This experience uses augmented reality storytelling to move participants through a physical game-like experience. It utilises the classic ‘level-up’ function of gaming where tasks need to be completed and clues decipher in order to progress.
Teams scan images on posters or other printed material to generate the computer generated creatures. They must listen to the clues delivered by the creatures then fulfill any request they are given. An example of this may be the Lunchbox Thing who will explain that he will happily provide information, in exchange for a healthy lunchbox. An unhealthy lunch box will also be a choice, however participants need to scan the healthy option to progress in the game. Once this is done they will be given the clue for the location of the next monster.
The Thing in the Wall is available for download from the Apple App Store.
