FRANKLIN’S SECRET CITY: The Interactive IPhone App
You are invited to the Open Beta of FRANKLIN’S SECRET CITY: An iPhone App-Adventure for two players aged 10-100
June 8-September 22, 2021
You and your partner are the newest recruits to The New Promethean Society, a secret society created to protect some of Benjamin Franklin’s more clandestine - and dangerous - discoveries. Your task: check out some odd spikes in bioether, a mysterious force that Franklin discovered back in the 1780s, a force that runs through everything and seems to hold the key to a number of strange powers over space and time. It’s probably nothing -- but sometimes these missions, to make sure bioether doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, can lead you down a twisting path of puzzles and oddities embedded in Philadelphia’s historical relics, as the Society confronts shadowy forces seeking to use bioether for their own ends.
When and Where to Go:
Daylight hours, starting at Signer’s Garden, Southeast corner of 5th and Chestnut, Philadelphia.
BOTH players need an iPhone 6S or newer, running iOS 13 or higher, and headphones.
(Yes, this is just for iPhones for the time being).
