Other Dundee – a sinister tour of the city

The nice days and light nights give us extra time to play and explore – the perfect opportunity to see Other Dundee! This iPhone game is a unique collaboration between National Theatre of Scotland and Dundee-based Quartic Llama – go check out our city’s darker side…

Award-winning game development studio Quartic Llama has worked in partnership with the National Theatre of Scotland to develop Other, a free alternate reality sound game for iPhone. Other takes you on a horror journey around the streets of Dundee featuring puzzles, stories, surprises and spine-tingling, sinister audio!

Starting at Dundee Rep Theatre and using the iPhone’s satellite tracking, the game guides you around the city – and unlocks shocks and surprises when you reach key locations. University of Abertay and Dundee Rep Theatre have also worked in partnership with the Llamas to give us the heebie- jeebies.

Other is inspired by, and created to support, the equally spookily awesome looking Let the Right One In – a stage adaptation by Jack Thorne based on the Swedish novel and film by John Ajvide Lindqvist. The production runs 5th-29th June.

Mal Abbas from Quartic Llama says: “With its rich history and architecture, Dundee is the perfect location for a horror-themed alternate reality game. We can’t wait to hear what people think of playing Other.”

You heard the man – remember to tweet him at 3am when you can’t sleep because of the fear!

Other is free to download for iPhone and available now on the Apple App Store, here.
