Multiplayer alternate reality game Isklander trilogy available now worldwide

Uncover the dark secrets hidden before your very eyes in this time limited sleuthing adventure

London, UK – July 1st, 2021 – Swamp Motel, the immersive entertainment company and experience makers behind the London based Resident Evil 2 escape room / haunted house hybrid, have today unleashed their online sleuthing alternate reality adventure series, the Isklander trilogy, to a global audience.

Part puzzle game, part interactive movie, and part scavenger hunt, this limited time series tasks teams of up to six to solve a cryptic mystery. Navigating a mix of live-action performances, newsreel footage, and fourth-wall breaking research, you must put on your sleuthing cap as your team investigates missing persons, murders, and clandestine conspiracies. Hack into emails, scrutinize social media posts, make phone calls, and inspect websites on your quest to unravel a conspiracy lurking just under our noses. The line between reality and fiction becomes increasingly blurred in this multimedia mystery.

This experiential alternate reality adventure requires players book a time to undergo each chapter in this three-part adventure series. The puppet masters at Swamp Motel will oversee your team’s progress in real-time, ensuring that each episode is an organic, live event with a ticking clock.

“I’ve always been intrigued by Alternate Reality Games because they blur the line between reality and fantasy in a way that makes the real world seem more magical and full of possibilities,” said Swamp Motel co-founder Ollie Jones. “By staging Isklander as an online experience, we were able to create an investigation that requires a heavy dose of outside the box thinking, where it’s not clear where the game ends and reality begins. Imagine an escape room where it’s not even clear where the boundaries of the room are! That’s an experience unlike any other.”
