Pathways is a game with animated AR surrounding and VR elements which takes the player on a journey across our continent. More Europe is (almost) impossible!
Pathways takes players on an incredible journey across the continent. Wonderful pictures, diverse characters and exciting adventures combine European themes with very personal insights into the world of European citizens.
In collaboration with Germany’s Foreign Office, the ADC has developed a virtual reality game for download in the form of an app. The game is an innovative and entertaining way to highlight Europe’s strengths: diversity, peace and cohesion.
The concept – a virtual journey
A single currency, free movement and free trade: for many, Europe is a world without borders. But some people still question the European idea. To overcome the walls in their heads, „Pathways“ is relying on a groundbreaking concept: players step out of the analogue world onto a virtual paper map. From here, they can get an overview of the continent and become involved in various storylines. They follow the characters Lucas, Andreas, Frieda, Magdalena and Yanko, accompanying them on a journey across the continent and experiencing the hitherto abstract everyday lives of different Europeans within their own four walls.
They encounter important European topics such as freedom of travel and the Erasmus programme, experience the continent’s turbulent history, and learn about many aspects of its geography, society, culture and politics from completely new perspectives. A European adventure!
The implementation – an animated augmented reality environment and XR technology
Zdrasti, Hola, Salut and Ciao – over the one-year duration of the project, the ADC developed a serious game, which leads players on a gripping, virtual tour of Europe through a combination of gaming elements, digital learning and emotional discovery. Right from the start, the basic idea was to convey the essence of Europe in an easy and innovative way: diversity without borders.
And how does it work exactly?
In addition to the latest XR technology and intuitive controls via the smartphone camera, thanks to the professionally designed, animated augmented reality environment the free-to-play app becomes a truly immersive gaming experience. You couldn’t fit (much) more Europe inside it.
