The Bird Nest was a pilot Live Augmented Gaming Experience. The player uncovers the truth behind a retrofuturistic bunker controlled by a central AI called The Mother Bird. The game incorporated real life roleplaying structure with immersive Augmented Reality technology.
The game was played in a real-life set build at Mediapolis, Tampere, in collaboration with YLE, TAMK, Microsoft, Tredu, Apex Games, Odios and Smartrac.
