The Locus Project recreated Amiais village in the Second Life metaverse. Here we aim to develop and test interactive immersive scenarios, based on co-designed ludic storytelling, to explore cultural contents and learn about the cultural heritage of Amiais. The project also aims to understand the impacts of individual characteristics in immersive practices in metaverses in order to conceptualize virtual ludic experiences to promote cultural heritage and converge it with experiences in the physical territory.
