A transmedia game to discover the Country of Cathars

Transmedia fiction, Video game, Current work

Linking more than 20 sites, a unique transmedia experience

Eric Viennot was chosen by the French department of Aude to design a transmedia scenario for the tourists in the country of Cathars.
Eric spent one year travelling through the territory, visiting several sites: the city of Carcassonne, the famous Peyrepertuse and Quéribus castles, the numerous Abbeys like Fontfroide or Saint-Papoul, the mythical Montségur castle… More than 20 sites will stage a story Eric Viennot wants to anchor in modernity, while faithfully transcripting the story of this country, including the political and religious issues.
