Play the full game at https://hiddentrack.org.uk/howtowin

How to Win is an anarchic adventure game where players get to decide the rules of play.

You decide what our game is about, and what you need to do to win.

Do we win by... Slaying the Dragon? Making the Most Money? Having the Most Fun? It's up to you.

All of the big decisions are put straight to our players. Then your suggestions for what should happen next go out to a public vote. Whichever you choose, that's what happens next. Whatever that might be.

Player choices so far include:

  • Invest all our money in a potato-based pyramid scheme.
  • Bring to life a monster drawn by a 5-year-old.
  • Throw a major character unceremoniously into a volcano.
  • Ignore everything that’s happened, and go and join the circus.

It's what you asked for, and that's what we made. You still have the chance to change the rules of our world.

Created during the UK COVID lockdown by multi-award winning theatre company Hidden Track, teaming with indie game dev Cael O'Sullivan while COVID has closed all the theatres. How to Win was commissioned by Harrogate Theatres and HOME, Manchester.

The live story will be going on until the end of August 2020.

Oh this is lovely. the humor's great. The characters are mostly just archetypes but offer good quips. I hope the dragon turns out to just be BTM.

HiddenTrack responds:

You may be on to something there... :p
