As the only artist in the team I set out the idea of using using cardboard, coloured paper and a lot of glue to assemble a miniature city of 50 houses each with its own inhabitant and NFC sticker. The characters also digitised and used as icons for the user interface played on a mobile phone.
The main challenge was the production of the city itself. Ensuring we could make enough to have difficulty in searching for targets but also making sure they held up to potentially rough and fast interaction. Each house, which comes in a variety of shapes and colours, has a door which can be opened revealing the character and NFC sticker. Having to communicate to the other players, identify the target and search for their location added layers of difficulty to ensure the game was keeping people on their feet.
