Xploro

Think ‘Where’s Wally’ meets ‘Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?’

Xploro is an educational history game for iOS, which brings together mobile AR technology and spatial multiplayer game-play mechanics.

Designed for children aged 8-12, Xploro was created to fill what was seen as a gap in Australian primary school education by broadening students global historical knowledge in a fun and playful way. Within the game users can travel through portals to historically significant eras and interact with key artefacts. 

The experience is a showcase of high visual quality to a standard expected of students trained in CG animation for film, as well as using emerging real-time technology in a unique and innovative way. In collaboration with The British Museum, Xploro also uses photogrammetry of real life artefacts as a key educational components that the users unlock and study alongside educational content that is filtered and rewritten for primary school children.
