SCOPE OF PROJECT
TREASURE IS AN AUGMENTED REALITY PUZZLE HUNT GAME
Its purpose is to foster human connection among friends and family through collaboration and play. Friends or family form teams, then wander and search for clues to solve puzzles in the real world. Each clue requires teamwork and collaboration to unlock the next phase.
This project was developed over a period of 7 weeks. The area of focus for the project was around behavioral change and the implementation of gamification elements to foster human connection through collaboration. Our target users for this project are smarthphone users who spend time socially with friends and family. Our goal is to provide an application that encourages and promotes human connection by engaging in collaborative games with friends and family.
