Project Overworld is an interactive GPS enabled map of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute campus, which is accessible through mobile devices. The project aims to act as a guidance system for freshmen and to provide connectivity between WPI students. The application features a avatar creation and customization system, similar to fantasy role-playing type games. By exploring various locations of campus and answering trivia questions, players can level up and further customize their avatar. This paper documents the design process behind the application.
