BLOCK STOP make games. Interactive, live games. With actors.

 

Our games are better than normal games because they see fictional events unfold in the real world. Ever wondered what it would be like to be a spy? Or on the run from the police? Or on a quest to stop an evil government operation? We give you these adrenaline-filled gaming experiences (just without the real-life danger).

 

Players meet characters, solve puzzles and engage in playful narrative twists and turns.

 

No two BLOCK STOP games are alike. However, we have two different types of games: Public and Private. All our games are adrenaline-filled, strategy-based and challenging to win!

 

Public Games

Our public games are live-streamed video games, where players sit safely behind a monitor and use voice control to guide a character. These are open to the public and tend to sell out fast. We have previously run public games at Soho Theatre, Somerset House, Wellcome Collection, The Vaults and many other lovely venues. Join our mailing list to be one of the savvy individuals who finds out first when we have new games coming out.

 

Private Games

Our private games are fun-filled adventures which are booked by folk with great taste and a sense of fun. They take place at a private event (such as a birthday party) and require players to get physically involved.

Our Mission

 

At BLOCK STOP we use the power of play to challenge and entertain.

 

Challenging … People and Art

- People. With BLOCK STOP, people have the opportunity to explore their own potential and learn about themselves through play.

- Art. Passionately combining theatre and gaming, our stories develop complex theatrical characters and stretch traditional game structures.

 

Entertaining … Play and Players

- Play. We show that games are not just fun, they can also be thrilling, hilarious and deeply moving. Our stories are engaging and thought-provoking.

- Players. Our Players are more than consumers, they are co-artists of our work. We respond dynamically to the group in front of us, making each game entirely unique and equally fulfilling.

 

 

 

BLOCK STOP create exciting story-based live action games. Our games see fictional events unfold in the real world, where players meet characters, solve puzzles and engage in playful narrative twists and turns.
