You can play PREPPERS: THE GAME by directly using your Amazon Alexa smart speaker or by downloading the free Alexa app to your phone or tablet.
What is PREPPERS: THE GAME?
The game combines the thrills of a digital escape room with ‘choose your own adventure’ gameplay. Allowing you to make choices that will affect your journey through the game.
Starting underground and alone you must use your voice to decide the steps you will take to survive. Set over two distinct routes, from preparing a bunker to surviving in the outdoors, the gameplay spans three acts with over an hour of content and interactive challenges.
The game is designed to explore how the body and mind react in different environments. So, PREPPERS: THE GAME is a kind of digital experiment. And it’s the first part of Casson & Friends’ PREPPERS project. Alongside the digital gameplay, the company will also present PREPPERS: THE SHOW.

They make extraordinary and accessible productions, to create innovative ways of enhancing and engaging with dance performances.
