Here you can browse examples of apps, ad campaigns and alternate reality games. Join in by uploading, blogging or commenting and please help yourself to some piping hot tea and Victoria sponge!

After many years of collecting examples of interactive and online drama Vera Vonviral has taken the reluctant decision to close the Vonviral web archive. "When I started, all this kind of work was so new and nobody knew the history. Now, interactive media is everywhere. Most of it, of course, is poorly executed corporate guff.

It has been my task to collect and collate some of this history, but sadly, now I must take my leave."

Vera is retiring to the South of France with her friend Betty.
