-person perspective game with one player controlling the main character and the “audience” controlling another character via a voting system.

Certainly the pedigree gave me high hopes – Secret
Before the event Ever since The Life and Death of Paul Marrane, I’d been waiting for A Door in a Wall‘s next outing, so as soon as they announced Appetite for Murder, I emailed out to the usual suspects and started putting together a team. In fact, a team of teams – people had enjoyed last time
