Thanks to a new interactive route using top-notch technologies, it is now possible to discover the royal Castle of Amboise in a fun way. Visitors are immersed in the world of heroic fantasy games that are very popular among teenagers and young adults. In this way, they will relive the major events of the beginnings of the reign of François I in Amboise in 1518. This route on iPad mini is also provided with an English subtitled version, allowing foreign tourists to take part of this epic adventure.

"Au service du Roy” the interactive route of the Castle
Amboise, 1518… After returning victorious from Italy, François I still had to fight for power: crime, seduction, diplomacy, and conspirations could still ruin his dream of glory and Empire. Through this interactive route «Au service du Roy», visitors will fight, avoid traps, and solve the plots of the Court through cartoon reproductions and games requiring skill, rapidity, and thinking.

“This innovative project is a novelty in Val de Loire. It feeds on the recent experience of virtual restitution and investigation games but it offers a complete scenario-based path inspired by real events.

This is a true immersion in the past enriched with factual historical information”
explains Marc Metay, Manager of the château royal d’Amboise project.

The route was created by the company 100 millions de pixels with the technical means of Motion Capture.

The Castle and its interior designs of 1518 were integrally reconstituted, enabling the players to experience total immersion, at the heart of a scenario-based adventure, enhanced with characters played by actors whose voices were recorded in the Tonwelt studios in Berlin with postproduction managed by the company Comédiart.
