Background
While Dreamhack might be the world’s largest digital lifestyle festival, it’s only open for a few days. And with over 50K+ visitors to the LAN, esports tournaments, cosplay, live music, and expo area, the signal-to-noise ratio is far from ideal.

Therefore we created the The Cyperpunk Quest which is a physical scavenger hunt at Dreamhack Winter 2019.
Solution
We created a printed circuit board that contains the playing field for the puzzle. They can be hacked with programs of thin sheets of transparent plastic that slides over the circuitboard and blocks out irrelevant info. Combined with the PCB they reveal clues and information. Programs are received from cosplayers by fulfilling tasks given to the player.

After solving the puzzle and combining keys, the player can decipher a unique code to collect their prize!


Trivia:
“I’ve been to Dreamhack 5 times and this is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. I am now so hype!”

The Cyberpunk Quest was played for more than 200 hours during Dreamhack Winter 2019
