MED GAIMS project aims to revolutionize the tourist site experience by gamifying it, with both analog and digital applications. The project applies game design to create experiences for tourists, and as a result, gives a necessary competitive edge to the attractiveness of less-known sites.
Under the broad thematic umbrella of “Discovery”, the games must help tourists to discover and experience a touristic spot beyond the simple observation. The idea is to encourage the creative freedom of entrepreneurs, creative workers, and game designers with a competition to offer 20 funded grants for game development at selected tourism sites (5 per partner country, i.e. Italy, Spain, Lebanon, Jordan).
In Spain, the two selected destinations are the city center of Vilanova i la Geltrú and its seafront. The selected tourist spots are Museum Víctor Balaguer, Casa Papiol, Plaça de la Vila, Railway Museum, The Old Quarter, The Market, Espai Far, Passeig del Carme, Bunkers.
Through the hackathons and Creatives Labs, each country will select 5 winner proposes. The Grant size will be between 10,000-15,000 euros per game, depending on the type of game (10.000 euros for analog games and 15.000 for digital games).
