Basically players following the storyline had 120hrs to stop a global pandemic.
This Video gives a glimpse on this interesting experience:
While watching the video I thought about something that Jan Noel Thon told me a couple of days ago.
Jan is a media researcher at the University of Mainz and co-hosting the Storyworlds Conference in June.
We were discussing our views on transmedia and he told me about the importance to document transmedia experiences properly. Many transmedia experiences / alternate reality games only exist during a specific time frame. And without a documentation it is nearly impossible to use them for research or education.
I agree with him.
Since I visited screenwriting school I have been so grateful that it is possible to get a lot of famous movie scripts from the web - to analyse and learn from them. Like on scriptorama. Sadly I have not found something like scriptorama for transmedia stories.
So I call on us transmedia designers and thinkers to share our scripts after the story has been told. Let's make them open-source to learn an do more.
