Do you know the difference between Storytelling and Storydoing? The Agency of Secrets® app puts you to the test

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?
