CITIES Revealed

an urban exploration game

Cities Revealed is an urban exploration game. Two players in two different cities connect with one another through a chatbot and share their urban perception via photos.

How does the game work?
Both players use an identical group of words to frame their urban explorations in photos. The captured photos from the two different cities represent the same words… or at least that is what the players intent. Their point of view might be extremely different or the same as their companion’s.

Identifying and selecting common words, is the only way to figure out if they connect with one another.

You never know; you might find your urban soul-mate.
