MetroDemic is a 90-minute game played in San Jose. The game is designed as company team building event but also makes for a fantastic afternoon outing with family and friends.
The San Jose course covers approximately three square blocks in the downtown core. The game starts near the San Jose Museum of Art with a play zone extending out around Plaza de César Chávez, the Civic, the Tech Museum, and the Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph.
“San Jose was a fantastic downtown area to explore” stated Kris Neese, co-founder of MetroDemic and the designer for this course. “The city offers fascinating history as an original capital of California and with events like the Chinatown fire of 1887. It also launched claims a lot of modern history in the tech sector as a hub within Silicon Valley. I think people are going to have a fantastic time exploring some nooks and crannies in downtown when they play our game!”
In MetroDemic, teams of 2-4 people race around downtown San Jose to save the city from a deadly epidemic. The teams have 90 minutes to save as many lives as possible by discovering “outbreak” sites that are hidden in the city and solving trivia and other brain puzzles. The game is played on a smartphone and can be launched at any time once a team registers.
San Jose is the sixth market that MetroDemic has arrived in since it’s launch in at the end of 2016. Feedback from MetroDemic players in Fort Worth, Dallas, Los Angeles, Denver, and Seattle has been very positive and over five million lives were saved in 2016!
