Alchymy Micro-Commission

North Hessary

by Alex Robins and Daryl Jones

June, 2008. You are called out to North Hessary Tor Transmitting Station to resume broadcasting following a blackout. The radio waves are clear and the sky is full of fire.

A short interactive experience about isolation, fear and the last vestiges of analogue in a world turning digital. There are two endings available, one of which requires a deeper investigation of the station.

North Hessary will be available to experience from 10 May – until then, read Alex Robins’ blog post on research conducted in the development of the show, Finding the Fear Frequency.
