Acknowledgement of Country

Sandpit respectfully works across the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nations, as well as the Kaurna and Yugambeh peoples. We recognise and respect their continued cultural, spiritual and technological practices.

We also extend this to all First Nations peoples across the land known as Australia and pay respects to their Ancestors and Elders past and present.

As the very first storytellers and technologists, First Nations peoples possess invaluable knowledge and perspectives that are crucial to the work that we do across both the physical and digital realms.

Drama in Gondwana

Drama in Gondwana

A comic book web app that leads visitors through a series of playful puzzles in the Melbourne Museum’s Gandel Gondwana Garden.

Sandpit partnered with Melbourne Museum to bring the Gandel Gondwana Garden to life for young audiences.

Using a custom built web app, visitors solve five puzzles by tracking down clues located in the physical world. They meet all sorts of animals along the way including dinosaurs and megafauna, and collect the missing pages of the Groundskeeper’s handbook.

The game features beautiful original illustrations and animation from frequent Sandpit collaborator Chris Edser.

Chris and the Sandpit team collaborated with the Museum’s in-house palaeontologists to bring the game’s extinct lead characters to life in beautiful detail. Using augmented reality, Drama in Gondwana seamlessly layers the game’s fantastical world over the real world of the garden, resulting in a playful blend of story and science.
