AR Façade is an augmented reality version of the acclaimed desktop-based interactive drama, Façade.

In AR Façade players move through a physical apartment and use gestures and speech to interact with two autonomous characters, Trip and Grace. Our experience converting a desktop based game to augmented reality sheds light on the design challenges of developing mixed physical/virtual AI-based drama and serves as a research instrument to emperically study the relationship between presence and engagement.
