The Keeper

The Keeper

The Keeper is a game written by Dominic Smith as part an Artist’s Residency with Dingy Butterflies arts organisation.It is a simple ‘choose your own adventure’ text game that you can play in Saltwell Park, in Gateshead. You can also play it at home (but it is more fun in the park). 

Dingy Butterflies CIC is a social enterprise that works across Gateshead, developing high quality participatory art projects. Find out more about them here: Dingy Butterflies.

Thank you also to: The Friends of Saltwell Park, The Comfrey Project and St Josephs RC VA Primary School. For support, inspiration and testing!

An album of game characters made by St Josephs can be found HERE


The Keeper was part of the exhibition “Those Northern Lights So Pretty” at the Shipley Art Gallery, UK. September – October 2018.
