  • New box appears when a name is added
  • This function will allow the game to be played anywhere – At DI, we can check that we are in the right place using GPS coords
  • This function will allow the game to be played anywhere – At DI, we can check that we are in the right place using GPS coords
  • As you move, a rectangle changes colour representing where you are. When you press “Dig” a message appears showing how far you have dug down – 1 meter, 2 meters etc. You either find nothing or a fossil – can be randomised so different for each user
  • The fossils are dragged onto the graph to a position where the Y axis represents the depth found, and the X the time in millions of years when the fossil would be found. Some trial and error involved. At the end, you will be asked to indicate on the line, when you think dinosaurs lived = what depth you should look for them.
  • Note: Skelly-Telly does something that can’t yet be done – normally we would look for fossils on the edge of a cliff where different strata show different times in the history of the earth – the most recent layers at the top.
  • This is what it will look like when the game is being played. The top picture/map is erased as the layer below is revealed as the players move around
  • You have to make digging motions with the machine. For each dig you get a bucket. X buckets and you fill a barrow. Take the barrow to the specified place (marked on the map) to unload it. Animation shows a dinosaur styled like a JSB
  • Fanfare and the dinosaur comes to life
  • All the player interaction is stored in an “xml” file. This can be uploaded to the web and the players will have access to all their results – which players found which bits and when plus links to more research, and maybe coupons?
