Youtube sensation ‘The Dark Room’ is bursting out of the internet to terrify and titillate as the world’s only ‘live action video game’ comes to Gorilla. Mad genius John Robertson headlined Group Therapy’s Magnificent 7 show back in May and is now back to host his own critically acclaimed ‘deranged rock n roll game show’. Having debuted in Edinburgh in 2012 it was met with rave reviews and became somewhat of a cult smash that’s been described as both Kafka-esque and the future of gaming. Robertson himself is there to guide or misguide you through the evenings events and much like the popular Knightmare reboot there is a heavy sense of nostalgia with the text based game format. A real blast from the past with one crooked eye on the future this is a truly unique show you’ll be gutted to miss out on.

Fri 24 Jul, Gorilla, 54-56 Whitworth Street West, Manchester, M1 5WW. Tel: 0161 407 0301, 7pm, £10,
