Resurgam is an indie production, supported by the University and the Arts Council, England. It is written by Hannah Wood, and created and produced by Story Juice, digital art and technology graduates Mutant Labs and the University’s world-renowned Institute of Digital Arts and Technology (i-DAT), with actors from Rogue Theatre giving the event an authentic historical feel.
In September 2013, Plymouth underwent a digital transformation, as hundreds of adventurers take part in the city’s first location-based live game. Resurgam: The Lost Pearl of Plymouth saw gamers using mobile technology to navigate their way around the city’s maritime heritage.
In addition to exploring the incredible history of Plymouth, participants experienced reality merging with storytelling as live immersive theatre brought the game to life in all sorts of unexpected ways.
