ARTigo project
ARTigo game

ARTigo is an online game with the aim to supply artworks with tags. The same artwork is simultaneously shown to you and a co-player. The game now consists in describing the artwork accurately with tags. A tag can describe what you see on the artwork or remarks on style, quality or emotions. For each artwork, you have 60 seconds for your input. You get points for the tags identical to the ones entered by your co-player or another player in a previous round. The more tags per artwork are matched, the more points you get during the five rounds of the game. Every entered tag is saved and improves the search for artworks. As for the search however, only those tags entered at least twice for an artwork and thus marked in blue are relevant.

On the left side of the artwork you see the tags you already entered. According to the points, some are marked in different colours:

  • Black tags have never been entered before for this artwork. You don't get any points.
  • Dark blue tags were entered by your co-player in this round. Both of you get 25 points.
  • Light blue tags have been entered for this artwork in previous games. You get 5 points.

As to the taboo game, some taboo words are indicated additionally. You cannot use them for the description of the artwork because they had already been verified.

After five rounds you can review the artworks with additional information. Title, artist, location and date of origin are displayed.
