‘MI5 thank you for your continued support in Project Taur. To reward you for your generosity we are pleased to invite you to the upcoming launch party of this exciting venture into the future of mankind.’
Approached by a woman who calls herself The Huntsman, you are quickly whisked away from a party celebrating the launch of the newest top secret government programme and taken into an underground bunker, the home of the mysterious Project Taur. Upon learning about a bizarre string of undeniably related missing people, you must enter the belly of the beast as you venture through the labyrinth of computer systems that make up Project Taur, with the aim of finding answers before they find you.
Working as a team you must make your way through a series of puzzles, codes and clues, fighting against the clock to discover the truth behind this latest clandestine operation. Do you have what it takes to make it back out of the maze alive? Or will you just become another victim of >taur_?
A dramatic, interactive retelling of the classic Theseus myth, >taur_ throws audiences into an exciting and immersive world. Let loose in a dark underground maze, players must throw themselves fully into the challenges set before them as their successes, failures and choices all help to shape their experiences and whether or not they make it out alive.
>taur_ received its debut as part of VAULT Festival 2017 where it was Highly Commended by the VAULT Awards Panel.
