Where does everything happen?

The two selected destinations are the center of Vilanova i la Geltrú and its promenade. The conceptual context of Vilanova’s creative space is the discovery of “Secrets”. Here is the opportunity to find, interact and gain knowledge that would otherwise be impossible. “Secrets” can refer to discovering places digitally or analogically, learning stories, accessing or interacting with locals. Find all kinds of curiosities, hidden places or unknown facts and make them the goals of the games.

The selected sites are:

  • Víctor Balaguer Museum
  • Casa Papiol
  • Town Square
  • Railway Museum
  • Old town
  • Market
  • Lighthouse space
  • Passeig del Carme
  • Bunkers

The Agency of Secrets® is a brand that identifies a set of gaming experiences, under the same narrative, where the city of Vilanova i la Geltrú is explored through physical and virtual environments. The Agency of Secrets® was created as part of the MEDGAIMS GAmifIcation for Memorable tourist experienceS project, funded by the European Union ENI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Program.

A EUROPEAN UNION PROJECT

GAmifIcation for Memorable tourist experienceS

What is the MEDGAIMS project?

Today’s tourists are demanding; they not only want to observe, but also experience the destinations. This trend towards experiential tourism is relevant to all those off-season travelers who choose this time of year to reduce costs, avoid congestion and increase the chances of genuine interactions with locals.
The MEDGAIMS project aims to develop games, both in physical and virtual format, that generate experiential experiences for visitors, adding a necessary appeal to lesser-known destinations. The project aims to increase tourist flows, covering all niches and segments, both for off-season and high-season travelers. This goal creates new opportunities for both gaming and creative professionals to embark on.
Given that gamification is culturally sensitive – we don’t all have the same concept of fun – the project will do a multicultural and cross-border evaluation of initiatives before opening them up to international tourists.
Finally, 40 games will be selected and implemented in 12 areas of tourist interest in 8 destinations in 4 different countries.

THE 7TH BOOK.

A DETECTIVE CASE

In 1951 the box with Victor Balaguer’s legacy was opened following his instructions. The box contained six books about his memories and one more special empty book. The Masonic organization suspected that the original seventh book contained a powerful secret but was stolen and hidden. This enigma has drawn attention to The Agency of Secrets. However, the investigators of this story must be aware, because they are not the only ones who go after the track of The Seventh Book.
