What happens when you make a literary classic meet a computer game?
In this story, the hero and villain Macbeth is called MacBad – the real bad guy! – and it is he who, even though he tries to escape the prophecies of the three witches, will play the role of fulfilling them. The spectator, on the other hand, is the protagonist and also a gamer, who ensures that the story comes to an end. For this, the show resorts to mechanisms inspired by systems of famous role-playing games, such as Dungeons & Dragons and Game Centers.
