HISTORY LIKE NEVER BEFORE

A GearVR Prototype

London, December 02, 2016

Step inside a historical reconstruction of Sir Isaac Newton’s London home at 35 St Martin’s Street, which hasn’t been seen since it was destroyed in 1913.

Pit yourself against a series of puzzles left behind by Newton that leads directly to a notebook containing his most coveted invention. But hurry, you’re not alone and if this notebook were to fall into the wrong hands, the world would be in imminent danger!

Newton Chronicles casts the player into the role of Catherine Barton, Newton’s spirited young niece who is under strict orders from her uncle to destroy his notebook. But will her commitment falter when she finally understands the gravity of Newton’s invention. Will she give in to temptation?

After weighing up the morality of Newton’s secret invention and deciding for yourself if the notebook should be destroyed, take a journey through Newton’s life. Explore every room in detail, interact with his personal possessions and learn the factual history behind one of the greatest minds of the 17th century Scientific Revolution.
