Prototype: Radio Ghost

RADIO GHOST is a prototype developed as part of the UK-Canada Immersive Exchange. An app-based ghost-hunt that transforms Malls into fantastical spaces, and uses binaural sound & multi-player game design to encourage playful collaboration, physical activity and ethical consumption, inspired by the Japanese concept of Tsukumogami - a Shinto belief that every object has a spirit (hidden voices in the supply chain).

Played in groups of 3, a team of ‘hunters’ capture the ‘ghosts’ hidden in products and broadcasts their stories via DJ Iva Taguri’s Radio Ghost. Players’ choices shape the physical journeys of other players around the mall, against an 80’s soundtrack - back where it all began.
