Miracle Beneath the Heavens
Historic Interactive Museum Installation
“Miracle Beneath The Heavens” is an immersive interactive table experience created for the Magdalen Island Museum. This experience is designed to take players on a journey through time, allowing them to experience first-hand what it was like for early settlers to escape the potato famine in Ireland, cross the Atlantic Ocean and get shipwrecked, and arrive on the coast of the Magdalen Islands.
The game consists of three mini-games where players can test their skills. The first level challenges players to navigate the treacherous waters of the Atlantic Ocean, avoiding dangerous rocks and unpredictable currents. The second level of the game is where things get intense. After the boat capsizes, players are challenged to rescue as many people as possible. At the third level, players begin their exploration of the sandy shores of the Magdalen Islands. They come across the scattered wreckage of the ship that brought them there and must dig deep into the sand and search through the debris to uncover the survivors' belongings.
This interactive table experience is the perfect way for museum goes to immerse themselves in the rich history of the Magdalen Islands and gain a new appreciation for the struggles faced by early settlers.
