Exploring the web as a platform for pervasive games

Pervasive games use reality as the game board. Players interact face-to-face in real locations according to a virtual layer of rules and narrative, commonly provided by an interactive, networked multimedia system. This project involved developing one of these systems, using the World Wide Web as a base. The ubiquity of internet access, especially on mobile devices, means a web-based approach has the potential to connect huge numbers of players from around the world, inexpensively, in real-time; a massively multiplayer portable experience.
