About the project
"Spies of Barrie" is a highly interactive, real world game about spies. This is a new work and created in part thanks to funding from the Department of Culture. You can expect to see curious characters, clues, and puzzles scattered all over town, during three specific weeks in Sept/Oct, as well as play online via websites and social media.
