Borrowed Scenery tendrils reach out

Posted by Dave Griffiths on Wed 8th Aug 2012

Some serious connecting work going on with borrowed scenery for joining physical and imaginary worlds together. A new Boskoi database is up and running, giving us a place to put all kinds of story elements and plants found in the city. Boskoi uses the Ushahidi platform, which provides an API the game is now using to pull all items tagged in the map (which can come from the Android app or web app) into the game where they can interact with players or other entities.

More of Theun's artwork has gone in, including a magician tarot avatar on the left while the three plants in the screenshot above represent those tagged on the map below. Getting everything in the right place (map lat/long coordinates vs game location coordinates and then aligning the map) took a lot of time to get right!
