I have just returned from the press run of Walkabout. It combined theater (theater space, actors), performance art (Abstract Tours) and larp (characters, real interaction), but I realized that I approached it pretty much the same way I would have approached any larp. I’m not going to post a full review (at least not yet) as it would be pointless to write one that did not spoil the game and I don’t want to ruin the experience for anyone.
What did I think about the game? I have mixed feelings. The game was a little long, not as pervasive as I had hoped, and some design decisions seemed odd. On the other hand I did enjoy myself quite a bit, there were moments when fact and fiction collapsed for me in a very powerful way, and the possession model of role taking (which we discuss in the book) was done very elegantly, much better than in Momentum.
