Crime, cash, sex and dope
The new immersive experience,
staged in the heart of Paris.
(only in French)
“I always wanted to be a gangster.”
Imagine the baby of GTA Vice City and Ocean’s Eleven, bottle-fed with Tarantino movies: this is The Live Holdup.
Gangsters of loose morals, story of revenge and retro 80’s soundtrack combine to take you into the atmosphere of a Paris that rhymes with Miami.
Your undercover mission: infiltrate the headquarters of Docteur Nouveau, the godfather of organized crime.
From the Breaking-Bad-like clandestine dope lab to the secured vault through the X-rated relaxation lounge, you will have to deal with treacherous terrains.
“Stars will be aligned.”
It all starts with a crazy plan that calls upon your deepest expertise.
Dope manufacturing, infiltration and sabotage, tense negotiations, express torture or hacking of security systems: enough for the tastes of all.
Usually, the facility is full of chemists and watchdogs armed to the teeth. Your luck? The big boss will be holding a party with his closest friends.
His inner circle should be occupied, and the security reduced to a minimum. The way should be clear. Well, that’s the theory…
“3 teams. 1 goal.”
Most of all, The Live Holdup is the supreme experience of cooperation up to 12 participants at the same time, all part of the same mission: bring down the empire of Docteur Nouveau.
Everybody plays his part: the most technical among you will handle the manipulations, while the bullshitters will enjoy negotiating with the enemy. The magic word? COORDINATION.
We’ll tell you straight away: you are a bunch of amateurs. Your allies? A junkie and an antisocial hacker. The plan is unlikely to run smoothly.
But there is good news: the whole experience adapts to your actions, leading you to one of the 4 possible endings. Cherry on the cake, you can experience The Live Holdup up to 3 times playing different teams.
Either young or old, everybody loves Docteur Nouveau, this friendly old publicist creator of the delicious dog food Caniboula. But nobody suspects this ideal cover to form a vital component of his true business: large scale drug trafficking.
Former henchwoman of Docteur Nouveau, Fiesta is back in Paris to avenge the death of his father, murdered by the big boss’ hitmen. She sets up a brilliant yet tricky plan to bring his drug empire down. But without money, gun or network, she will have to entrust a bunch of amateurs to enforce the plan.
That’s where you come in.
