  1. Hi! This looks like a fantastic opportunity. However it appears that the app Aurasma has been discontinued. Is there another app that we can use for the tour?

    1. Hi Rhiannon,

      Sorry, buy the Call of Lovecraft experience hasn’t been updated for newer AR apps. The project was mostly discontinued after initial funding was exhausted.
