WALL STREET DRAMA
PERSONAL / INTENSE / OUT OF THE BOX
ZOO is a unique live-action role-playing game inspired by the masterpieces of the genre that tells the story of a young and crazy broker agency.
It is a larp focused on interpretation, relationships and uses innovative mechanics that make it fast-paced, powerful and personal.
An amazing story about people, relationships and choices. It’s about what we desire and what we’re willing to sacrifice, because everything has a price.
a dirty wall street story
Fuck hard work. Fuck misery. Fuck the pain-in-the-ass family. There is no problem that a shitload of money can’t solve.
Ordinary people are on the other side of the phone. They want to make money, too. And you have stock for them, millions of shares. And the beauty of it is that it doesn’t matter what happens to them, because you’re going to win anyway.
Yeah sure, that’s going to take a toll on your personal life. But you’ll be able to handle it, right?
Trust me, when you’re old and look back you’ll regret not having had more parties, more drugs, more sports cars. Take them now. Take it all.
THE WALL STREET AGE
MONEY THAT MAKES MONEY
ZOO is set in the golden age of Wall Street at the turn of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
When brokers sold stocks over the phone to anyone with some savings to invest and where everyone was confident that money could create more money.
Where brokerages born in a garage accumulated piles of money in a matter of weeks.
Pioneers of the wildest, most excited and insane capitalism, these men and women lived and breathed the frenetic pace of the stock markets halfway around the world trying tooth and nail to get on the back of the bull and tame it.
NEW GENERATION DESIGN
ZOO uses narrative techniques designed to make the gaming experience deep and intense.
We have designed narrative tools that will allow you to savor all the nuances of the character and his or her story.
We have carefully designed every aspect of this story to thrill you, to make you the author of an original and shared narrative, unique and powerful. Something that will surprise you. Guaranteed.
