Who made it?

Taras Young

What is it?

A realtime text adventure based on the live data being fed from the festivals server. Taras says: “I furiously coded in order to get the thing done by the deadline of 4.15pm. I even had time to add a few comedy bits in – additional random phrases that, I hoped, would turn it from a rehash of boring listings into something more resembling life on the streets during Festival time.”

What data does it use?

Edinburgh festivals listings API provided by FestivalsLab.
