Many people ask us what the best thing is about having a makerspace in Galway city. Without even a blip of hesitation, our answer is always the thriving and exciting arts community. We’re excited to share with you a mobile gaming app from our friends at Galway Loves Theatre. It’s called G Loves T, and it looks a little bit special.
According to the website, “It’s part treasure hunt, part code-breaking, part puzzle-solving. It will be played online and around Galway from July 4th – 23rd.” The game involves collecting clues hidden on websites, forums and around Galway City, combining some of the latest (some might even say bizarre) trends in social networking, like geocaching and QR codes. A good old fashioned treasure hunt brought to the virtual world? I’m in!
The game is launching right in time for Galway Arts Festival 2011, so go on over to Galway Loves Theatre’s website and sign yourself up!
