Project Description

SOLAR: Walk Sheffield

A New Art Walking App For Sheffield

Overview

SOLAR is a new art walking app for Sheffield. Funded by Sheffield Hallam’s Catalyst Fund and produced by the Walking Arts Research Group, Epiphany VR and Opus Independents.

The SOLAR app consists of 8 original pieces of artwork inspired by the planets designed by award winning artists from Sheffield Hallam University. The Solar system has been scaled down to span the distance from the city centre out into the Peak District but the ratios of distances between the planets have stayed the same and are designed so that the average walking speed is close to the Speed Of Light. The app uses your phones GPS coordinates to unlock each piece of artwork as you pass each planet.

Deliverables

We were tasked with creating the app from the ground up which involved:

  • Meetings/discussions with client

  • Proof of concept

  • Wireframes

  • UI Desgin

  • Programming & game mechanics

  • Protoyping

  • Marketing material

  • Release on both Android and IOS

Results

By harnessing the power of the Unity games engine we were able to deliver this app in a very short space of time for our client. We are very pleased to have our first app up and running on both Android and IOS and are looking forwards to making many more!
