Abstract

This [sic] idea behind this project was to create an entertaining game that could help prospective students to learn about the campus of WPI. We developed a first person perspective virtual tour based on pictures of the WPI campus. To evaluate the usefulness of the game, a user study was conducted. The user study showed us that the tour aspect of the game informed people of spatial relations of buildings on campus and the paths that connect them.
