This project is a mobile app prototype that provides a suite of fast-paced and fun hypercasual gaming experiences played within augmented reality. Interstitial PSA informational cards will appear to reinforce breast cancer awareness, prompt reminders for screenings, fundraise breast cancer research through In-App purchases and promote any upcoming local charity events. We challenged ourselves to see how many unique game mechanics we could develop using the eponymous Pink Ribbon.
Pink Ribbon The internationally recognized brand for Breast Cancer awareness is used for activities to promote fundraising, goodwill and support for breast cancer survivors. There is a lack of presence in the mobile games economy.
