ARia’s Legacy is the first mobile escape room game using AR (augmented reality) technology. Instead of displaying objects on a table in front of you, it creates a virtual environment around your physical space that has you walking around your room discovering parts that were never there before. Through the power of AR, players can immerse themselves in 50 different levels of mystery anywhere using a mobile phone or tablet as they uncover the story behind ARia’s sudden disappearance and discover her legacy.

You are part of a team of archaeologists excitedly looking for artifacts at your newest archaeological site. Suddenly, your shovel strikes a chest that you quickly unearth with the help of various tools around you. But when you try to open it, you are seemingly thrown into a locked room that is at once familiar and eerily foreign to you.
Your only clue seems to be the chest that you found and the name “ARia" ringing in your head.
ARia’s Legacy was conceived from a successful escape room run with friends. From there, it seemed obvious that the next step for the popular mystery/puzzle trend would be to implement a version of it through augmented reality so that escape room addicts like ourselves can have the escape room experience whenever and wherever they want.
Thanks to Unity and ARKit, The Pixel Crushers were able to quickly create a demo to bring the concept to life. This prototype was first showcased at EGLX, Canada’s largest gaming expo, where curious gamers were instantly hooked on the mystery of where ARia has disappeared to… Will you be able to find her?
