After a momentous sell-out run at the 2020 Buxton Fringe (resulting in the only award of the festival) But Why? and The D8R Collective are delighted to bring their market tested and ground-breaking 'socialisation system' to the Edinburgh Fringe. Utilising the most advanced technology ever seen in digital-human interaction, The Affinity Initiative is guaranteed to find you the most perfect companion! The Affinity Initiative is an online experience designed to be played by a single person. The experience will last up to an hour and will involve a video call and email exchanges.
