Drains and Dragons

Drains & Dragons
Team Name: 
Drains and Dragons


A mobile augmented reality game using local government datasets to create a simple 'Dungeons and Dragons' hack and slash fest.  This is about raising awareness of bins as public assets.

Game Play

Connect to the game on your mobile device. As you walk around your area you will notice 'points of interest' appear on the map. Clicking on one of these will reveal the monster lurking at that point. What you do then is up to you (Fight, Flee or Find out more)


We've built this game using meteor, a full stack javascript development project that uses node, mongodb and the blaze UI. None of us knew anything about it before this week, so I wouldn't be looking here for any examples of clever code :-)

If you fork or download the code you'll need to feed your server side database. The easiest way is to use the mongorestore function (the dump is in the data/mongodb-backup directory).

Data Sets

To achieve this we have used GCC and HCC datasets relating to the locations of public assets.  These public assets form the basis for monsters which interact with players.

Datasets Used: 
HCC - Significant trees, Hobart Playgrounds, Litterbins, Urban Art, Public Toilets, Parks areas, GCC - Barbeques, Storm water pits, Public Art
