Legend tells of a young girl and a young boy, whose love overcame even the coldest of winters...
Now winter has come to London, but even as people bustle around doing their Christmas shopping there is another sort of chill in the air. No one quite knows what causes it but there is a whisper on the wind… the Snow Queen has returned. As the cold sets in, a gloom descends over London and the general good cheer that Christmas brings seems empty and hollow.
But that which is frozen will eventually thaw… This January help us bring a little warmth back into the world. Join our brand new immersive game played right in the heart of London. Solve clues and complete ‘good-deeds’ so you can help spread kindness and defeat the cold of the Snow Queen.
For more information about our immersive games and the work we do, please visit our website or find us on Twitter @KomorabiGames to get in touch.
These games are being played in aid of Mary’s Meals ‘Backpack Project’. Part of the challenge will be to collect a series of items to fill a backpack to be sent to a child who needs resources for school.
You can find more information about them at their website:
We are always happy to hear from charities or organisations that might want to partner with us and our immersive games. Please get in touch via our website.
