About Us

A thriller in which you, the listener, are the hero. The Walk begins in Inverness station, Scotland. Through a case of mistaken identity, you, "the walker," are given a vital package that must be couriered to Edinburgh. But as you're about to board the train, terrorists blow it up and set off an electromagnetic pulse! None of the cars or trains are working - you'll have to walk - but now the terrorists are on your trail because they want the device you're carrying, and the police are after you as a suspect in the bombing. To survive, you'll have to join up with other escapees from the city - but how many of them can you trust, and are they really who they say they are?

Your Mission

You have one mission: transport a mysterious package on a train from Inverness to Edinburgh. But when The Burn intervenes and a bomb goes off at the station, the police are on the hunt for a terrorist and you’re the number one suspect. The entire city is on lockdown but you have to get out before they find you - the survival of the human race depends on it.

Your Mission

The City Limits

The city limits are controlled by military officers and checkpoints. While you and your found cohort of survivors work together to create a distraction and slip through the barrier, alliances begin to form and questions of true identity arise. How long can you keep your secret, and who can you trust?

Beware of Good Fortune

Beware of good fortune - there are traitors at every turn eager to take you down. Stanton was able to save you this time, but you can never be too careful. Everyone you meet is a potential enemy. Better to stay one step ahead.

Beware of Good Fortune

Refuge

Charlie is doing her best to guide you to safe refuge on your dangerous journey, but the limitations of satellite technology make it harder and harder to communicate. Somehow you find your way and some supplies, but The Burn is (literally) hot on your trail and willing to use any means necessary to stop you - even if it means sabotaging themselves.

Refuge

Wolves

As if evading The Burn isn’t enough stress, now blood-thirsty wolves are after you. After so much running you need some rest, but just when you thought you could catch a break for a few days a surprise attack means you’ve got to get on the move again, and this time without your travel companions. At least you’ve still got Charlie in your ear, but even she’s on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

Alive or Dead

Capture

The threat of those flyers catches up with you sooner than expected. Your capture reunites you with some old friends, but one of them is in critical condition and your captors force you to keep moving. With the likelihood death more palpable than ever, it’s hard to keep faith that you’ll make it through this journey together, or even at all.

The American

While running an errand, you and Emma pick up a clueless American traveler running from a local gang. It might’ve been the right thing to do, but now he’s asking way too many questions. Lawrence has got some unanswered questions, too, and he doesn’t trust anyone but you to confide in. Maybe he’s onto something.
