MEDIA: Geolocative App, Costumes, Graphic Elements.
The game Montañas a Mesas uses a game structure similar to tag and scavenger hunt along with a geo-locative mobile app while players assume the character of an auto, balloon and roadrunner. Montañas a Mesas is a city game simulating the effects and challenges of mobility by air, vehicle and animal using the landscape of Albuquerque from the Sandia Mountains to the West Albuquerque Mesa. Similar to how you can collect a wearable pin when a balloon lands, each player can collect a pin at designated locations throughout the game. If you collect a pin at each site then you win the game. You may compete against yourself or others.
