In an effort to promote the concept of gamification in tourism, MED GAIMS is releasing an online mini game, in which the project promotes the 40 games being developed in Spain, Italy, Lebanon and Jordan.

The simple adventure game takes you through key touristic sites of the MED GAIMS project all across the Mediterranean in the quest to find the missing pieces of an ancient stone tablet that holds the key to unlocking of the secret of the pirate Black Eye. The game is filled with historical nuggets scattered throughout the dialogs.

The game can be played in any browser with simple click and drag controls.

The MED GAIMS is an EU funded (€2.3 million) project under the ENI CBC Med Programme for cross-border cooperation in the Mediterranean area. It aims to revamp tourism in the region by shifting the paradigm of tourism to an active interaction rather than a passive one. This will be achieved via employing experience design through the context of gamification. Game mechanics will be utilized to highlight a novel story telling approach in tourism. This will expand to an experience that will not only serve to enhance the tourism experience, but also to increase the influx of tourists to less known sites. This project is gearing up to be a grass roots movement that engages the local community to become developers rather than users of the project outcome.
