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 physically moving to another location in the real world.
This project needed two parts:
- A web-based editor to enable the authors to develop a branching story line with location-based features
- 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 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 choices, phone calls and similar elements.
