This project advocates the combination of Greek cultural heritage, digital technologies advancements and the implementation of escape games innovative gamifying practices .
A digital escape game infrastructure for mobile devices and computers will be developed, with the use of Augmented Reality. Using Greek literary texts and their English translations, the project will support the creation of escape games available for indoor or outdoor use. The literary texts’ content will relate to specific elements of the Greek cultural heritage, depicted by prominent Greek writers. The majority of the literary texts will originate from Greek educational content available in digital libraries and depositories developed and maintained by CTI.
The project novelty and originality lies in the combination of augmented reality and the projection of sites of major cultural significance, as well as the gamified suggestions for literary text exploitation.
