A game for iConference? – What is it about? – How do I play it?
By now you will have downloaded the Aurasma app to your iPhone or Android device enabling you to play the Now and Then game. This game will let you find hidden artifacts in the environment and thereby let you experience Fort Worth from the past and informally learn about the people that helped shape the city.
There are four paths of the game:
1. Inside the hotel which is your training path
2. On the Sundance Square
3. In the Fort Worth Stockyards
4. In the Cultural District
Play the game by Thursday 11:00 am to win! Follow the clues given by each artifact you find. Enjoy and have fun!
