"Serpentine is a film-noir style Alternate Reality Game that examines a true Pittsburgh cold case. Be prepared to travel to different Pittsburgh locales in search of clues, meet up with different characters, collaborate with fellow participants, and influence an unfolding month-long story whose conclusion will be based on your discoveries." 

Scott and Dudders sit down with Basement OG actor and Uncumber Theatrics founder, Ayne Terceira.

Ayne has been a part of ScareHouse family for four years, beginning with ScareHouse Secrets. She initially exposed us to immersive theater beginning with her role in Strata at Bricolage. She takes us back to her start in immersive theater at Carnegie Mellon University's premier improv group, "No Parking Players", part of Scotch 'n' Soda Theater. 

Ayne explains the appeal of immersive theater, and it's similarity to RPGs (role playing games). She stresses the importance of creating your own parts and roles and how she uses that idea to cast for Uncumber Theatrics. We learn about the lengths she goes to in order to demonstrate her commitment to the creative process in shows such as Her Things. She explains what it's like marketing immersive theater as an artist with little to no money and the importance of creating and building relationships within your community and word of mouth marketing.

Tune in to the 22:15 mark if you have any concerns or anxiety about diving into Serpentine. Don't be afraid to take the risk and just see what happens. Even if you're a total introvert and don't want to leave the house after the initial appointment, there are still ways to work with others to solve the mystery. If you just want to interact with unusual characters, participate in a city-wide scavenger hunt, or fall down true Google rabbit holes, they have you covered. 

Scott and Ayne dive into the show Lost, and what drove them crazy about the show. 

Serpentine wants you to ask the interesting question. Enter the story early or late, either way you'll enjoy your experience. The story begins May 19th. Purchase tickets to Serpentine here

Scott and Dudders visit the PAPA (Professional & Amateur Pinball Association) warehouse to chat with Special Events Director of ReplayFX, Fred Cochran. The warehouse contains 506 pinball and 300 video games from the 1950s to today.

Fred, Scott, and Dudders discuss how their love of arcade games began at Showbiz Pizza Place, Pizza Hut, and the Century III mall. Fred explains how the PAPA tournaments ended up in Pittsburgh and the creation of ReplayFX as a way to share their love of arcade games with future generations of gamers. He also lets us in on what it takes to bring some of these games back to life, what they do for fun at work, and the strangest and most unusual games in the warehouse.

Friday, May 13th, ReplayFX will have several pinball games at the Heinz History Center Pinball Game Night

This July, they're bringing every pinball and video game to ReplayFX at the David L. Lawrence Convention. The event also includes bands, tournaments for cast prizes, unlimited freeplay, and cosplay contests. For more information or to buy tickets visit ReplayFX

The warehouse (and all of those magical games) are available for corporate event rentals. Forget boring team building retreats in the woods. Battle, we mean, bond with you coworkers with video games.

"Morose & Macabre's annual cavalcade of the beautiful and bizarre. The Atrocity Exhibition promises to create an immersive theater experience that tells one horribly wonderful story through the art of nationally recognized sideshow, burlesque, and cabaret entertainers. The Atrocity Exhibition is also host to an array of exhibiting artists and artisans for those of a darker sensibility.  


This year, the event takes us to a place where innocence is lost, nothing is as it seems, no one can be trusted, and most importantly, there is no way home.
Welcome to Wonderland...watch your head."

  • Why planning starts immediately after the last show
  • Whether they should make it longer or take it on the road
  • How much longer are they going to do the show
  • Keeping the audience guessing
  • Why they're so secretive about the event

  • Finding their own twist on Alice in Wonderland
  • Why the White Knight is a metaphor for life
  • The insanity behind the scenes
