|10|. Create a protest flyer



Storyline: After talking to the Editor, the player will head over to a group of protesters who will hand them a protest flyer. The protesters will be a new Conversation, while the flyer will be an Item. First, you’ll create the flyer. Then,


DEEPER DIVE

What is an item? Items are game objects that players can pick up, drop (on the map), and destroy (vs. simply visit and view them). Like Plaques, they include a title, text, media (image, video, or sound), and an icon. When players pick up (or are given an item), it appears in their Inventory. Images embedded in Items can pinched and zoomed.
