Storienteer

World Makers sought. No previous experience required.

What it does

Storienteer is a powerful way to create and share mixed reality content. We want to see the world layered with adventure and magic, and we’re providing a platform where you can do just that.

Augmented reality

Place virtual objects in the real world, on any recent smartphone. No goggles needed.

Location-based

Use geolocation and other map-based data, like terrain type and proximity.

3D models

Embed animated 3D models as virtual characters and props that players can interact with.

Connected devices

Connect with beacons, web services, and IoT devices to blur the bounds of reality.

Storienteer gives you the power to create mixed reality content for the iOS and Android devices that people already have in their hands.
