Projection-Mapped Games Environments

Studio Maguire, Back To Ours and the University of Hull

Studio McGuire’s renowned projection mapped art and installations have been exhibited, sold, published and screened internationally and their critically acclaimed theatrical projects have been invited to tour to more than 60 different countries over 4 continents.

Working in partnership with the University of Hull and Back to Ours, they will collaborate to create a dedicated toolkit that interfaces games engines and created narratives with projection mapping software. Real-life objects will become giant obstacles for miniature characters to contend with as players navigate their way through mixed reality gaming worlds.

The project is a starting point to explore, develop and investigate the capabilities and implications of giving audiences greater agency as active participants; controlling characters and environments within their stories.
