Murder in Alguer
What happened to Sophia? Retrace her whereabouts and reconstruct the story behind her mysterious disappearance
Sophia, a young university student born in Barcelona, has an intense bond with Alghero, its language and culture. As well as having spent very happy holidays in the city with her family, her affection for the Sardinian town is also due to an old story told by her grandmother, who stimulated her granddaughter's imagination by telling her the legend of the Sleeping Giant of Capo Caccia. Sophia returns to Alghero to finish her studies, but soon finds herself in grave danger because of the mysterious story she loved to be told by her grandmother...
Solve the mystery surrounding her disappearance by dressing as a detective with the gift of psychometry, thanks to which you can see past events by extracting memories from inanimate objects. Use your mobile phone and explore Alghero by interacting with places and objects through Mixed Reality technology
Murder in Alguer can be played on site or from home by downloading Sophia's sketchbook
