Dossier - The last years

The website was a great success for many years. Alok Nandi considers the following achievements as the greatest successes:

  • the metaphor of the “narrative labyrinth”
  • the journey into retro-futurism
  • new audiences getting into immersion
  • the meet-up for the Obscurnautes gathering
  • the Urbicande-la-Neuve augmented reality series
