This cartridge will teach you how to use the Wherigo Player and give you an idea of what you can do with the platform.

About This Cartridge

Wherigo is a toolset for creating and playing location based adventures that combine virtual elements with the real world using a GPS device.

This 15 minute adventure style tutorial cartridge will teach you the basics of using the Wherigo player interface. Take your GPS device outside to begin the experience.

Starting Location

You'll need to be able to walk at least 50 meters away from your starting location in order to play. Try to find an open area where you can view most of the sky.

Since another Wherigo in the area didn't work I started to wonder what went wrong. So I tried to play this tutorial and with great success!
After 15 minutes I got an unlock code and inserted it onto this website. Again with great success.
But if I want to upload a saved game the website asks for a .gws file. I don't have a .gws file on my smartphone. Only a .gwl and .ows file.
Anyhow ... this is my first successful Wherigo I played. tastes for more!!!
