In the dying days of the year
In the mad season
The Lord of Misrule is crowned
And hosts the Feast of Fools...

1000 Cities: Lords of Misrule is our new 1000 Cities game, presented by the Transformative Technologies Research Unit and the Faculty of Arts, University of Melbourne. It allows students, staff and visitors to explore the new ArtsWest building at the university's Parkville campus through a narrative revolving around the "feast of fools", a time when chaos rules and jesters hold court. Lords of Misrule will run from August 25 to September 24, kicking off during the student handover of the new building. Use the button below to play it now (you'll need to be using a mobile device).
