The Extra Lives Live Experience is a fully narrated choose-your-own-adventure game where YOU are the main character. Audiences are plunged into an exciting story with visuals, music, footage and sound effects drawn from the legendary console games of the ‘80s, ‘90s and 2000s. With a live score provided by the lovable nerds of Extra Lives, this immersive feast for the imagination will transport you back to your childhood whether you grew up playing video games or not!
At several key junctures the audience must vote on how the character will proceed, leading to special story branches. With multiple endings and over 30 different possible variations depending on in-game choices, each 45-to-60 minute experience is unique! Every story is handpicked for the season, event or theme at hand, and can even be tailor-made for a custom approach. Each show follows a different ‘genre’ format, but every show we write includes moments of humor, lots of classic video games, and ample opportunities for audience interaction.
