Playground Kortrijk: discover your city is fun!

News date: 
Sep-17-2014

Playground Kortrijk is an all-new interactive application developed in the context of SPECIFI that aims to make people discover this Belgian city in a playful way. Participants are asked to get through a number of entertaining challenges by interacting with local commuters, tourists and technologies (such as sensors and Open Data). When challenges are completed players gain points that can be used to “buy” unique experiences (e.g. tickets for local concerts, backstage passes and the like).

Playground Kortrijk will be available in September on the App Store. Participants can play with it as of the 1st of October, 2014.

Kortrijk City Gazette already published an article announcing the launch of the application (in Dutch) http://www.kortrijk.be/nieuws/jij-krijgt-de-hoofrol-in-nieuwste-stadsspel Check out the SPECIFI website and follow us on Twitter (@SPECIFI_project): more information coming soon!
