APP BRINGS CITIES TO LIFE
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!
