We’re happy to announce our latest mixed-reality game app «Basler StadtNatour», an interactive guide and companion app through the nature of Basel city.
For the Stadtgärtnerei (Department of Parks and Recreation) of the city of Basel, we created the «Basler StadtNatour» app that invites users to explore the breath-taking flora and fauna of Basel’s nature. The digital character Jonathan guides you with extensive audio dialogs from the Pfalz over the Rhine river to the Lange Erlen animal park.
On the journey, the interested public can investigate on site for real and get further facts from the app’s fact collection to solve a fun and informative quiz. Interactive elements include 360° panorama photos of the stations, an interactive simulator on how to build a wooden hotel for bees and a biodiversity counter to keep track on the number of species inhabiting the riverbank at Basel’s Rhine.
The app was available for Android on Google Play and for iOS on Apple’s App Store for 7 years between 2016 and 2022.
