The video game Memories, to be released by the end of 2019, finds its realization within the regional project LAB8, which aims to revitalize 11 municipalities in the province of L’Aquila strongly affected by the 2009 earthquake. The game stands as an original tool to promote the rich local heritage, as it involves the player in the rediscovery of landscapes, monuments and artistic beauties scattered around the small towns of Abruzzo.
Players will have the opportunity to explore the territory of L’Aquila thanks to “photographic” cards which are the actual game pivot. Each player will have to collect as many cards as possible thus creating a personal collection of “memories” related to these places.
With this new gaming experience, EGA means to encourage the development of an emotional bond between future potential players and the territory of Abruzzo by building up a real “memory path”.
