“AnaCapri: The Dream”, a unique first person adventure game for the PC, uses more than 8,000 detailed photographs taken around the real island of Capri and its charming village of AnaCapri. Created by Got Game Entertainment, the game allows players to search the island, learn its history while searching for clues to a mystery, or simply take a vivid virtual tour of the island in “exploration mode”.
