Sovereign - Playable Trailer now on show at Somerset House and FACT

Saturday, 7 April 2018 by Werkflow

Werkflow are pleased to announce that a playable trailer for Sovereign, our first attempt at producing a videogame, is now on show in London and Liverpool.

We'll be releasing further information and a website for Sovereign soon, but in the meantime you can play the interactive trailer at Somerset House from 06 – 29 Apr 2018 and at FACT States of Play: Roleplay Reality 22 March – 17 June in Liverpool.

Sovereign is a first person, magical realist video game, set in the fictional suburban town of Bridewell in England during the early noughties. The player is guided by Anthony, an aging and unemployed 'lost boy' who lives with an elderly woman in her cluttered council house. As Anthony imparts to us his unique viewpoint on the world, we take a dark and strange journey across playing fields, through homes and garage blocks, with the aim of joining a group of waste-ground revelers, for a night of underage drinking.

We are currently looking for further funding and investigating potential avenues to fully realise Sovereign. Follow us on Instagram and Twitter for more information and announcement of the game trailer and dedicated website which will be online very soon.

Massive thanks to Lucy Sollit, Lesley Taker and the team at FACT Liverpool for putting on such a great show. If you're in the area DEFINITELY go and check out States of Play:Role Play Reality.

And another big thank you to everyone at Somerset House, especially Catherine Ritman-Smith, Sophie Greenstreet, Ellie Wright, Alice Quin and the Studios Team!
