Resonant: Exploring Cultural Heritage through Game-based Virtual Reality

Development of a prototype of a virtual reality game exploring the ancient Native American site Mesa Verde, using existing archival three-dimensional scans.

CyArk is seeking to develop a prototype virtual reality game built on top of extensive archival 3D scans of Mesa Verde. The game, Resonant, will explore core humanities topics including connections among place, culture, and language through historical, archaeological, and cultural perspectives. Resonant will transform how cultural sites are approached and contextualized in virtual media. As learner-players unlock sections of the game, they engage in a number core humanities topics relating to place and history, as well Native American traditions and pathways and their stories today.
