Beckett is an abstract retelling of a missing person’s case where the investigator finds himself caught between the life he once had and that which he now lives. The surreal noir will be showcased in The V&A, the world’s leading museum of art and design, who have hand-picked Beckett as an example of design excellence in storytelling and digital media to be featured in its new museum in Dundee.

"If you knew my mind you could never love me," spoke Amy. Beckett was defiant, she was everything to him. Time has passed. Amy is dead. A missing persons case leads Beckett down a decaying rabbit hole to the outskirts of reality. Set in a world unlike anything you've experienced, this is an original surreal noir by The Secret Experment. Take control. Explore. Navigate. Interact. Talk. Defy. Listen. Be careful. This place is unfamiliar. It wants to offend. Don't let it. Beckett will change you.

We want to tell you that this game is for everyone. It's not. We're not even sure if it's a game. It's an authored experience, inspired by the extremities of videogames, literature and arthouse cinema. Beckett is a statement. Its story is dark and experimental. You'll lead its protagonist through a disturbing series of events. At times, you will find this stressful. At times, you'll be appalled by its ugliness. At times, you will find this immeasurably beautiful.

Don't expect a Hollywood blockbuster or a saccharine story.

The whole experience lasts 3-4 hours.

Come to Beckett with an open mind.

Thank you for supporting independent videogames.

  1. An Uneven Nightmarish Journey
    by Daniel Steven Oles, USA - May 1st 2018

    I want to love this game, but perhaps by design it doesn't quite allow this. The sound effects start to get to you. It only saves right before big chunks of 'gameplay' which mostly consists of clicking on and looking at things. There's no real puzzles I could find, it's more like a visual novel with elements of point-and-click to find more information about the world. But beside the hands-off feeling and irritating quirks there's some weird and wonderful ideas, some living metaphors and really catchy haunting music. It's an undeniably cool world to explore, but you can't go in expecting either an adventure game (it isn't) and you have to have a high tollerance for sucking noises.
