OldTown Festival is an event that gets more and more attention each year. It is a game (LARP) that lasts one week and everyone there is involved in some way. People come from many countries just to participate in this unusual LARP game for nearly 1000 people! You can be whoever the hell you wish to be. As long as it fits the post-apocalyptic lore. This year I had the opportunity to visit the place for one day and take some quick photos. And as a fanboy of Mad Max, Fallout, Stalker and other pieces of art created in this genre, after seeing how it actually looks like, I am SOLD. Next year I will cut some cans, make armor from old tires and get my cut of the bounty for a mutants head. Or maybe I will be a merchant and have my own store with a fake map for the treasure that can’t be found or get a job as a caravan guard.
I am simply THRILLED by the size and overwhelming immersion that happens, just like magic, immediately after crossing the gate of OldTown. Below, you can see a few pictures I made, but before you watch them, play this music on a separate card in your browser to get into the right mood.
Thanks for watching :-).
