  • Goal:

Introduce players to characters

(animals that live in this ecosystem)

Educate about characters environment

  • 1) Just like when you get bigger and need new close I do too. Some animals call this shedding I call this molting. See if you can find my old shell along the beach. If you do count my legs. How many of them do I have?

  • 2) My tail is also special. I use it to help me move through the water like a rudder on a boat. It also helps me if I get flipped over. Move my tail back and forth to help me move through the water.

  • 3)If you see me alive handle me with care. If you find my shell look for my 2 compound eyes. I don’t see like you do. I see shadows, light and dark spots, that tell me where things are.

  • You have successfully completed all your tasks

  • Thank you for being a friend and helping me. You have been very kind and respectful.

  • Original thoughts were to use QR codes to develop the game
  • Using an App allows for more options and creates a more layered and multi linear game
  • A good game should allow for the player to be challenged by options and activities
  • The reward or prize should be developed in the format of goal achievement. In our case this is helping the gull to be set free

  • Participant experience

Using smart phone technology the player must enter the museum building to download app
