I Like Frank (2004)

I Like Frank, a game in partnership with Blast Theory, invites players to search for Frank through the streets of Adelaide. Online Players move through a virtual model of the city, opening location speci!c photos. One photo reveals the location of a hidden object. Online Players then enlist a Street Player to go to that location and retrieve it.

In the Exeter Hotel, in a pool hall and in saddle bags on bicycles were four di"erent postcards each with a question for the Street Player to answer such as, ‘Who do you think of when you feel alone?’

Once an Online Player persuades a Street Player to fetch a postcard, they can enter a new virtual Adelaide saturated in red where Frank is waiting in a photographic ‘Future Land’.
