AntVenture is an interactive storytelling audio walking app for your smartphone. As you walk through your neighbourhood, your route to work or around your yard, you experience a day-in-the-life of four different types of common ants, and about what they think of humans.

Along your route, you will determine the fate of these ants in classic “choose your own adventure” fashion.
At key points you will be asked to answer a SENSORY CARD question on your screen, a question about your direct surroundings that will allow the story will adapt to this sensory experience.

AntVenture utilizes your phone’s pedometer, meaning that to activate the stories you need to be walking. (However, to enhance accessibility, there is an AUTO-WALK mode to hear the stories without needing to walk.)

Anyone in the world can download the app and it is available on both Apple App Store and Google Play Store and the app does not collect any of your personal or location data.
