The Game

Bygone Pursuits consists of three adventures, one corresponding to each street at Fort Edmonton park.

Narrative

Each adventure of the game has a narrative associated with it, with each question in the scavenger hunt reinforcing the theme for the adventure with which it is associated. The game character from the first adventure, 1885, is the father of the characters in the other 2 adventures (1905 and 1920s).

1885

In the 1885 adventure, the player is an RCMP officer headquartered in Fort Saskatchewan. This character seeks to bring law and order to the west by settling land disputes, arresting vagrants, and questioning the Edmonton settlement's populace about other crimes and disruptions to the peace. Upon completing the adventure, this character retires and marries, and has two children.

1905

The 1905 character is the eldest son of the mountie in the 1885 adventure and is an investigative reporter

1920s

Game Mechanics

The game is initiated by scanning a QR tag on a pamphlet outlining the game. The player then completes a registration process, then chooses which adventure to play.

Answers to the questions can be found by reading signage in the park and by interacting with interpreters.
