Abstract

Time Tremors is a transmedia experience for children aged 8-14 that crosses television, web, locative media, and mobile apps. Time Tremors is a collection game in which players search for objects from history supposedly scattered throughout time and space, hidden, invisible to the human eye but detectable and collectable using a variety of mobile and online broadband technologies. Extending the game into locative augmented reality and mobile play was an applied research challenge that required narrative continuity while ensuring safe play.
