Location-sensitive mobile games

Our group has designed and developed a number of location-sensitive mobile games

MuseumScrabble is a location-sensitive mobile game, designed and developed for a museum in Greece. The game is aimed for visiting pupils. Teams of players use PDAs to scan and link exhibits in the rooms of the museum. The game is loosely based on the adaption of the Scrabble board game in a location-based form. For more information, check the minisite.
