The Villa Arson, Nice launches its [Serious game]

Explore new creation fields, share your knowledges, invent a new heritage experience. Does it interest you ? Join our hackathon from September the 3rd to the 7th.

Only national institution to gather an art centre, an art school and artist residence, the Villa Arson at Nice (06) is a unique place in France. Moreover, to open itself to new trends of digitizing and of gamification, the Villa Arson organizes a week of hackathon from September the 3rd to the 7th 2018 to prototype a first version of the game.

In quest of new user experience, the Villa Arson works since 2017 on the elaboration of a video game in augmented reality able to highlight its artistic heritage, cultural and vegetal while counting the story of the place and of its original owner, Pierre-Joseph Arson. The serious game of the Villa Arson will be playable on all smartphones.

In September 2018, the Villa Arson organizes a trading and production week around the video game. This is in this context that the contributors will be brought to work in groups and one or more prototypes of mini games from the Projet Arson. The week wil be paced by conferences in the morning and group work in the afternoon before to relax the evening in the garden of the Villa or visiting Nice. The contributors will be housed at the Villa and will have a breakfast and a Yoga session every morning.
