Project Vanguard: A Modern Day Scottish Odyssey is Hitcher Encounters’ latest ARG commissioned by the immersive Learning Research Organization for the 2024 Conference in Scotland. 


Structured as a missing person game, this bespoke intimate design invites conference attendees to engage with featured research, experiment the game mechanics and evaluate its application in educational environments. 

As an investigator, your job is to decipher cryptic codes and untangle a web of research in the dark ethers of the internet to find the missing Dr. Bryce and bring her back to reality. Players find themselves drawn in multiple directions, navigating the ambiguous territories of cyber malevolence and one woman’s odyssey to demonstrate the invaluable aspects of interaction design.
