Signals From Uruk

An Augmented Cards Historic Party Adventur Game! Print the cards, get the augmented reality app and start playing with you friends! You find an ancient tablet and read that Gilgamesh has a problem.. why? can you help? an Artificial Intelligence ... ehm... Natural Stupidity will try to help you in the game Transmission of information requires a language, and the first written language is the one of the Sumerians. Our game will bring you into an adventure in the world of the Sumerians, in the town of Uruk, where Gilgamesh rules. The story is narrated by a Sumerian kid.. you'll discover many topics of the ancient life and how technology evolved. The game has been designed by an inter generational team (2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 kids). We arrived to the Jam willing to do a "cards game" with ancient human history. We did really enjoy the two days and think we designed and developed a quite interesting way to explore and enjoy stories and history!
