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.

I wear no mask...

Wow. When I received my Cthulhu Crate I thought it was amazing. It was, but the Hastur product was so much more interactive while still maintaining the high quality components. My wife and I plugged away for a couple of days, unraveling the mystery. We never felt completely lost but it did require some thought, a little trial and error but the problem solving was always intriguing.

Submit. Submit and you too will have a wonderfully engaging experience from Mysterious Package Company. I can't give Hastur any higher praise, simply wow.

Outstanding

The letter and invitation are dead-on, and completely fooled my spouse. Wonderful hidden gems throughout the entire experience -- especially the survey, which really built a sense of anticipation. Everything came together to set up this spectacularly creepy and mind-bending experience, and the craftsmanship is utterly superb. I can't really say much more without giving spoilers.

This rating would absolutely be 5-stars, except the envelope and crate came addressed to me, despite everything else being addressed to/around my spouse, whom I bought it for. I had to scramble together a passing envelope and tuck it in with the bills secretly. Everything worked out, but that was an unexpected hurdle. Additionally, when the crate arrived, it was also addressed to me, but the contents were all addressed to my spouse. The last hassle was that the bottom of the crate was not secure, and fell off while I was trying to remove it from the shipping box, spilling everything into the bottom of the cardboard container. Fortunately nothing was broken, and I managed to tuck everything back in at roughly the order it was originally packaged in.

Those minor setbacks aside, EVERYTHING else about this box was amazing -- again, the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and sheer amount of thought and work that went into this experience is mind-blowing. Worth. Every. Penny.

Worth the wait

Ordered for Halloween but came a little after. The elements inside felt very solid and added to the atmosphere. I keep some of the artefacts on my desk they're that good.

Hastur

Hastur was a blast! I got it as a surprise for my wife and it was amazing to see her get lost in the experience. The artifact is gorgeous and is displayed with our oddities, and the puzzles were fun and engaging. It was a good escape from all the stress in our lives.
