AR tourist Storyquest
Gazooky Studios were funded by the UK Foreign Officeand DIT as part of FCDO’s Smart Cities campaign, to create an AR storyquest tourist tool for Turkish city, Bursa. Gazooky worked closely with PwC Turkey, who acted for Gazooky as our mediators on the ground.
It’s a new type of tourist tool: an AR storyquest app, leading visitors around the Old Town of Bursa, using the power of story. Users can discover and collect beautiful 3D objects of heritage, learning about the cultural story of Bursa, before popping into the bazaar to take a cup of Turkish coffee.
And it’s multi-lingual – Gazooky Studios developers programmed the app to be available in three languages: Turkish, English and Arabic – with three different UI interfaces.
“We are really pleased with where this project has reached, especially given the timeframes. The app is slick, functional, good-looking, and the Bursa MM team looked very pleased. Thank you to Gazooky Studios, and your teams, for the immense hard work – we are hugely impressed.”
