"Often she felt as though she had been picked up and turned about like a kaleidoscope, that all her complacent assumptions had been shaken up and reassembled in a different order." (Judith Lennox)

Mean Street

It's 1920s New York and everyone from gangsters to gumshoes have gathered in the speakeasy The Crimson Club for a night of music, gambling, and smuggled drink.

In futuristic America, the megacorp Avatech Industries has recently shot to fame with the creation of the most astonishingly immersive game scenarios the world has ever seen. Who are the patrons there to indulge their wildest famtasies? And who are the androids there to service their every need? Reality and fantasy blur when artifcial life can no longer be told apart from life - and on Mean Street, is there even a place left for morality?

Mean Street is a dark science-fiction game inspired by Westworld, Dollhouse and the 1920s noir genre, in which players play either human patrons or androids in one of Avatech's games.

WARNING: This game has adult themes in the background, including violence, murder, stalking and sexual violence. It is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

Played my first freeform 16 years ago and have been writing them ever since the Peaky writing weekend first began, which was... a while ago now. I like a nice solid traditional freeform but my fellow writers keep making me experiment against my will - they're tricksy like that :) I am neither fish nor fowl nor good red herring, but I do know that Vikings go with everything!
