Marlowe 2020 takes no less than three of Shakespeare's tragedies, throws in a drop here and there from a comedy and another tragedy, and blends the whole thing into a Shakespeare smoothie, with an extra kick: the whole thing is set in a cyberpunk future of corporate war and artificial intelligence. It's like an extra bit of rum to finish the whole thing off.
Marlowe 2020 is the winner of the 2006 LARPA Small Game Contest, first run successfully at Intercon Mid-Atlantic XXI.
Players can be ready to play minutes after getting their character sheets. Longer prep time for players may allow them to prepare “cyberpunk style” costumes, which may improve the look and feel of the game; but it is not necessary for the actual game-play.
