Discover and collect the curiosities of Vienna, by trying to solve visual riddles on the map and spotting out the items around the city.
You will find the „real Vienna“ while playing this City Game. Many small riddles where you have to find the answers will guide you away from the tourist trails and give a new and very human picture of the city Vienna and its people.
The riddles connect past and present to get a sense of why things are as they are.
The game will be played in a larger area of Vienna so you have to use underground and tram in between the walks.
The mechanic is to solve riddle after riddle which are in the play book.
A LED lights up at the beginning and marks a point on the map, together with the solving of the first riddle which gives you important hints you have to find a certain object. When you found it the next spot lights up on the map and with the second riddle you are on your way again…
So you will collect a Wunderkammer full of interesting things which give you a picture of the soul of Vienna.
The story line is basically a time line. You will start in ancient time, the ending is literally in the future.
When you solve a riddle, that means that you are very close to the object which you are looking for; then a LED lights up for the next spot you have to find. For this interaction a bluetooth or WLAN technology is used in the map.
A second technology layer is used if you get stuck during the game you can touch the help area which is printed on the map with conductive ink, to get further hints. LED pattern lightens up through Lightplay, when you shake the map, indicating you a number.
This number you can find in the play book which gives you a second hint to solve the task.
