Glitched

GLITCHED - Quest for the Lost MacGuffin

  • 24 September — 20 November 2016 *on now

A MacGuffin is a plot device in the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation. The specific nature of a MacGuffin is typically unimportant to the overall plot.
Glitched: Quest for the Lost MacGuffin is a game-like journey in which the player explores QUAD Gallery, looking for five fragments of a ‘lost’ MacGuffin. These fragments exist as ‘Augmented Reality’ (AR) - visible only through the screen of a handheld tablet computer. Once the five fragments have been found the ‘lost’ MacGuffin is revealed.
But beware! There are decoy MacGuffins – can you find the five fragments of the lost MacGuffin?! And to throw you off the scent, the gallery is full of ‘glitches’ – real-life corruptions or fissures in the everyday world around us that will make your journey around the gallery very interesting indeed!

Suitable for

  • Any age
