New interactive game celebrates RAF's centenary in the heart of King's Lynn
A new interactive game has been unveiled in the heart of Lynn to celebrate the centenary of the formation of the RAF.
Players can try their hand at four levels, each featuring aircraft associated with RAF Marham, in the projection on the Custom House, which was launched on Monday.
The game, which was commissioned by West Norfolk Council and devised by Wisbech-based agency Tinfish Creative, will be available to play each evening until Remembrance Sunday. Controllers have been installed on the Purfleet Quay.
Borough council deputy leader Elizabeth Nockolds said: “We’re very proud of our close relationship with RAF Marham, and the support we offer to all military personnel as members of the Armed Forces Covenant.
"We wanted something unique and remarkable to celebrate the RAF’s centenary, and this installation is certainly that.
"It combines the innovative technology and creativity we have with the history of RAF Marham.
"Anyone who remembers the fun and excitement of playing classic arcade games such as Pacman and Pong on this beautiful building will know this new installation will be unmissable.”
The first person to have a go at the game was Wing Commander Matt Bressani, from RAF Marham.
He said: "RAF Marham are delighted that the borough council has chosen to celebrate RAF100 with us by creating this interactive projection.
"We are always humbled by the support we receive from the local community but this year people have gone above and beyond to celebrate our centenary with us."
