The Malthusian Paradox (2012)

The Malthusian Paradox is an interactive transmedia narrative you can experience online and in real life. The main narrative is also supported by series of short films that will give you clues and move the story along. You become part of the story. It’s like being right inside a thriller where you are one of the characters.

The Malthusian Paradox

In collaboration with Urban Angel and Covernomics.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
