Google Android + ARCore
Tendar is a humorous, provocative, and intimate two-player AR experience that cleverly examines our relationship with technology. In Tendar, players teach a virtual guppy to live in the real world by “feeding” it through a well balanced diet of emotions. The guppy will learn, evolve, and analyze the world around it based on players’ facial expressions and level of cooperation. This experience explores greater themes of sociology and tech through interactive storytelling and cutting edge ARCore features, making for a uniquely affecting AR adventure.
Tendar was previewed in early 2018 at Sundance, GDC, and E3, and will launch in Summer 2018. Our goal was to apply long form interactive storytelling to the emerging field of augmented reality, with a compelling narrative in the palm of your hand and an experience that can be shared with friends.
