Turning the city into a giant playground to reclaim public spaces – TEDx Talk


Sam Lavigne, founder of Situate, created Journey to the End of the Night, an open sourced chase game that turns cities around the world into giant playgrounds. By changing the rules by which people usually navigate the city and interact with each other, and by adding a layer of low-fi, Journey to the End of the Night encourages players to reclaim public spaces and discover their city in a completely new way.

Sam will be coaching at Startup Weekend Transmedia about how to design low fi games situated in the real world. So for those of you who always dreamed of creating your own zombie adventure or treasure hunt in town, this is your chance to pick Sam’s brain!
