The off-Broadway (it's in Brooklyn) play, Adventure Quest
, explores the conventions set by Sierra's adventure games back in the time of yore (that's something like 20 years ago). The story follows a hero who must meticulously collect items and push forward on his journey while playing by the rules. Of course, things start going wrong, à la Into the Woods
(if you don't know, Netflix it).Adventure Quest
, currently playing at the Brick Theater as part of the Antidepressent Festival
, will also be part of the theater's Game Play celebration, which will have a variety of video game related performances
throughout July. If you've seen it (don't be shy, there is love of theater here at the 'stiq), let us know what you thought.
