ANTROPOSEENI – Mixed Reality Game

Started 31.10.2014

Ended 31.12.2014

Antroposeeni is a reality bending adventure game in the city surrounding us. This new mobile experience takes you on a journey to the secrets of the Other Helsinki.

Keiko Kinosita is a member of the ancient Japanese order of story collectors. She travels the world collecting stories for an unknown client. But not just any stories; she collects strange stories, scary stories, stories of ghosts, possessions and other strange incidents. She’s also searching for something else: Keiko is wanderer driven by a mysterious quest from beyond time and space.

New Dimension of Gaming

The city around us is alive with memories of past lives. These moments live all around us as whispers in the empty street, strange reflections in the shop window, and eerie echoes in the hallways. Antroposeeni is a game that turns memories into reality and allows players to experience them as sounds and images and videos, pieces of the secret story of the city. Dynamic soundscape and augmented reality technology will allow the urban legends, ghost stories and historical events to become real at their actual location in the city.

Antroposeeni creates a thrilling game world by taking full advantage of the technical features of modern smart phone. The easiest way to grasp the concept is to experience it yourself. It only takes a minute:

1. Download the FREE Arilyn application to your device from Google Play or AppStore
AppStore 
Google Play 
2. Open the app in your device
3. Use your device to look at the image below (as if you were taking a picture)
4. Wow!

Imagine what you just saw happening everywhere in the city. Any surface, space or location in the city can contain a small story or parts of a larger one. Antroposeeni is a mobile game like you’ve never seen before.

Story collector Keiko Kinosita arrived in Helsinki at the height of the summer in 2014. She immediately fell in love with the magical summer nights and the rich story tradition of Finland. She was so charmed, that she decided to extend her stay. She spent the summer and autumn collecting stories and making new friends in Helsinki. She came here looking for something, but what exactly was it?

What Makes Antroposeeni Unique?

Sense of Wonder:
Augmented Reality technique is at the brink of breakthrough. We’re very excited about the possibilities offered by this new evolved media. With the new software technology, we can create amazingly lifelike illusions and visions of ghosts, other realities and other times. Anything like this has not been possible before, because the technology has not been evolved enough. Like Arthur C. Clarke once said: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”. We want you to experience this new miracle and all its wonders.

Truly Local Game:
With local we truly mean local: not just familiar names and settings or backgrounds. Antroposeeni is geographically set to specific coordinates, but, more importantly, we also use content that is deeply rooted in the city. Every corner, building, walkway and park bench in the city has its own history, own stories and events linked to the places and people of the city. Antroposeeni turns these stories into something you can see, hear and experience at the actual location; at the corner where the event happened. We start the journey from Helsinki and tell stories that can only be told in Helsinki because they actually happened in Helsinki.

Games and Storytelling:
Often games reward you for repetitive action, for doing something over and over again or for becoming faster, stronger and more accurate. Antroposeeni is a game about stories and storytelling, intuition and emotion. You don’t always need a map to find your way around the city: maybe you find your way in the maze of stories by following a particularly romantic tune.

High Artistic and Technical Production Values:
Antroposeeni stories will be seen and heard as live action video and audio. By not using animated characters, we want to avoid the alienating Uncanny Valley -effect that is typical to computer animations. This way the illusion of other realities is much more real and believable. We will take you on a journey into a rich and detailed fantasy world, where different dimensions, time travel and spirits are all real.

One day in late autumn, Keiko checks out from her hotel in order to continue her journey. She never checks in to her flight. She has disappeared, but strangely enough, in Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, she keeps on posting from Helsinki as if nothing happened. You have to solve the mystery of Keiko and combine your own collection of weird stories. Follow the footsteps of Keiko, see the city through her eyes and learn the secrets of Helsinki: the ghosts, the crimes, the urban legends, the forgotten corners of knowledge.

Why Should You Fund Us?

Support the research and development of a new art form
Augmented Reality applications are still relatively rare, but soon AR content will be everywhere. Surely you want to be able to tell everyone, that you were one of the visionaries, who supported the first mixed reality game in Finland?

See the city like you’ve never seen it before
The further Antroposeeni proceeds, the more real it becomes. The game is digital, but as you proceed, realities and media spheres collide and fantasy may become real at any time. Surprise rendezvous, mysterious performances, closed special events and items hidden in the city are all part of the Antroposeeni experience.

Become a member of the inner circle of Antroposeeni
Support our crowd funding campaign and you can download the Antroposeeni application (for Android and iOS) in early 2015 – way ahead of the others! With the application, you become part of the developer and user community and get to witness the production of Antroposeeni from your own ring-side seat – even participate to it! You get to see special content aimed only for the chosen few and participate to the special Antroposeeni events.

How Is The Money Spent?

Until now, Antroposeeni has been developed simultaneously with other projects. Your monetary help will allow the team to fully concentrate in the making of Antroposeeni on the spring of 2015. We are going to build a rich and exciting fantasy world full of details for the players to experience. Funds will be spent on team salaries and other production costs (such as programming, filming and recording as well as manufacturing the artefacts).

Successful campaign should allow us to release a version based on downtown Helsinki at the spring of 2015. The more funding we get, the better, bigger and more detailed world we can build for you. Our long term goal is to expand Antroposeeni to new areas in Helsinki and eventually to other cities as well. We ask your help in making it happen!

You can also follow her on Twitter
