Honouring Jules Verne legacy, this Transmedia adventure takes the events of his novel "Around the World in 80 Days" as true facts, but something very important was left untold.

Fiction vs Reality

After receiving an unsettling letter from his mother, João Mello, a Portuguese young man living in Melbourne, launches an appeal on social media: he urgently needs something from Porto in order to help his ailing sister, requiring the locals' assistance until his arrival a few weeks later. As participants advance in the experience and gather more information, they will find themselves in the midst of a centuries-old conflict between two families.

This experience has been designed to engage participants on different online platforms - Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Youtube - and the physical realm, crafting the main characters as real persons to encourage empathy and foster participation in this adventure. The resolution to the main story is exposed in a live event with the two main characters confronting each other and asking the audience to decide who has a better claim. Two endings have been written, but only one is revealed.

"Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real." Jules Verne
