Ghost Town (2007)

Ghost Town was a locative Bluetooth/SMS game for the ByteMe! Festival.

The game brought together a number of locative technologies, all accessible through a player’s mobile, to turn the streets of Perth into a giant game board. Ghost Town showcased Perth’s public spaces in a new and exciting light.

Ghost Town was a mashup of scavenger hunts, transmedia storytelling and mobile gaming.

Players used their mobiles to communicate with ghosts imprisoned around town. To save the day, they had to solve a series of puzzles and locate a number of stickers hidden around town. Clues came in all shapes and sizes: pictures, recordings, SMS messages and even phone calls. The game led players through numerous venues, introducing them to some of the city’s hidden gems.
