World Reborn is an interactive story game platform where you practice becoming a hero - dealing with bullying, prejudice, etc. - within the mobile game and then unlock missions to be a hero in real life. The journey begins at a school in a new dimension where your choices and real-world actions fuel your fate. Being recruited by a mysterious underground group, you receive an ominous warning: saving the school means saving that world.


The mobile app runs in the Unity game engine, combined with the Niantic Lightship ARDK, a cross-platform development kit that brings the player a more realistic and diverse AR experience. The entire game is powered using Node.js in Serverless Framework, the first framework developed for building applications on AWS Lambda.
