Explore the real world while you travel through Jewish History.
With Remembrance, every real world step the player takes unlocks an immersive, historically-based story and an interaction with Jewish history never before seen on smartphones. The unique design of the Remembrance app integrates storytelling with a mixed-reality experience complete with animated 3D characters, professional quality voice over and user choices that change the outcome of the experience.
Season One: The Notebook
“Remembrance” will be an app for iPhone and Android that will engage the user as an active participant throughout different time periods and “stories” in Jewish history. The Remembrance app will introduce these stories as “Seasons” with “Episodes”, similar to a TV show. The first Season is called: “The Notebook”. Based on the real-life experiences of those who lived through the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, an interactive notebook will come to life on the user’s smartphone. The people from the time will stand before the user by way of the app’s 3D character system, as users will interact with them in ways never before realized.
“As with all Seasons, ‘The Notebook’ will be more than a simple documentary-style guide through the Warsaw Ghetto”, noted Aharon Cagle – founder and CEO of Loreful. “Remember, you are an active participant. We’ll take collective experiences from real accounts and place you in the middle of that authentic experience. You will pass information and smuggle items between the outside world and the ghetto. You will speak and react with the key figures of the time and place. It’s the kind of experiential learning that only augmented and mixed reality can offer. Because of this, we are incredibly excited about what this means for the future.”
AN AUTHENTIC WALK THROUGH HISTORY
From the fully voiced dialogue scenes to the back-stories of the characters, every aspect of Remembrance is painstakingly researched and authentic to history.
WALK, RUN or HIKE…ANYWHERE
Remembrance works in the real world. To unlock the story…just walk. It even works on a treadmill.
