Hunting down criminals in Berlin, finding hidden objects across London – location-based games attract an increasing number of gamers. While being a lot of fun to play, they hold a variety of challenges for game designers.
This workshop kicks-off with an overview of location based games and trends given by Michael Sträubig, professional designer of location based-games. We will shortly introduce tripventure, a new platform for location-based and story-focused games using AR. tripventures combine the key features of point and click adventures (riddles, inventory, game-in-games) with opportunities of location-based gaming.
Anne-Katrin Ulrich is General Manager of tripventure, a platform for location-based and story-focused games realized via the tripengine. tripventure has been developed by sprylab technologies, a young software company based in Berlin.
