Project Introduction

After a mysterious explosion over Victorian London, Cummerbund Bandersnatch (a likeable, if dim-witted twit) visits his uncle's laboratory and discovers an experimental new formula guaranteeing a "good time" for whoever drinks it. Seduced by the promises in his uncle's journal, Cummerbund decides that it is probably safe to drink and discovers his life will never be the same again.

What may seem like a curse at first, leads Bandersnatch on a thrilling, love-torn adventure through the back alleys of Old London Town as he uncovers a sinister plot involving a secret society, the royal family, copious amounts of dog hair and his uncle at the very centre.

Take a night-time stroll around the local park, take in a show at "Giuseppe Mitchell's Famous Travelling Louse Circus" or enjoy a fat-encrusted delight from Mrs Figgins' pie shop as you attempt to mix the antidote to your uncle's experimental formula. Just watch your back at the local barbers!

The demo is the perfect introduction to the world of Cummerbund Bandersnatch with high-quality art, hilarious dialogue and a promise of what's yet to come.
