  • Player 1, are you ready to be in your own video game? Coming this summer at NuVu Studio you’ll be able to do just that. Using the power of Augmented Reality (AR) you will be able to design and play in your own Augmented Reality Game. Augmented Reality games like Pokémon Go are similar to Virtual Reality, but instead of placing you in a 100% virtual world, AR shows the real world mixed with virtual elements. You’ll use Unity3D, a popular cross-platform game engine for video game development and interactive media installations, to build augmented games populated by virtual challenges that place YOU in the heart of the action.

    In this studio, you’ll learn how to program, create 3D models, and, above all, explore the design implications of AR, the newest form of media and entertainment. Send the main character (that’s you!) on an interactive virtual quest through a supermarket suddenly overgrown with virtual man-eating plants; design whimsical fantasy worlds that emerge inside your bedroom; create a sci-fi story based on a world similar to Mars but taking place right here on Earth! Alongside the game design, students will conceptualize a strong narrative for the game and flex their digital art skills creating the graphics. After coming up with an initial idea, students will conceive the rules and structure of the game (gameplay), and build these into their game environment. Finally, we will move to the production phase and bring all the elements together to launch your Augmented Reality game!

  • The first picture is our intention or summary of the game. The second is our precedent (inspiration), Fez, a video game. In Fez, you have to get the character through the obstacle course and reach the end. Every time your character get  into a new angle, you have to spin the tower so that you can see your character. The next three pictures are our paper prototype. We created an obstacle course on paper and tested it out. We used paper assets and paper phone screens. The next few photos are our assets. We created these characters using MagicaVoxel, a pixel-themed model designer. The last picture is our finished game.
