City fireflies

Game Information
Short Introduction: 
We are using a 15x10 meters LED screen in the facade of Medialab prado in Madrid. Topic: Several environmental dangers are threatening human life: Buildings, pollution, cars. They are eating all the space around and our mission is to draw clean spaces with the help of a bright light: A torch or our mobile phone light. In this first prototype we only have one level with a lot of evil monster representing the city aggressions. If the monster extinguish all the free space, we die and maybe will extinguish too soon.

Brief Play Description: 

The players must stand at the Medialab square. They should turn on their mobile phone screen and start running through the square using the mobile phone screen to remove the monsters before they eat all the screen.

If the players resist more than a certain amount of time without having a certain amount of screen conquered by the monster (both parameters depends on the level), they win and go to the next level.

City Fireflies is compatible with all the mobile phones in the markets, with lighters and torches and can be played by one or many players.
