Dark Forest Virtual Chatroom is a surprisingly touching little narrative driven experience where a Location Bot shows you around a long forgotten virtual chatroom.
The Dark Forest Virtual Chatroom used to be a place where people could hang around, chat to each other and pretend to be vampires, werewolves and other creatures of the night. That was over 20 years ago though and since then it’s just sat dormant and empty waiting for a new user to log in – and it turns out that user is you!
You can log into the Dark Forest Virtual Chatroom, explore and learn more about this long forgotten place through tales from the chatroom’s Location Bot. As you explore the Location Bot will chime in with information about the area you’re in, helping you build up an image of what the chatroom was like in its heyday, but also alerting the Location Bot about how much has changed and how much time has passed.
Taking around 10 minutes to play through, Dark Forest Virtual Chatroom isn’t just a bit of fun bit of virtual chatroom nostalgia – it’s a clever piece of storytelling that makes you think about all those long forgotten chatrooms and the bots still waiting for someone to turn up. Highly recommended.
