The Commonwealth Walkway Trust came to us seeking an interactive storytelling application to accompany the unveiling of their newest walkway right in the heart of Edmonton. The app was designed to encourage Edmonton's citizens and visitors to get out and explore the most beautiful parts of the city, all while learning about its vibrant history.
