Collect dragons hidden in the most iconic buildings of the city with this game that has both an app and a printed passport.
One of the most innovative and fun projects selected for the CreatiFI program, led by Direcció de Creativitat i Innovació de l’Institut de Cultura de Barcelona, és GeoGaming, a physical and virtual game that allows players to discover the city of Barcelona and its secrets as they collect the dragons hidden in the most iconic buildings of the city. "We are developing a solution for the problem of parents traveling with children. We want them to have happy, fun and educational holidays," say The GeoGaming Team.
To play GeoGaming you must have a printed passport with a few trading cards and download the app from the Apple Store or Google Play. It is, therefore, an app with physical support, necessary to generate the amazing augmented reality that the game offers. "We've been able to bring together various concepts and technologies in a single product. We’ve joined the videogame world with the education field and applied it to the tourism sector. With GeoGaming, a city is discovered while playing" say the developers of the game. "We are young adults but we’ve never lost our childish sides. We love to play and then we thought: why not create our own fantasy worlds within the city? We wanted to mix the real world with the fantasy world in a traveling experience. Living a mission in the city," one of the Geogaming Team members explained enthusiastically.
GeoGaming is ready to play in Barcelona, but in 2016 they have plans to expand the game to include most European cities, like London and Rome. "We want our players to enjoy GeoGaming in every city they visit, collecting passports, cards and creatures from each," they state. "Thanks to CreatiFI we could develop and make the product a reality without large financing needs. It has also allowed us to participate in a highly rewarding environment, both personally and professionally. We have attended events and met great professionals and projects that inspired us at the time to get to work," they say about the program, led by Department of Creativity and Innovation of the Institute for Culture of Barcelona.
