Between play and storytelling, an augmented reading experience

  • ABSTRACT

    This paper presents an attempt to combine gaming and reading. We want to achieve an expansion of a story-world by transmitting the sensual, emotional and cognitive expression of the book into a tablet game. The paper presents a prototype implementation of an augmented reading experience for children in which a physical copy of the book ”The Little Prince” is tagged with QR codes. When scanning these codes using an iPad 2, a series of mini-games, that relate to the corresponding narrative in the book, can be played

    The main focus of the paper is to reflect upon our transmission of the story-world of the book into a series of tablet mini-games, and how the game interactions reflect back on the users perception of the story.

    Keywords
    Transmedial worlds, tablet, game, interaction design.
