It was a great experience and I think we created an interesting mission that does not focus on the famous sights (of which there are plenty in Budapest) but rather on local events and unusual history. The mission is available in Hungarian and English, so you can also try your luck when visiting Budapest next time. It might be a good idea to get a local to help though as otherwise riddles like this might be tricky:</p> <p><img src="/userfiles/4rid.jpg" width="400" height="300" align="left" hspace="20" alt="" /></p> <p><strong><em>Do not look at the girl!</em></strong></p> <p><em>Last straw?

While the ancient alchemists strived to transform base metals to gold, the well-known owner of this outlet transforms gold into Hungarian Ft and produces remarkably tasteful commercials at the same time.

On Saturday we offered a workshop on how to create a mission and on Sunday the mission could be played.</p> <p>Florian (age 12) used the opportunity to come up with several riddles placed in the Old Town of Erlangen. His mission is now publicly available for everyone and is called &quot;Unterwegs in der Altstadt&quot;. On the picture you can also see his sister Rebecca (age 8) who took on the task to solveher brother's mission.</p> <p><img width="640" height="361" alt="" src="/userfiles/erlangen.jpg" /></p> <p>Many thanks to all participants who were not afraid of the freezing cold that hit Germany and made walking around outside a tough challenge by itself!</p> <!-- <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:trackback="http://madskills.com/public/xml/rss/module/trackback/"> <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=node/139" dc:identifier="http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=node/139" dc:title="3. jet-TAGE Erlangen" trackback:ping="http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=trackback/139" /> </rdf:RDF> --> <div class="trackback-url"><div class="box"><div class="box-inner"> <h2 class="title">Trackback URL for this post:</h2> <div class="content"> http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=trackback/139 </div> </div></div> <!-- /box-inner, /box --> </div> http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=node/139#comments Erlangen tidy city Wed, 08 Feb 2012 09:45:22 +0000 richard.wetzel 139 at http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de Gamescom 2011 http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=node/125 <p>Starting this Wedneday and lasting until Sunday, TOTEM will be present at the <a href="http://www.gamescom-cologne.com/en/gamescom/home/index.php">Gamescom in Cologne</a>.&nbsp;Gamescom is the world's biggest trade fair for video games, so it should be quite exciting!</p> <p>You can play Tidy City and also our new mobile AR game Portal Hunt as well as try out the game specific authoring tools.
