Time-wARpXplorer: creating a playful experience in an urban time warp

In the paper, we present a novel pervasive mobile game named Time-wARpXplorer (TARX) that comprises of a mobile client and an online authoring tool. The game was created to encourage visitors and locals to explore the city of Lancaster by travelling back in time and space to discover their immediate and distant surroundings. In particular, TARX combines exploration of past and present day by allowing players to warp back in time based on the players physical location. This time travel is linked to present day through the implementation of Foursquare’s checkin platform to further raise awareness of historic sites. The paper focuses on the design considerations and implementation of the novel mobile client (Time-wARpMachine) and the requirement these place on the online authoring tool (Xplorer Authoring Tool).

  • “When a body of mass and volume moves with a velocity, then
    many changes take place in is physical appearance. When the
    body reaches the speed of light mass becomes infinite and time
    factor disappears. In liegeman’s terms, no time passes covering
    millions of light years in no time as the time for movement has
    disappeared. It is in this phase when the body is said to be moving
    in a time-warp speed”.
