China Heart goes live – a mobile storytelling experience

January 27th, 2011 by Seb Chan

China Heart launches tonight, Thursday January 27, at the Powerhouse and the ‘general public’ (more likely, niche publics) can start playing it with all the special real-world additions between January 30 and February 13.

Of course, you can play it outside this period – and you can even play it without being in Sydney.

If you have an iPhone then download the free iPhone Apphttp://from.ph/chinaheart

Or if you don’t then you can try the web version, which also nicely reformats for mobile web browsers.

Read the backstory to China Heart in my earlier post.

China Heart is presented by d/Lux/MediaArts in association with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, the Powerhouse Museum and the Project Factory.

China Heart is supported by Screen NSW, Screen Australia, the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and City of Sydney.

    Great work from Powerhouse, as usual! Beautifully designed as well. If I were playing in Sydney (believe me with the winter as difficult as it has been this year, I’d love to be in Sydney!) would the app be location based?

  • Tried the web version on my Nokia N97. It was simple to use and looked good on the screen.

    Great story! I loved it.
