The Trial - Science Museum Zombie Weekend

  • Chris Farnell
The Trial, an interactive game/experience run by Grant Howitt and Mary Hamilton's game company, Serious Business, took place in a post-zombie-apocalypse world. Fiona Andrews and Clare Phillips were test cases for how the courts and society at large should deal with the aftermath of a zombie virus that can be cured. Fiona, who was infected and killed people while she was sick, and Clare, who killed zombies in self-defence, were both at the Science Museum on Jan 30 from 6.30pm to 9pm, and on Feb 2 and 3 as part of the Zombielab event.
As part of my involvement with the project I wrote a lot of the background and worldbuilding materials for the game, as well as collaborating with the designer, Alina Sandu, to create convincing and entertaining in-world publications and posters.
