Agency of Secrets® – Storytelling vs Storydoing
Agency of Secrets® is a global experience made up of 10 games (digital and analog) that can be played independently in Vilanova i la Geltrú, but played together they build a complete narrative (storytelling), which allows the citizen or tourist to discover the history of the city while visiting it (storydoing). Thus, reality and fiction are mixed to create a unique experience for all users.
The etymology tells us a lot about these two words in English, storytelling and storydoing, but how do they both contribute to the gamification of the Agency of Secrets experience?
MedGaims is a European program with partners from four countries: Italy (Alghero), Jordan, Lebanon and Spain. The delegations of each headquarters meet periodically to test the experiences they are creating. The project started two years ago and is now on the final stretch. The plan is to release the games in early 2022. In Vilanova i la Geltrú the development of the projects has involved the work of between 30 and 35 people.
On October 3rd and 4th, the 1st edition of the Hackató & Creative Lab of the MedGaims project was held in Neàpolis, in which 7 teams took part to apply for the scholarships offered by the project. Throughout the weekend the teams selected through the previous nominations were working hard in order to develop and evolve their proposals before being presented to the jury.
