Immersive Experience Along Coastal Paths, where users can take part in a geolocated, interactive storyquest, harnessing the powers of mixed and augmented reality
Secret Coast is a prototype Mixed Reality Geolocated storyworld experience which leads you along coastal paths in a storyquest, through a story from our shared past.
Funded as an R&D project by CreativeXR, the locative experience delivers live action images, spatial audio, music and gameplay, to tell a story of smuggling, piracy and teenage angst. The storyworld is designed to be accessed by personal device, where users will be able to interact with talking AR characters who appear out of the walls, or half hidden in the sand of the beach. There are AR portals through which the user can travel into an eighteenth century tavern and an underwater treasure trove, where the clue to saving dying sea creatures might be found. The user can interact, make things happen, defeat the bad forces and triumph with the good. GPS-activated, this app is designed to provide 20 sequential locations along the hour-long walk, where the user can experience the next stage of the story.
The app is designed to connect people to the environment in which the scenes take place, to explore the coastline and our precious resource the sea.
