YoWay is a mobile-based game concept that mixes augmented spaces, interactive narrative, literature and urban sports. It features a series of interrelated missions by way of intrigue and mystery stories. The user resolves the mysteries by walking and listening to story fragments, and following clues that the story reveals to decide what new place to visit. 

The GTI and Alquimia presented Yoway in the 9th edition of NOVUM – the Festival of Science, Technology and Innovation of Barcelona. The event, which took place in the renewed Plaça de Les Glories, aims at bringing the general public closer to the science and research world. The event was attended by over 1000 visitors, especially families with children. For this occasion, Yoway presented a collection of three stories in which the player is transported to the Plaça de les Glòries in Barcelona in 1919 with the aim of solving a crime, as a thriller, while discovering the history of the area.

The technology and design of YoWay has been used in other projects as Missió Ciutatl'Hon, commissioned by the majorship of l'Hospitalet.
