Overview

Wasteworld is a free Augmented Reality (AR) game designed and developed by Apptension. It teaches children aged 7+ about waste sorting in a playful and engaging way. Augmented reality technology makes it possible to place the gameplay in users’ rooms, sparking young players' curiosity with an immersive experience.

The challenge: Build an AR game that’s engaging for young audiences in 6 weeks

When we thought of building an educational, recycling-focused app for children, an AR game was the natural first choice. Young users enjoy mobile content, plus augmented reality would enable us to create an immersive and fun experience. Apptension’s R&D team took up the challenge of building Wasteworld within a short timeframe (6 weeks) using our own tool for augmented reality apps: App Scaffold.

“Apptension was flexible and professional. When I needed to quickly add capacity, it took a week or two at worst - often days. The cooperation enabled me to slowly scale up my own IT team, and the company was very helpful until the last moments of the transition.”
