Sherpa

 

How far do you have to go to fulfill the dream of a real mountaineer? Where is the line between tourism and abuse?

Four players start a journey controlling their adventurous tourists on the surface of a mountain sculpture, and they help them climb it. During the Game, they receive a lot of support from a Sherpa (mountain guides in the Himalaya). Besides navigating, translating and informing about the local culture, the Sherpa literally carries the tourist up to the summit in the end. On the sound level, the players experience through interviews from real trekking guides the daily life and the difficulties about being a Sherpa. Then, they can decide on their own, how far they should go towards fulfilling the romantic dream of becoming a modern summiter.
