APP BRINGS CITIES TO LIFE

Haven Magazine - - Upfront -

Why be a kid when you can be a se­cret agent in Bris­bane? Or run through the streets of the Gold Coast as a wiz­ard? Have you ever read a story and wished you could ac­tu­ally be in it? The free Story City app makes you the hero of your own fic­tional ad­ven­ture through the streets of Bris­bane and the Gold Coast. Each story starts at a par­tic­u­lar lo­ca­tion in the city it’s set and then branches off into dozens of dif­fer­ent walk­ing-dis­tance lo­ca­tions. When the app de­tects you are in the right lo­ca­tion it un­locks the next part of the story. Will you pil­lage the city look­ing for pi­rate sup­plies? Or maybe solve a mys­tery? It’s your ad­ven­ture, so it’s up to you! Each story hap­pens in the lo­ca­tion that you are stand­ing and can be en­joyed by lis­ten­ing to the nar­rated au­dio or read­ing the story on screen. There are 13 ad­ven­tures to be had rang­ing from G to M15+ and will take 30-40mins to each com­plete along a roughly 1-1.5km trail. Now that’s some school hol­i­day fun right there!
