Apparently the autumn chill isn’t going to stop anyone playing this year: in the next few weeks there are at least two big outdoor games coming up in London, quite apart from the PlayStation GameRunners event we’ve told you about already.
Sci-Fi London’s Oktoberfest kicks off on 14 October with Life, but as we know it: a special Planetarium show on astrobiology, along with a pile of optional sign-up-on-the-night activities: a discussion panel on believable aliens; stand-up comedy from Rob Deb; and – and this is the reason we’re writing about it, of course – Aliens Among Us, a thinking-planning-sneaking-escaping game. Tickets for the night are £15.
Later in the month, A Door In A Wall will be running Foreign Bodies, another of its cross-London murder mysteries. The game runs all day (you can sign up for either the 23rd or 24th of October). Players will race in their teams to uncover the murderer of South American bureaucrat Luz Morales, a bureaucrat who came to London to help halt a deadly pandemic… and died for his trouble. Tickets are £12.50.
