When the pandemic hit, Eschaton was one of the first and most well known immersive theatre experiences to pivot online. After creating the virtual version of the show in a matter of weeks and running for four months to rave reviews, Eschaton came to us to complete a full UX/UI and visual reimagining of the show leading to the launch of Eschaton: The Next Chapter. We were faced with creatively solving challenges of social interaction that didn’t exist 12 months prior and creating a new visual language in the process. Given the challenges presented by the pandemic, we were quite literally doing something that had never been done before!
In redesigning Eschaton, we didn’t just design a show for social distancing. We designed for a new form of live digital entertainment that will continue to engage, enthrall, and entertain long into the post-pandemic future.
