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.

 

System Requirements:

BOTH players need an iPhone 6S or newer, running iOS 13 or higher, and headphones.
