Aotea Stories, an immersive location-based Augmented Reality game utilizing ARKit and ARCore, presents a groundbreaking and secure approach to urban gameplay, crafted by the expertise of Geo AR Games in geospatial gaming. Amid the rapid rise and transformation of cities, the profound heritage and history carried by old buildings often face disregard as they make way for newer, towering structures accommodating burgeoning offices and populations.
In this captivating experience, players have the chance to journey back to 1901 when Aotea Square boasted four majestic heritage buildings, now lost to the annals of time: The Auckland Market, The Bathhouse, The Hotel, and The Cobbler.
As Dr. Magnus, a trusted companion, calls upon the player to mend time anomalies, an enthralling quest unfolds. Physically walking alongside Dr. Magnus across the square, players interact with lifelike 3D characters stationed in front of each building, their mission being to retrieve lost or stolen pocket watches. The stakes are high; should the watches fail to return in time, the very fate of Auckland hangs in the balance, fostering a newfound sense of urgency and commitment to protect the remaining few heritage buildings. Journey through time, witness history's evolution, and take hold of the power to preserve cherished heritage in this riveting urban adventure.
