Augmented Reality

Augmented reality (or AR) involves the integration of virtual elements in the actual surroundings, for example two-dimensional or 3D graphics and texts. Reality is hence augmented or overlaid by a virtual layer. AR has its counterpart in augmented virtuality, where a virtual world is augmented by real aspects. 

Example:
You are looking at a building through your smartphone in camera mode. The screen shows a virtual suitcase in front of the real building that isn’t actually there in reality. Both the building and the suitcase can be elements of the tripventure game. AR thereby links the real city to the story told in the tripventure game.

Augmented reality is a feature of all tripventure games. Virtual characters, objects and information augment the image in the smartphone camera – turning the real city into your playing field.

tripventure

tripventure games are location-based games, which means that they are played outdoors in the respective city using a smartphone. Site-specific characters, riddles and information are meanwhile displayed as the player moves from one game location to the next.

The game’s relevant content is superimposed onto the camera image by way of GPS data. They will only work in the real city and are tied to a location, with virtual objects and characters only appearing at their “real” locations. 

Exploring the city with tripventure

The tripventure games enable you to playfully explore European cities and discover interesting places. While you are playing, you receive details of sights and buildings of each city: by solving crimes as Inspector Tripton; bringing down the Berlin Wall as an Agent or playing through an adventurous episode of Secret City. Families with kids can also go on a pizza hunt with Rocca Ratcha.
