BEEN THERE TOGETHER is a single-player game that challenges you to step out of your comfort zone and get to know people and spaces in your city.
Available both as an app and printed cards, it’s designed as an alternative to those mobile games that pull a player into the virtual reality. Instead, BEEN THERE TOGETHER encourages the player’s perception of public spaces and aims at overcoming a person’s feeling of distance from the others within the city. The player can choose from four difficulty modes divided by the intensity of participation with strangers in public space.
An app is available in two language versions – Czech and English. However, new cards and different language versions are constantly being created. From conferences, through festivals to hospitals and schools, the game is adaptable to countless occasions. You can even order a custom made version for yourself!
While researchers say we spend up to 4 hours a day on our phones, BEEN THERE TOGETHER inspires the players to challenge themselves in the real world by interacting with the city and fostering curiosity towards places they might be already familiar with.
BEEN THERE TOGETHER game encourages you to feel more comfortable stepping out of your daily routines and to be more playful in a public space. You can play wherever you want – at an airport, a bus stop or in a bar. Just pick a card!
