Day of the Figurines is a massively multiplayer game for text messaging, set in a fictional town that is littered, dark and underpinned with steady decay.
The game unfolds over a total of 24 days, each day representing an hour in the life of the town as it shifts from the mundane to the cataclysmic: the local vicar opens a summer fete, Scandinavian death metallists play a gig at the Locarno that goes horribly wrong while an Arabic speaking army appears on the High Street. How players respond to these events and to each other creates and sustains a community during the course of a single day in the town.
