Never heard of Knee Deep? No problem: here’s everything you need to know:
Take the stage as you guide the investigation of the death of actor Tag Kern in a forgotten roadside attraction along Florida’s Interstate 95. As each episode progresses, the story takes you deeper into the conspiracies and machinations that motivate the villains who want something more than just a rejuvenated local economy. But what price will our heroes pay to thwart those schemes?
You’re the writer, director, and star of the Prologue Theatre’s performance of Knee Deep, a swamp noir adventure in three acts. In each episode, your choices push the characters from one set to another as they collect clues, uncover evidence, and confront wrongdoers.
In Act 1: Wonderland, you’ll explore the rundown roadside eyesore known as Chief Roadside’s Wonderland. In Act 2: Festival, the action moves downtown as political candidates make their final pitches for the upcoming election. And in Act 3: Boomtown, our heroes find themselves deep in the north Florida swamp as they uncover the secret ambitions of their foes.
Paths you follow in conversations may lead to information you might miss otherwise.
You can’t lose Knee Deep. No matter what choices you make, the story unfolds until it reaches the finale.
Your story takes place on the world’s largest theatre stage, with characters shifting between sets. When a scene ends, hop aboard a mobile platform as the giant stage rotates to the next scene!
