The Game

It's the height of the Cold War and tensions have reached boiling point. An attack on targets throughout the UK is expected at any moment, including the strategic port of Dover. You and your friends are in the impact zone.

Fortunately, Civil Defence personnel have led you to a relic from the past; the network of secret wartime tunnels beneath Dover Castle. Deep within the tunnels, a disused WWII bunker offers a glimmer of hope. To survive the attack, you’ll need to get in, bypass old security measures and lock down the bunker before the strike. Time is running out: will you and your team rise to the challenge?
