Arcane Technologies is proud to announce that it will pilot the Acoatica project, a new kind of interactive experience that will be deployed at the Parc Découverte Nature. The new tourism project located in Coaticook, Quebec will require investments of over $ 2,700,000.
The project aims to transform the entire site (buildings and outdoor spaces) into huge levels as part of an interactive and immersive survival game inside which the visitor becomes the hero. Deployed throughout the site thanks to ubiquitous and accessible technologies, Acoatica will use a playful, informative and interactive approach that values nature and reveals the uniqueness of the site while offering an extraordinary experience to live with family or group .
«We have proven ourselves in the past, but that doesn’t mean it has been easier. We had to do our homework and present a project as exciting as Foresta Lumina.»
– Caroline Sage, Director, Parc Découverte Nature
«Knowing how successful Foresta Lumina has been, let’s say we have pressure on our shoulders, but it is healthy. Caroline [Sage] really pushes us to get the wow effect. There is a lot of content to communicate, but our role is to make it interesting and pleasant for visitors.»
– Mathieu Benoit, CEO, Arcane Technologies
Arcane Technologies will lead a multidisciplinary team combining expertise in interactive software development, 2D and 3D content, and informative content.
« These investments will enable communities and businesses in all regions of the country to develop tourism products and experiences that will attract more tourists all year long. This will help the communities, large and small, take advantage of the global tourism boom, diversify their economies and create good middle-class jobs, while showcasing the Canadian brand, which is centred around the shared values of diversity and equality. »
– The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie
« Innovation doesn’t happen just in big cities: it occurs in all of Canada’s regions. That’s why our regional development agencies play a key role in helping companies turn their innovations into economic growth and high-quality jobs for Canadians. Through the Canadian Experiences Fund, our government is investing in the development of our tourism sector and in the economic potential of our communities. »
– The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister responsible for CED
