TRA James square

The City of Melbourne and Pop Up Playground invited people to take part in an interactive game that changed the way they looked at the city – forever!

Using a smartphone, a blue Melbourne Bike Share bike and a helmet, the interactive game 1000 Cities turned the CBD into a mythical adventure where riders fough monsters, collect treasure and explored the hidden parts of the city.

1000 Cities was a game by Pop Up Playground and the City of Melbourne based on Joseph Campbell’s book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces.
