The H-EAR project is "augmented reality for the ears": Players listen to an interactive audio drama at the real-life locations where the story is taking place and decide what happens next by making choices, taking or rejecting telephone calls or moving to another location.

This project needed both an online editor so the authors can develop a branching story line with location-based features and an Android app where users can play those story lines. I was the only programmer on the project. Additionally, I advised the other team members on the design/concept of the app and the editor.

The editor was made in JavaScript/HTML5 and featured node-based editing of branching story lines which could be decided by location changes and several other user actions. Additionally multiple stories, episodes and characters needed to be supported. The system had to be web-based to allow access for multiple authors.

The Android app was made in Unity3D and played back branching story lines made by the editor. Apart from the playback functionality, it featured a cached/online map and several UI screens for multiple choice/phone calls/similar elements.
