TheJournal.ie gave a sneak peak of what was inside and talked to some of those behind the project. But now that Granby Park is open until 22 September there is even more opportunity to see how the former vacant site has been transformed into a creative space for art and music.

94 Seconds is a simple word game in which players are given 94 seconds to give as many answers as possible to a series of questions. The questions all take the form of a simple category description and a letter with which the player must start their answer. Answers must be typed in manually using the device’s keyboard — on iOS, this supports autocorrect to help with spelling, on Android it will depend on what keyboard software the device is running — and entered as quickly as possible. The player is continuously bombarded with new questions until the time limit expires, at which point their performance is evaluated.
