„Theodor“ is a game we developed it specifically for the museum in Neuruppin. It is about the famous German novelist and poet Theodor Fontane. In the game, he lost his memory and needs help from the players to gain it back.
The game provides kids and teens with a playful environment to get a new perspective on Fontane’s life and works.
The game was developed with kids groups who acted as „critical friends“ and who received an introduction workshop to game development.

The game’s concept is based on results from game camps that were held with kids and teens during the fontane.200 program in 2019.
