Global Kids Youth Leaders launched the location based game they created using the platform ARIS. The game is the first on a series of games developed in collaboration with The New York Public Library and as part of the NYC Haunts program. The game which takes place in the Fordham area of the Bronx, is about a detective that must solve the mystery of a missing child. It was presented to other youth from the Fordham Library branch. The game deals with local history of the Bronx, with the author Edgar Allan Poe, and civic action around the issue of clean air.
