The big company NeoCities S.A. has moved to Barcelona with the goal of eliminating all traces of identity and converting the city into a neutral, minimalist and timeless space . At the same time, the Catalan journalist Mercè J. wrote the article “Barcelona from inside” where she exposes the problems of the city and how the struggles of neighborhoods try to face them, converting it into a city more fair, human and open.
NeoCities S.A. does not want this article to come to light, which is why they hacked the journalist’s computer, who has since gone into hiding for fear of reprisals from the entity.
Mercè J. calls you to help her recover the documents and testimonies stolen by the company. Will you be able to rebuild “Barcelona from inside” and put the truth at the service of society?
In this mission you will have to walk the network of streets of the old town, from the Mercat del Born to the Rambla del Raval, passing by the ironic Plaza of George Orwell or the controversial Forat de la Vergonya, and see Barcelona on the authentic side and its relation to inclusion, urbanism, feminism and sustainability, the pillars of this “controversial” article .
