This augmented-reality game was a concept proposal to help drive traffic to the public libraries of Chicago, as well as the various landmarks within the city. The basic concept is
that “hot spots” appear on the smart-phone’s mapping app, with relevant missions tied to classic literary characters Huck Finn on the Chicago River, Captain Nemo
on the lakeshore, etc.Through participation, players are then driven to reserve
the related book at a local library for points which can be cashed-in for badges, local deals, and more.
