“The Fantastic Palastics” – AR Mobile Game by the Belvedere Museum

Oct 24

10:05 - 10:30

Description

The web-based augmented reality game, launched on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the Belvedere Museum, takes children and families on a thrilling adventure through the Baroque palace gardens. The grounds of the Belvedere were once home to a menagerie – one of Europe's earliest zoos - where Prince Eugene gathered animals from around the world. Six of these animals are now the protagonists of the new Fantastic Palastics game: Roco the Lion, Neo the Lemur, Rena the Gazelle, Pop the Sheep, Dada the Ostrich, and Flux the Porcupine. The Fantastic Palastics game brings the history of this World Heritage Site to life with AR technology by Niantic 8th Wall. The game was developed in collaboration with The Brand Father and Orb Amsterdam and powered by Niantic 8th Wall. Wolfgang Bergmann (CFO Belvedere) and Doruk Eker (Orb) will talk about the development and learnings of this innovative project.

Come to the Belvedere Gardens and play the game while you are in Vienna: www.belvedere.at/game

As an Interactive Emmy-winning Narrative Director, I’ve spent 25 years creating groundbreaking stories for film, TV, video games, VR, AR and immersive theater. With this talk, I will offer AWE's audience of XR professionals key techniques from both video games and experiential theater that we’ll need to build the future of storytelling in extended realities.

Drawing links between classic video games (like GTA, Portal, Last of Us, Destiny, Fortnite) and immersive theater groups, both historical and contemporary, (Punchdrunk, The Living Theater, Odyssey Works, Third Rail Projects, La Fura del Baus), this talk will examine how both mediums leverage player agency and create living worlds. Attendees interested in experiential storytelling will come away with knowledge about tools like emergent narrative, environmental storytelling, sandbox game design, and a responsive world. I’ll discuss the importance of state change tracking, best practices for balancing player choice when using branching story techniques, and the role of AI in the future of story.​​

With the launch of the Vision Pro, we are seeing significant industry momentum in XR and the metaverse. However, as my colleagues often say: “The metaverse is a technology in search of a reason for being.” As such, this talk will provide tangible insights on how to drive human-focused experiences, and provide essential ideas to creators looking to craft XR worlds that go beyond passive consumption into the realm of “story living.”
