Secret City – http://www.tripventure.net/en/games/secret-city-1/


Ingress

(Niantic Labs, 2012) Exotic matter, which has the power to influence people’s minds, leaks into the world from artworks, which are portals. In the game you try to secure these portals, which are actual artworks in the street, for your faction. You go there with your mobile device, play a minigame to secure them. You can then link them together and so create links and control fields. The people living in those control fields are points for your faction.

At the same time, you attack the portals controlled by the other faction and destroy their control field. And so the fight for the city commences.

Another part of the game is solving puzzles in order to uncover more about the secrets that lie beneath the story.

WePlayers performs plays in public spaces that permanently alter our view of the space. There are productions of Macbeth under the Golden Gate Bridge, a night performance of Hamlet on Alcatraz Island, a six-hour performance of The Odyssey on Angel Island, and Twelfth Night performed at sunset at the Hyde Street Pier.

In all of these plays the audience is part of the action. It is comparable to being on the set of a movie while it is being filmed.
