Fair Worlds Launches SPACE-TIME ADVENTURE TOURS Immersive AR Experience in Seattle




Mobile app promises a real world adventure through the Seattle Center with a unique blend of history, comedy & AR.

SEATTLE, June 8, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Fair Worlds announces the launch of SPACE-TIME ADVENTURE TOURS, a new type of immersive narrative experience for fans of travel, history and augmented reality.

Available now on the Apple App Store, the free, AR-enabled app guides players on immersive tours through the past, present, and future of famous locations. Each tour will include a curated mix of archival content alongside an interactive story and time-bending AR gameplay.

The first release features a flagship tour through the present day Seattle Center in Seattle, Washington, with a spotlight on the 1962 Century 21 Expo––the first “Space Age” World’s Fair. This thirty minute experience transports locals and tourists alike on a trip through the thrilling sights and sounds of mid-century Seattle. The tour takes a sharp turn, however, after a pair of desperate physicists who are running out of time (literally) enlist the player’s help.

Once a player arrives at the start of the tour, located at the Seattle Center Monorail Station, their mobile device transforms into an official SPACE-TIME ADVENTURE TOURS “Walkie-Talkie Time Machine™.” This Space Age interface uses GPS to guide players on a multi-stop tour showcasing the main attractions located at the Seattle Center…with only a few additional and unexpected stops along the way.

Additional tours and location-based features are planned for future releases.

“We’re proud to bring immersive, location-based AR experiences to the Seattle Center with Space-Time Adventure Tours,” says Erik Horn, Co-Founder & CCO of Fair Worlds, “and we’re looking forward to publishing more immersive narratives in other historical locations soon.”

AR gameplay and other features are powered by Niantic Lightship (Pokémon Go) which enable the localization and rendering of virtual objects with believable depth and occlusion.

“Fair Worlds is taking an innovative approach to spatial content development and publishing,” says Joe Gabriel, Developer Relations Lead at Niantic, “and Space-Time Adventure Tours brings creative and compelling storytelling using the Niantic Lightship platform. Fair Worlds is an exciting developer to watch.”

Key art was created by Seattle-based design shop INVISIBLE CREATURE. In-game characters were designed by visual artist Matte Stephens.
