RPG system: LARP
Participants: 3-14 players
The recruitment process to the prestigious Svanström Institute is an arduous one. Only the very best in their field, regardless of whether it is art, anthropology or mathematics, are accepted. Those that do get in can expect a great salary, creative freedom, and the resources that they need to make the next big break-through.
The applications have reached the final stage of the process, and they are faced with a dilemma. As part of one of the many mind-blowing projects at the institute, an android has been made that is practically impossible to distinguish from a human. That android is one of the candidates – they are tasked with finding out how.
Before play starts, the players will get to create characters from prompts. The game is played in three acts, and at the end of each the characters will vote on who is the android and motivate why. It is a rather slow and reflective game.
Turing’s Question is a game about what makes us human. What separates us from the machine? And why?
Humanity – Definitions – Thought-Provoking
