"The Journey" is the world's first mobile adventure game. In the role of a detective, you uncover a thrilling mystery. Like a real detective, you can't do that by sitting around at home - you now have to walk around in your real surroundings to get to the different locations in the game!
You might think that location based gaming is a buzzword and that nobody can play without special and expensive equipment – you're wrong. "The Journey" works on any S60 phone right away, without requiring a GPS-receiver. Plus: the location detection is entirely free!
The game "The Journey" was created to do pioneering experiments with using the unique IDs of network masts to detect the movment of the player. While this does not give the application the real location of the player in the world, the game is still able to detect when the player has moved, as the mobile phone always logs in to the network mast with the strongest signal – resulting in a different network mast ID.
