John Murray Productions, Inc. worked with event producers Cake Group to transform the space at San Francisco's Regency Center into a sanctuary of death for the press release of THQ's latest game, Darksiders II. The game features Death, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, seeking to avenge his brother War who brought destruction to earth in Darksiders I. The goal was to create an even creepier feel to the Regency Center, an old Mason's building in Nob Hill, where press and video game gurus were invited to preview the game and celebrate afterwards with a party. We achieved this by building four life size crypt replicas to sit in the window alcoves found in the Lodge room. Additional custom details included skull and bone catacomb images cut into the wood detailed walls, and replications of the skull medallions found throughout the game, which were hand carved and painted to match the beautiful wood finishing. Large format images of underground crypts added to the creepy feel, and the use of gothic candelabras throughout the space completed the look. Game graphics were used to accent the Regency room, a branded space where guests were introduced to the look of the game with large format prints including an 8' x 14' graphic wall, three 4' x 8' graphic flats, and a dimensional logo adhered above the fireplace. The Candidate room was also utilized as the press interview room, with an 8' x 18' step and repeat for use as a backdrop. The client was extremely happy, and the event a great success!
