October 2019 a look back

Variant 31

Variant 31 brings to London a live action gaming experience which will put brave souls through a warehouse full of zombies.

Choose which direction you go, what rooms to explore, and test your wits as you try to survive in this narrative driven game where the player with the most points WINS!

Question is are you brave enough to put yourself in a real life game of killing zombies?

I already felt my nerves crumbling as we arrived: the first thing I saw was smoke etching out of the Toxico Technologies sign and a long line of people waiting in anticipation outside of two or three dirty run-down buildings. Oh, and I also heard constant screams.

Definitely Blue Cafe

For a limited time innocent and Bompass & Parr popped up with a Definitely Blue Café to prove to consumers that innocent new drink is in fact blue after it hitting such a big debate which hit Twitter.

Alongside their blue drink within this very blue cafe was blue food, blue objects, and even a poster of Duncan from Blue bringing everyone smells, sounds and sights of everything blue.

The Blue Cafe Bompas and Parr innocence

I loved this blue cafe and been taken on a multi sensory journey from smelling, tasting and listening to all things blue but sorry I am one of those consumers who don’t believe that innocent new Bolt drink is blue.
