Short Description

Ko’Ko’s Curse is an Augmented Reality interactive story. This unique fairy tale teaches kids about environment, featuring iconic actor and activist Peter Coyote as the narrator.

Long Description

Ko’Ko, the Burrowing Owl, commonly named the ‘Watcher of the Dark’, protects the underworld, the seeds and the plants. One day, a feather from Ko’Ko’s plumage was stolen. He was turned into a statue and the plants stopped growing. The user has to find the feather and place it back onto the statue before the last branch dies in the ancient forest. In this interactive story narrated by iconic actor and activist Peter Coyote, the Augmented Reality environment reacts to the physical presence of the player. The frontier between virtual and real world is almost indistinguishable.
