stories & adventures:
We may be Agents, Time travellers, Spies, Treasure hunters, Detectives, Wizards. One thing is for sure: we cannot fail in our mission! There are Aliens to be rescued, Pirates to track, Witches to save, Stag Beetles and Bats who need our help, Eradicons to fight.... We'll have to overcome challenges, solve clues, learn new skills, make lots of tools and contraptions, be clever with how we use our technology and maybe even survive in the wild!
These missions are designed like DIGITAL stories, but live and outdoors! They are fully immersive with all the ingredients that make a great TALE: a brilliant NARRATIVE, strong characters, good technology, SUSPENSE, team work, lots of making and a little bit of competition.
