DSC_1086NODEM 2014, the annual Nordic digital heritage conference is underway in Warsaw, Poland. The event started on Monday December 1 with a day of keynotes. Today in turn the focus was on academic presentations and among them our Futuristic History project presented a talk about creating the Luostarinmäki Adventure game.

On the stage were Tuomas Mäkilä and Timo Korkalainen from DFT and Lauri Viinikkala from the Department of Finnish History. The talk was well received and sparked an intense discussion about both the technology behind the application and the future possibilities of the concept.
