The web-based augmented reality game, launched on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the Belvedere Museum, takes children and families on a thrilling adventure through the Baroque palace gardens. The grounds of the Belvedere were once home to a menagerie – one of Europe's earliest zoos - where Prince Eugene gathered animals from around the world. Six of these animals are now the protagonists of the new Fantastic Palastics game: Roco the Lion, Neo the Lemur, Rena the Gazelle, Pop the Sheep, Dada the Ostrich, and Flux the Porcupine. The Fantastic Palastics game brings the history of this World Heritage Site to life with AR technology by Niantic 8th Wall. The game was developed in collaboration with The Brand Father and Orb Amsterdam and powered by Niantic 8th Wall. Wolfgang Bergmann (CFO Belvedere) and Doruk Eker (Orb) will talk about the development and learnings of this innovative project.
