Abstract

Cultural heritage sites, with their diverse architectural spaces,

offer visitors unique opportunities to engage with their environmental

and structural features. This paper presents the initial phase of a broader

research endeavor focused on conveying cultural and historical

information by integrating game elements within the context of cultural

heritage. The primary objective of this study is to design a

comprehensive route for the Yedikule Fortress, highlighting its key

attractions while emphasizing its cultural and historical significance.

During the design phase, we began by compiling and evaluating data

concerning visitors' activities and points of interest within the social

media and the physical space of the site. We then integrated this

information with historical data, establishing connections between

prominent events and specific locations. This paper will discuss the

issues to be considered and the method to design a route of game-based

MR experience in cultural heritage areas. This paper will discuss the

critical considerations and methodology employed to create a route for

a game-based Mixed-Reality (MR) experience in cultural heritage

areas.
