Abstract

In this paper, we describe Antroposeeni, a mixed reality game designed and developed for mobile devices. Antroposeeni utilizes location-based services, GPS for tracking users and augmented reality techniques for displaying captivating audiovisual content and creating rich experiences. Our demonstration will introduce a pilot version of the game, which encompasses narrative elements of the game mediated through developed media technologies. The goal for the demonstration is to give the conference visitors a chance to test the game in a specifically tailored route close to the conference site. After conducting the pilot we plan to organize a short review regarding the user experience.
