1948, NFB and Stan Douglas’ New App

1948, NFB and Stan Douglas' New App


Once you get used to the navigation it’s easy to move through the environments and it’s fun poking around parts of the old Hotel Vancouver and Hogan’s Alley. The spirit of both places has been captured well. Objects that glow are tapped to bring up stories, which in a nice touch, are told by etherial ghost-like presences. And with headphones the ambient sounds are quite immersive.

There are nice touches too, like the view out of windows and doors which give you glimpses of the city beyond that are reasonably accurate.
