Snailor is a playful walking experience that helps international students to build place attachment to New York City. It consists of a free digital application, and a physical paper accessory which can be downloaded and made by players themselves.
By turning a multiple-function mobile phone into a single-function investigation tool, the player can explore the urban environment as a real adventurer into unknown places. Inspired by the Situationist movement, random encounters make a solitary journey fun. By the end, the player will generate a psychogeography map. Snailor provides opportunities and motivation for new international students to become autonomous, and get more involved in the city.
