Magic: The Gathering on Gather |
Gather is an interactive meeting platform featuring proximity video chat, making it as close to the real deal as a digital event can get.
And, best of all, it’s fully customisable, with the final product reminiscent of vintage pixel games.
So, we ventured into Gather with Magic: The Gathering to create interactive experiences for Strixhaven: School of Mages and Adventures in the Forgotten Realms.
School of Mages
To celebrate Strixhaven: School of Mages, we recreated the university and all of its five colleges in pixel form. Lore, puzzles, quests, NPCs and treasures filled the space.
Not only that: between Prismari, Quandrix, Witherbloom, Lorehold, Silverquill, the Biblioplex, Firejolt Cafe and Bow’s End Tavern, our guests had a lot to explore.
Forbes called the event “a masterclass in pandemic event planning“.
Adventures in the Forgotten Realms
As Magic: The Gathering met Dungeons & Dragons for a very special set, we invited content creators and press to traverse a dungeon in search of ten exclusive Adventures in the Forgotten Realms cards.
It wasn’t an easy task: there were over 80 rooms to explore, with hundreds of NPCs and interactive objects. 60 creators streamed the event, which was then made available to all through a limited-edition template. The space can also be accessed here.
