During this year's South by Southwest Festival, Bryan Bishop of The Verge was invited to participate in SimuLife: an immersive four-day experience that erases the line between fiction and reality. Designed by the expert group of Austin Interactive Deep Dive, in collaboration with the immersive studio Meow Wolf, the experience avoids websites and screens. Instead, participants interact with the story and the characters as part of their daily lives. Think of it as David Fincher's game, only real, and with a science fiction premise.
Here, we've compiled all the chapters of the ongoing story for The SimuLife Diaries, as well as interviews and behind the scenes aspects of creating the experience. Fasten your belt: this will get weird.
