February 3, 2018 in Temple, Texas. Tickets on sale soon.
In war, not everyone is a soldier. In A War of Our Own, you are not a fighter. You are not a soldier. You are one of the civilians caught in the middle. You will try to survive, or maybe even escape. You will face constant danger, and need to focus on getting what you need to get through the next day.
A War of Our Own is a one-shot immersive live action event about survival, with proceeds going to benefit war refugee children.
In 2014, the ground-breaking video game This War of Mine was published by 11 bit studios. It stunned players with its harsh depiction of the civilian experience of war. Now, with their cooperation, Jackalope Live Action Studios will be creating a Live Action Role-Playing (LARP) experience inspired by the award-winning game, A War of Our Own.
Set in a fictional country torn by civil war, players will experience a small taste of the desperation of trying to survive in a war zone. The event is written with veterans of the NATO intervention in Bosnia and Herzegovina; and the Iraq War; and in collaboration of refugee advocates throughout the world. It will not be a power gamer experience, but one that tries to bring the harsh reality of war’s consequences to the player.
Jackalope Studios is partnering with Temple Airsoft to provide real military vehicles and full-size war-ravaged town for the event.
