Yesterday we secured funding from IC Tomorrow, Abertay University and the Tate to develop a new mobile game platform. Our game, ‘Inquisitor’, is an immersive multiplayer mobile game that sets players off on a winding, floor hopping treasure hunt through the Tate, rewarding successful players with prizes and discounts that can be redeemed on exhibition tickets and Tate merchandise. Players can also share their experience and prizes with friends, creating an instant peer-to-peer buzz that drives gallery visits, online visits, e-commerce and onsite purchases.
We’ll be bringing the product to market in Spring 2012, but in the meantime we’d love to hear from any talented iOS/MySQL/PHP developers, visual designers, testers and project managers who might be interested in working part time on this project. We’re particularly keen to hear from talent based in Scotland who are happy to work remotely with the occasional visit to our Dundee development base, plus 1 or 2 trips down to London.
