Directions for the Now and Then augmented reality game

Download the Aurasma app to your iPhone or Android device enabling you to play the Now and Then game. This game will let you find hidden artifacts in the environment and thereby let you experience Fort Worth from the past and informally learn about the people that helped shape the city.

There are four paths of the game:

1. Inside the hotel which is your training path

2. On the Sundance Square

3. In the Fort Worth Stockyards

4. In the Cultural District


How to set-up and use the Aurasma app to play:

You can make a free account with Aurasma by clicking the person icon to the very right at the bottom of the app (dark gray in the right image above). It is not required for playing the Now and Then game though. Click on the account tab and fill in the required information to set up the account. After this, follow the below steps:

1). Click on the looking glass at the bottom of the Aurasma app.

2). Type in Now and Then in the search field – Now and Then by Koan School will appear.

3). Click on the tiny arrow pointing right.

4). Make sure to click follow Now and Then.

5.) You are now ready to start looking for hidden artifacts in the environment. Click the cube at the bottom of the Aurasma window to get started.

Find your first clue by looking for the Texas Cafe sign or brown pony her in the hotel and place the viewfinder over it. Have fun!
