Outdoor multiplayer AR game based on a ritual
With the help of augmented reality, Mir-e-Nowruzi will be an outdoor multiplayer game. The game leader runs the game and gives roles to other participants as ministers. They build an AR world based on the king/queen commands.
This project has roots in a Persian ceremony called Mir-e-Nowruzi. The carnivalesque ritual of electing a commoner to rule for one to five days over the country.
