Styles of Play: Freeform larp, Larp, Chat/Message, Streaming/Online Face to Face
The Glimpse is a two hour long online larp for 6 players and a GM, played over Discord. It is a modern-day family drama with some elements of magical realism. The players will be divided into two groups of three: copies of the same family in two parallel universes. The life paths of the mirrored characters diverged due to a tragic accident. The first act of the larp is realistic and the play is limited to the same universe. The second act introduces a surreal element: the computers of the characters undergo an upgrade to a new, quantum version of the operating system, which causes temporary glitches in video calls and gives the characters a brief opportunity to interact with their counterparts from the alternative universe.
