Back of Beyond


This is a live-action game about two fictional backpackers—nicknamed Razz and Jules—who disappeared in the wilderness and were never seen again. Did they perish in some tragic accident or run off together to pursue other adventures? We’ll never truly know, though the game may provide hints.

Through play, 5 to 15 players will imagine and act out a short documentary about them. This imaginary film will contain two different types of scenes:

  • MEMORIES, in which various people (family, friends, park rangers, experts) will be interviewed about Razz and Jules

  • FOOTPRINTS, in which we recreate “found footage” from the missing backpackers’ recovered camera but never show clear evidence about their disappearance
