Steam Hat's Active Fiction Adventure 2: Cyber Angel art game exhibit was originally created for IngenuityFest 2013, Cleveland's huge Festival of Art & Technology. It is an extension of the Active Fiction Adventure 1: Underground game, but can can be played by itself.

We were absolutely slammed with players during the entire 3 days of the festival and enjoyed talking with them to get their thoughts and input on the game. People of all ages, from young to old, circled the the games for hours playing. Some of the best moments of the festival occurred when large crowds of families and groups of friends worked alongisde complete strangers, trying to get through the game together.

“ Loved, loved, loved the art installation at IngenuityFest this year! My boyfriend and I were drawn to it Friday night, circling around and around trying to figure out what it was. 'It's like a game!' we both exclained to each other. We came back Saturday specifically to investigate more and spent about an hour going on the adventure. What a wonderful concept. ”
