About Clockwork Watch

Clockwork Watch is a collaborative storytelling project set in a retro-futurist vision of Victorian England.

It's a five-year immersive participatory story told through graphic novels, interactive promenade theatre, freeform role-play, online adventures, an interactive book, and a feature film.

The story set is in a genre called Steampunk, a non-colonial style of Victoriana,  at a time when clockwork mechanics and science are the two most important developments in the world.

This site hosts updates from the story universe. We invite participants to interact with news by contributing, photographs, videos, letters,  even drawings showing how developments affect their characters, living in the Clockwork World.

The best submissions following the story arc will be given Canon status, incorporated into the narrative, and the authors will be awarded a contributors credit on the website.

Contributions that are literal in their interpretation of the Clockwork World will not be incorporated into the Canon, but will be hosted in the news section of the website, and may be referred to as the story develops.

Our aim is to create a sandpit where participants can experience a 'make believe' universe, interact with the narrative, contribute to an alternate history, and propose creative adjustments to the Clockwork Watch story universe.

Our Production Blog lifts a lid on the making of Clockwork Watch, including press mentions, activities, and background.

Created by Yomi Ayeni of Articipate Media, the story started  with a live event called Tomorrow's World... Today! -  an immersive live event held in London.
