Can You See Me Now? is a game that happens simultaneously online and on the streets. Players from anywhere in the world can play online in a virtual city against members of Blast Theory.

Playing Times Thursday, Friday, Saturday 16.00 till 19.00

No registration required, anyone can play this game online, from your home, office or come to the Come Out & Play HQ to play it on one of our terminals there.

Tracked by satellites, Blast Theory's runners appear online next to your player on a map of the city. On the streets, handheld computers showing the positions of online players guide the runners in tracking you down. With up to 20 people playing online at a time, players can exchange tactics and send messages to Blast Theory. An audio stream from Blast Theory's walkie talkies allows you to eavesdrop on your pursuers: getting lost, cold and out of breath on the streets of the city.

Can You See Me Now? is a collaboration between Blast Theory and the Mixed Reality Lab, University of Nottingham.
