 NDP’18 is coming up real soon. If you’re even remotely patriotic or just want bragging rights, chances are you entered the yearly ballot in hopes of getting tickets for the show – but you’ve come up empty. Don’t worry, you still got chance

Luckily for you, the team in charge of this year’s NDP has released augmented reality (AR) app NDP Jalan! which allows you to play games, win prizes and, yes, try your luck – again -at securing some NDP tickets! 

Its interface looks like Pokemon GO, but it revolves around three specific locations – Civic District*, Botanic Gardens and Marina Bay. And instead of waiting around to catch some virtual monsters, complete interactive quests on the app to score discount vouchers to use IRL

*Note: The Arts-themed trail at Civic District has already concluded, but you can still stand a chance to win prizes for the next 2 themes at Botanic Gardens and Marina Bay. 


How it works


Step 1: Download the app on Apple App Store or Android Play Store

The app is only 160mb in size, so it won’t take up much space in your phone. Download and get freebies. Or not, your call. 

Step 2: Create your avatar 

Customise your name, gender and the colour of your clothes – there are 12 colours for you to choose from, but we recommend red because its Singapore’s birthday and it’s an auspicious colour for us NDP ticket hopefuls.

Select a design for your backpack – these designs are hand-drawn by talented kids from special education schools.

Step 3: Head down to Botanic Gardens or Marina Bay to begin your journey. P.S. The app provides directions for you to get there via public transport. Many sweet, much considerate.

Once you’ve arrived, the map will be loaded via GPS and you can start exploring the trails. All you have to do is follow the arrow on the map to get to the locations for each quest. 

Step 4: Tackle the quests in the trail
