The Gauntlet is a pervasive game for creating and sharing location-based, user generated, challenges within social networks. Players can create and share challenges online, and complete them in real-life settings individually or collaboratively.
The Gauntlet aims to encourage players to participate in activities and challenges in their community. These challenges (all user generated) span various themes and have an underlying focus of improving communities (from neighborhood citizenship to environmental sustainable practices), while making real-world settings more interesting.
The Gauntlet is a research project created and developed by Maoyang Li, Daniel Hawkins, Clarissa Ishak and Dr. Carman Neustaedter at the Connections Lab at Simon Fraser University, Canada. Recently the project has been accepted to the CHI 2015 Works-in-Progress venue.
