LARP :: Planetfall
Rated PG :: Combining experiences from augmented reality, live-action gaming and hard science fiction, Planetfall is a new breed of live-action roleplaying game. Set on an alien world, the players take the role of some of the first colonists to leave Earth after it survived a dark age of environmental and political disaster. PF uses technology in a unique way. Most of the game mechanics are handled by an Android app that you run on your phone or tablet as you play. The app gives you information on props (via scanning QR codes), resolves injuries, tracks your inventory and generally handles all the crunchy bits so you don't have to. Planetfall is an ongoing larp that plays every other month in the Austin area. This game is a one-shot scenario, unrelated to the main storyline. It is intended to give players a chance to try out PF and its app, and to be a fun one-shot larp in its own right. The scenario: You and your fellow interstellar colonists have missed your intended drop site and must figure out how to make it through the toxic low-elevation atmosphere to the safety of high ground and breathable air. We recommend that you bring an Android device to run the PF app (and download it ahead of time). We will have loaner devices, but not enough for everyone.
