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.

Amazing experience

my friends and i have done almost every box available on this site and so far Hastur has been my absolute favourite. The only downfall is we cannot do it for the first time again!

HASTUR is A league all its own...

Wow. I’ve had HASTUR a month and I’ve only spent the last week working on it. The level of depth and detail that has gone into the puzzle mechanics is second to none to anything else Mysterious Package Company has done. The level of story and depth is astounding. You can lost for hours just going through the dossier and story material before you even begin to crack the main egg that comes in the form of a massive star chart. My only complaint is that this might be a bit too tough for some people, there was a spot I had to kind of get some guidance but I was working on it by myself. I’d recommend doing this with a friend or two. The best part is when you’re done you will get what is quite possibly the best statue the MPC has put out and definitely the best in their Yellow King series! I can’t wait to see what the MPC has up their sleeves next! I just hope they keep going with stories set in the Carcosa Mythos...

Birthday present

I gave this to my boyfriend as a birthday present along with the book "King In Yellow", he absolutely loved it and happily spent the whole day surrounded by notes and pieces of paper trying to work out clues.

Absolutely fantastic puzzle, well thought out with tons of clues and red herrings all of which we've kept as display items.
