The City as Game Board – From Geocaching to Harry Potter - Visit Tampere

The City as Game Board – From Geocaching to Harry Potter

In location-based games, the city – its streets, architecture and everyday objects – become the “game board”. They bring the physical environment into the game through mobile and GPS technologies that track their players’ locations. The release of Pokémon GO in 2016 launched location-based games into the mainstream. But these games have a much longer history, dating back to early artistic and commercial experiments from the early 2000s onwards.

The exhibition is on display at the Finnish Museum of Games in Museum Centre Vapriikki 13.9.-1.12.2019.
