Urban Decay Launches First AR Game with Limited Edition Robin Eisenberg Collection

Invite Robin Eisenberg’s Alien Baddies into your home for the holidays, with a new Augmented Reality game made with love, from Tool and Urban Decay.

The AR game launches from Urban Decay’s new hero Naked palette to create an AR experience that blends UD’s packaging with an interplanetary game inspired by the visual style of extraterrestrial illustrator, Robin Eisenberg. 

The Product

From joyful sunsets to celestial stardust, the Naked x Robin Eisenberg palette features new metaversal shades with cosmic color travelers and 12-hour anti-gravity glitters.

The product highlights the collaboration with LA-based artist, Robin Eisenberg as she delivers a stellar take on the collection with her female-empowered characters and illustrations. We integrated a QR code into the packaging to allow for a creative extension of the palette experience using AR. This is a web-based experience that is being promoted through packaging and Sephora retail experiences.  

Gameplay

Players press play to get the good vibes started.

A portal will appear revealing Robin Eisenberg’s galaxy. Spaceships, featuring Alien Baddies, fly out through the portal and hover around the player’s surroundings.

The more good vibes sent and happily received, the more points the player will earn. As a reward, players are able to download a custom generated shareable from Robin Einserberg’s illustrations with the player’s Good Vibe score where they can post on social media.

Global Reach

For a global launch, the experience is accessible to players worldwide.

With a choice between English and Spanish language, Beamin’ Up can immerse players everywhere into Robin Eisenberg’s unique galaxy and promote Urban Decay’s new holiday collection.

Custom Shareables

Based on the player’s score, they will receive a custom shareable from Robin Eisenberg’s illustrations.

The shareables are animated with their score and vibe check. Players can download and share the asset on their favorite social media platform!

The Tech

This is a web-based AR experience that is available to a global audience without requiring a download. It was built on the Niantic/8th Wall WebAR platform.

To ensure that the portals, Space Baddies and other elements spawn around the player, we used SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) to track the player's environment and their relation to the camera position. From this, we designed an algorithm that ensures that the portals spawn around the environment/player and maintain the size of the assets in relation to the distance from the player.
