Inspired by the Museum of London’s rich collections, the Great Fire 1666 maps allow players to explore the City of London and experience the story of the fire like never before. Uncover the causes of this terrible event, help fight the fire and eventually try your hand at rebuilding London. Each map will include challenges that help players delve deeper into the story and experience what it was like to be part of the Great Fire.
This second map let's you play through each day of the Great Fire of London in a series of mini- games:
- Help try put out the fire
- Rescue Londoner's possessions from burning houses
- Help Samuel Pepys bury his cheese and wine
- Try to save St Paul's Cathedral
- Blow up houses to save the city
Along the way you'll meet famous Londoners from the time including Thomas Farriner, the Mayor of London and Kind Charles II.
This project is a collaboration between the Museum of London, digital producer Adam Clarke, professional mapbuilders Blockworks and game designer Dragnoz.
The third and final Great Fire 1666 map is scheduled for release in February 2017 starting after the fire helping to rebuild the city.
