Cambridge company offers £250 to the first person who cracks the REVEAL code
The first person to crack the REVEAL code and send in the solution by email will win a prize of £250.
Developed by Cambridge arts company, Collusion, REVEAL is an exciting active reality adventure that has been unfolding in King’s Lynn & West Norfolk this festive season. Each Sunday from 25 November to 23 December, a light projection and live theatre performance tell more of the story of a young Syrian, Maya, whose quest is to find her lost love Joe, a Norfolk lad, and save King's Lynn. Every day a new clue is revealed. The clues are augmented reality markers dotted around the borough, which can be viewed using a smartphone and the REVEAL website.
The aim of the project is two-fold; to create an innovative, new way of story-telling and to encourage people to visit heritage sights they may not have thought about visiting before.
REVEAL was launched during the King’s Lynn Christmas lights switch-on event in the Tuesday Market Place, and since then new projections have been revealed at the Minster and the Custom House. Interest in the game has been building and in the first two weeks almost 800 people, many from Cambridge, are playing and hunting for clues. And now, REVEAL is offering £250 to the first person to email in the sentence that the clues reveal.
Rachel Drury, director of Collusion, said: “Each clue will give you a letter, and once you’ve collected all the letters, they’ll spell out a sentence. If you’re the first to get the sentence, you won’t just have the satisfaction of solving the puzzle, you’ll also win £250! We made the code hard to crack deliberately, but we do expect it to be solved because we know there are some clever people out there. If you haven’t been playing so far, don’t worry; you can catch up on all the clues and the episodes at revealkl.com. The competition is open until 4pm on Sunday 23rd December, so you can be clue-hunting right up until the deadline, and then join us for the final performance in the Tuesday Market Place.”
To enter the competition, the complete correct sentence must be emailed to email@example.com by 4pm on Sunday 23 December. The winner will be contacted within 24 hours. The full terms and conditions are available at revealkl.com/rules.
REVEAL is a joint project between Cambridge arts organisation Collusion and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk. The project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
