Journey to the End of the Night

Erlangen, June 12 2014, 8pm.

The Journey

The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.

Journey Erlangen is a race through the city's streets. You will run (or walk) from check point to check point to your final destination. But be careful! Avoid the chasers and don't get caught! If you do get caught — catch 'em yourself! Now your one of THEM.

The Rules

Start as a runner

  • Tie your yellow ribbon visibly around your arm, keep the red for later.
  • Start walking or running to the first checkpoint you can find on the map.
  • Cars, taxies, bikes or public transport are not allowed, only your own feet.
  • Evade the chasers

  • Players with a red ribbon will try to catch you.
  • If they succeed, give them your yellow ribbon and put on the red one.
  • You become a chaser yourself and your new goal is to collect as many yellow ribbons as you can.
  • Some areas are marked on your map as safe zones, where capturing runners is not possible.
  • Run for your life

       

    If you can make it, hit every checkpoint and arrive at the final destination.
    Don’t forget to have fun!

    The App

    We created an android app for the journey. It is not necessary for the game, but we believe it will make it more fun for you.

    • Track your movement and compare it with other players after the game
    • Know exactly where you and where the checkpoints are
    • Remember when you passed a checkpoint
    • Get statistics about your game
    • Optionaly share your location with us, so we can create neat graphics of the course of the game




    Get the app at the app store or (if you don't use google play) send an e-mail to tilman-journeyapp [at] t-animal [dot] de to get it.
