Shrine is a prototype that encourages collectors of hockey memorbilia to digitize and share their collections. Players create digital trophy rooms that can be explored and shared.
Shrine is a serious game aimed at collectors of hockey memorabilia to encourage them to digitize and share their collections. It allows collectors to build trophy rooms much as they do in real life -- without limiting them they way they are in real life (e.g., space, money). Collectors can create custom rooms using 3D scans and customizable photo frames. Audio and video content can be added in the form of radios and TVs.
Collecting And Sharing
The system focuses on supporting narrative, and while it may not be a true game, it uses a gameful experience to motivate users. The design of the system was informed by interviews with expert collectors who had more than 500 items and 10 years of experience
