Online Interactive Horror ARG
AOTW presents ARCANA, a narrative-driven game for the current state of the world that is safe to play while social distancing. Totally digital yet immersive, ARCANA is an interactive horror game that is an entirely internet-based, puzzle-centric, theatrical experience that can be enjoyed by players from their laptops or smartphones, without ever breaking CDC Guidelines.
Set during the current pandemic, ARCANA combines a twist-filled narrative with complex puzzles,
riddles, and sleuthing. The story follows Jade, a tormented artist who turns to social media to battle
her mounting isolation. Part murder mystery, part heartbreak novella, the game unfolds over a series
of weeks, inviting players to dive into darkness and emerge once they find the light.
Created by AOTW: In 2019, a super team of immersive theater, horror film, and escape room
nerds got together to create a four-day, city-wide ARG for the Overlook Film Festival in New
Orleans called “All Of Them, Witches!” The team reunited in the midst of shelter-in-place orders
across the nation, to create a new genre of immersive experience design. The AOTW team is proud
to present ARCANA, a free-to-play, original experience for our current times.
AOTW is comprised of: E3W Productions (Aaron Keeling, Austin Keeling and Natalie Jones), Mali Elfman, Eva Anderson, Eric Hoff, and Tommy Honton.
Where the Others Are
Filmed Immersive Theatre Experience
A desperate plea from an old friend brings you to the doorstep of her neglected trailer. She's finally ready to leave her abusive husband, and she wants your help. But he may not be what he appears to be. And her problem may be beyond human comprehension.
Originally produced as a live immersive theatre experience for only two audience members at a time, 'Where the Others Are' was the most intimate piece of theatre yet from E3W Productions. Despite sold-out shows and rave reviews, the production was unfortunately cut short in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Because of this, less than 100 people were able to see the show live, as it was meant to be experienced. However, the E3W team quickly pivoted and tapped into their indie-horror film roots, capturing everything on film so that it could reach the audience this story deserves.
A small on-demand fee will help to pay back lost production expenses from the unexpected shutdown.
E3W Productions is a Los Angeles based film and immersive theatre production company telling frightening, emotional stories from a unique and achingly intimate angle, with an emphasis on highly detailed, intricately constructed worlds that envelop audiences and stimulate every sense.
Inspired by a love of the supernatural and all things spooky, founders Aaron Keeling, Austin Keeling and Natalie Jones combine intricate storytelling, emotional depth, and top-notch production values to engage audiences in exploring the unknown.
