Modesto 2034: COMMUNITY
This video is based upon a real location based choose-your-adventure style alternate reality game set in the year 2034. During gameplay, our player reflects upon the nature of community and personal relationships, while uncovering clues located throughout downtown Modesto, California. Each clue reveals the next section of the story, told through video, animations, phone messages, and event pamphlets.
Participants earn virtual rewards through location specific challenges. These challenges center around Modesto’s quality of life issues that could be addressed in the near future, such as the creation of green spaces, support for locally owned businesses, and easier access to the transportation center in downtown.
The game play session was coordinated with the 2014 Modesto International Architecture festival. You can play the game here: Modesto 2034: Augmented Reality Game. *Project link will work on smartphones, or Chrome.
