The Tulse Luper Journey - Putting Together The Pieces Of A Legendary Puzzle
The Tulse Luper Journey is an online interactive exploration of European 20th century history. Based on director Peter Greenaway’s filmtrilogy ‘The Tulse Luper Suitcases’, the purpose of the game is to reconstruct the film’s main character’s – Tulse Luper – life.
The writer and collector Tulse Luper, spent most of his life under lock and key. Luper was supposedly born in 1922 in Newport, Wales and presumed dead in 1978. His life is continually shrouded in mystery and doubt, but it seems that Luper has been present at some of the key historical events of the 20th century. During the game numerous hints are given; there are film fragments, puzzles and letters written by different characters that play a part in the story, giving the audience chunks and pieces of Tulse Luper’s walk of life. The extensive nature of the story is ideal for a complex game structure, which will be centered around the 92 suitcases that Luper left behind – 92 puzzles which must be solved by the player to reveal the ‘mystery’ surrounding him. After registration for the game you will start as a research trainee in one of the three institutes. After completing a few suitcase games your rank will increase and you will be able to travel to one of the other research facilities where you can widen your search for the life and journey of Tulse Luper.
