GAME
The game Monta
ñas to Mesa uses a game structure similar to tag and scavenger hunt along with a geo-locative mobile app while players assume the character of an auto, balloon and roadrunner. These three must compete with each other to reach their destinations as each has an advantage and disadvantage over the other.

Using familiar geo locative systems with smart phones they players will be given clues and tips tied to a fact about their mode of mobility and the history of urban development of Albuquerque. These clues are set up like a scavenger hunt where in order to reach their destination they must collect, contribute or take action using the information they receive from the mobile communication system.

GAME CREDITS
Game created by Bay Area Artist and New Mexico native, Danielle Siembieda, in collaboration with Artist/Producer DC Spensley.
