Traces of Hope  launched this week, a new ARG (Alternate Reality Game) for British Red Cross written by studio resident Hazel Grian and produced by Bristol digital agency Enable

The immersive game mashes up storytelling and detective work in the context of a compelling 21st century narrative. It's centred around a 16 year old boy Joseph who is looking for his mother and the game aims to engage young people in the British Red Cross'  Civiilians in Conflict campaign.

In the run up to launch there's been a load of press attention including the BBC, Reuters, Metro and a host of other national and international sources. Head to www.tracesofhope.com and help Joseph find his mum.
