Come join us in the Town Center of WID for 3 days of ARIS design!*

ARIS design Jam image

No experience needed (but we encourage you to play with it ahead of time!) — we will have “how-to” components for those who are new to ARIS or need help designing their first ARIS game. We will also run a series of design challenges that will allow you to experiment with the basic features of the ARIS-platform.

We’ll set up a fun, low-pressure atmosphere for you to focus on creating different aspects of an ARIS game. Would you like your game to contain mini games that include Data Collection? Trading? Running? “Battle”? Photography? Crafting?

Want to include QR codes? Gyroscope-controlled Panoramic images?

Or maybe you just want to improve your skills in creating dialogs, conversations, quests and requirements?

Bring your ideas and ARIS projects for 3 days of focused exploration. The current rough itinerary is in the table below:
