Virtual Tartanya

Virtual Tartanya took users 250 years into the past and tasked them with surviving in the local area, modern day Adelaide. The character starts off with being tasked in gathering firewood to feed the sacred fire, from there the elder tasks the player with talking to the people of the group to learn how to survive. The player learns how to craft the traditional hunting spears to hunt kangaroos and wallabies that migrate throughout the area. The map was faithfully recreated through the Virtual Songlines system taking topographical data, both height map and soil map data, to be able to recreate the area as faithfully as possible as it would have looked prior to colonisation.
