Equipped with a smartphone and the intention to take life on, the players enter the tempting digital world of MEPHISTO&co., where values and ideals are up for sale. Upon logging into the game, the deal between Faust and MEPHISTO&co. is sealed; and thus begins the game of seduction: how far are the players willing to go? Can success and beauty really be purchased?
This interactive game is developed by game developer NOLGONG and initiated by the Goethe-Institut Seoul. For the first and only time in Malaysia, the game was held in Hin Bus Depot Art Center, Penang.
