Chromaroma: multiplayer pervasive game built on the Oyster Card

Chromaroma Visualisations from Mudlark on Vimeo.

Chromaroma is a game that shows you your movements and location as you swipe your Oyster Card in and out of the Tube.

It connects communities of people who cross paths and routes on a regular basis, and encourages people to make new journeys and use public transport in a different way by exploring new areas and potentially using different modes of public transport.

Chromaroma is an online multiplayer game played out as you travel the city with your Oyster Card. By using Oyster data we are able to show you your Tube travel, and every journey means you amass points, taking a few steps further along the way to owning London.

Chromaroma is a type of location-based top-trumps. You collect places, identities, modes of transport and passengers as you travel around the city; discover and investigate mysteries attached to different locations and build alliances with fellow passengers that share your journeys. It’s a game you can play on your own, or part of a team.

The game will launch late in 2010. You can sign up for the private beta here
