This is a project I’ve just finished at POKE. It’s a site for the publisher Penguin, to promote a new book coming out called The Malice Box. The book is a bit like the Da Vinci Code – a dude runs about the place, solving puzzles and saving the world. In the book he has a GPS device called ‘The Quad’ to help him get around. For the online game we created, you get to navigate the globe using google maps. Basically you solve puzzles, guess locations of ‘Red Gold’ on the map and win prizes. Go check it out and play the game and at www.maliceboxquest.com/
Also see what Tom and Iain have to say, who also worked on the site.
