By looking at the essence of each location beyond their bricks and mortar, it became clear that the inhabitants and their way of life were the most valuable stories to tell. We conceptualised and created ‘Time Explorers’, an intuitive mobile and tablet experience that provides an immersive and engaging digital layer to the palaces. Time Explorers takes the user back in time and places them at the centre of story driven missions. Each are made up of quick-fire, fun and varied challenges that encourage interaction and exploration of the physical spaces. The innovative experience utilises gameplay mechanics like reward, jeopardy, ranking, hints, as well as mystery, humour, character and film to deliver learning outcomes in a hugely entertaining and gripping way.
