How it Works

What Is It?

Imagine living through a Kaiju attack in your own city.

The Alternate Aotearoa experience represents an alternate present, playing out as though a monster-disaster film is bleeding off the screen into the real world.

Alternate Aotearoa requires one piece of equipment, your smartphone. Using native features, you meet and interact with characters in a sprawling narrative that leads players across the city of Auckland.

How Does It Work?

You don't need to wear a clunky headset and isolate yourself to have an immersive experience. You don't need to learn how to use awkward controllers to interact with stories in a brand new way.

If you know how to use a smartphone, you know how to go through this experience.

  • Interact with characters through voice notes, text messages, phonecalls and emails
  • Unlock parts of the story from specific geographic locations around Auckland
  • Follow clues and co-ordinate with other players online
  • Decide the fate of the world with a tap of your finger
