Tag8? (Day 8") catapults a single
person or group unexpectedly in an individually designed, interactive
adventure story that lead through the cities or countryside.
With hidden actors, mysterious hints, usable items and the permanent uncertainty what is real and what isnīt.
(If you happen to know the movie "The Game" with Michael Douglas, you already have an idea about Tag8...)

is Saturday morning. Markus has reserved the day for his girlfriend who

Story example 3 An

Course of events There is always some goal to be achieved. A mission against criminals, freeing a kidnapped person or finding a treasure. Throughout the city or countryside, characters (actors) can be met. Clues, hints and background information advance the story. Usable items like keys or a rope and hook prove to be invaluable for the success of the mission.
