Target: BACRIM is an immersive and interactive documentary game that exposes the atrocities of Colombia’s paramilitary forces in one of its most violent regions. The producers combine both non - fiction and fiction to create a game that places the user at the heart of the story. Through this docufiction , which is anchored in augmented reality, the user or participant experiences danger first - hand. For the user, this violence is a game. For the people who live in this region, it is a reality. Target: BACRIM wants to blur tha t distinction. We therefore create a world, where fiction and non - fiction are interrelated, where genres merge and where individual disciplines escape the shackles of tradition to converge and create an interactive documentary that places user experience a t its core
