The Journey - A mobile location based adventure

The Journey is a new and unique adventure game experience for your mobile phone. You are in the role of an infamous detective and have to solve a mysterious case not only by making it through the story, but also by walking to different locations.

Gone are the days where you watch a virtual character moving around on your display. Now you have to move yourself. The game is aware of your movement. Right at the beginning when you as the detective have to leave your bureau and go outside, you have to take your mobile and go through the streets of the city you live in.

The game saves the locations and in the course of the story you will have to return to your bureau and walk back to the place where you started playing.

To play the game, read the text and scroll through it with the joystick of your Series 60 mobile phone. When you've reached the end of the block, press the joystick to continue in the game. As the story unfolds, you will have to walk to a new location. How far you have to go depends on where you live - it might be 50 meters or some hundred meters.
