Create and Play a Reverse Pictionary Game in Augmented Reality (AR) [Tutorial]

Looking to create and play a reverse Pictionary game using Augmented reality(AR)? This app demo built with Unity, AR Foundation, and echoAR. is a great place to start. The full demo can also be found on echoAR’s GitHub.

Game loop

The display tells you what to draw (for example, β€œDraw a boat!” and a time counter ticking down from 20 seconds starts.
The controls to move the pen are the four buttons on your screen, which are to turn left/right and move forward/back. You should see a black line be drawn as you move forward/back. When the time runs out, the board will clear, and you will be given a new item/goal to draw, and the timer will be reset. Hand the device to the next person, and good luck to them as they try to draw the object before the time runs out!

Changing the metadata in echoAR

You can add or delete the β€œdrawing goals” and their time (in seconds) in the metadata for the notepad object. To do so, simply add an entry with the key being the drawing goal (e.g., β€œhouse”), and its value being the time allocated to draw it before the timer runs out (e.g., β€œ20”).
