Back in the 80’s, there was a novel out called Dream Park, which, to make description easy on the rest of you revolved around an amusment park much like the Star Trek:NG holo-deck, but with more actors and physical props. You acted out a game as a wizard, fighter, etc, etc and got points and all that.
So, anyway, not long after the book came out and gained a little cult following, I started seeing ads in the back of gaming magazines from the Dream Park Project who claimed to be “working to make Dream Park a reality.” It’s been over ten years now, and I don’t think DisneyLand has much to worry about. Does anyone know what happened to these people? Was it a bona fide effort? A search for Dream Park and IFGS (you’d have to read it) turned up a collection of live role playing sites, but that’s a pretty far cry from what was presented in the novel and anyway, live action RP is nothing too innovative.
Anyone have any additional information to share?
