What to expect
Play a city game using your smartphone in Marseille’s district by the sea and go on a walking tour filled with vast plazas and narrow streets, vibrant street art, cosy boutiques, all overflowing with history. Solve clues to untangle the past of one of the oldest neighborhoods in Marseille. This path will lead you through the streets of the oldest city of France, brimming with architectural magic.
Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions so you won't need a map, GPS, or guide. As you solve the problem and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked.
Dear friend, this is Walt, your director. Welcome to the Phocean city! As the star of the movie, the producers and I decided to have you explore your role through the various filming locations.
You play the Queen of Massalia, and your character is on a mission to find her son who was taken away by a mysterious dark figure. You are in disguise, hidden under a scarf and must stay secret. There is already unrest in the city since your husband’s death, some people unwilling to be led by a woman.
Tap into your imagination and take some risks. You'll do great.
