HASTUR

What happens when you buy a ticket to a play that can never be seen? 
What calamity arises when you invoke the name of the Yellow King?
What will become of a world that only you can save?

Discover these terrible truths in one of the most immersive, ambitious, tactile, and terrifying experiences we have ever been a part of. 

In partnership with Phantom of Truth Productions, The Mysterious Package Company presents a one-night-only performance of “The King in Yellow” — a play so boundless it could change the fabric of existence. And there’s only one seat left. 

Should you claim that last ticket, you’ll receive far more than a night at the theatre. Instead, you’ll get the fearsome adventure of a lifetime — one spanning centuries, crossing universes, testing the bounds of sanity... 

It will, in fact, be all you can do to withstand the ochre madness — at least long enough to save us all, or serve us up to HASTUR.  

Synopsis

First arrives a ticket, addressed to you, for a performance that has already happened. You may know that “The King in Yellow” is a forbidden demonic play that makes the audience go mad. Or you may not. But as you begin to follow up, your frustration at missing the play in question turns to relief as it seems something beastly and fatal occurred during the performance. There is an ongoing investigation, and apparently you are a person of interest. You receive strange emails to this effect that pull you deeper into the darkest of rabbit holes. Then, all of a sudden, a large wooden crate arrives. 

The crate is full of strange things: relics, rune scrolls, star-charts, a statue, a dossier of papers streaked with blood, and some even curiouser items. It will be up to you to decipher these objects — to figure out what they mean and how they fit together. But there is much more at stake here than simply solving a mystery. Amidst ancient rituals to be performed, intergalactic codes to be broken, and portals to be opened (both online and among the stars) the deepest and deadliest of decisions must be made: Will you bring HASTUR forth, or will you hold him far? Will you save the world, or help destroy it? 

The choice is yours in one of the most intense, disturbing, and elaborate adventures you’ll ever experience. We can only pray you’ll make the right decision. 


Audience

HASTUR is an immersive experience with a complex storyline and numerous puzzle aspects. The narrative involves demonic cults, murder, rituals, and suicide. It is not suitable for children, or people with a sensitive constitution. Your recipient will love it if they are fans of horror, the dark arts, demonology, the work of Robert Chambers and H.P. Lovecraft, the cult of Carcosa, Cthulhu, or the King in Yellow.

Hastur, mailing #2

The quality of products from The Mysterious Package Company never cease to amaze me. It is refreshing to see such quality in a world where quality and quality controls are often victims of time to market or production volume. The Hastur mailing #2 will join the other objects displayed about my home, that cause visitors to my home to wonder and ask, 'What's this?', at which point I am able to bring another unsuspecting person into the mystery, also producing another possible target for one of the packages from The Mysterious Package Company.

Hastur

The mental images and deep thoughts that are evoked with each received package are incredible. The 'relics' and other objects are always displayed in my home, often allowing me to pique the interest (and sometimes, a concern about my mental stability) of guests and family. I never reveal the true source, at least not at first, because I want others to step into the mystery of the stories. For some of these people, I have, or will purchase packages for their own experiences. Hastur is another fine package set from a company that excels in spreading mysteries. Thanks for being out there, in this world, and keeping mystery fun and alive.

In Chaos, There is Order!

If you are a fan of all things Lovecraftian and Cultist, and you also enjoy fully immersive experiences revolving around those two loves, then you must try the Hastur experience. The initial shipment is interactive, creepy, and will definitely hook you in for the rest of the experience. I couldn't wait to dig into the second half of the experience and MPC did not disappoint! The second shipment was timely, and the items in the crate were absolutely incredible. I took my time with it and did a lot of external research and reading around the lore and mythos of Hastur, and I felt like I was one of HPL's characters investigating Eldritch forces trying to break through into our world. I highly recommend this experience, it is worth every penny!!

Immersive and not too difficult

I ended up sharing this experience with a friend of mine. He and I both had a blast reading through the included materials and drawing our own connections between the things provided. Then the main event itself was a great time. Extremely high production value on all artifacts provided. It all felt extremely authentic.

Speechless

The level of detail, the finesse, the attention to narrative, the world-building... an unforgettable experience.
