There’s not much left for the premiere of the second part of The Hobbit, and Chrome celebrates it in the form of an interactive journey to the Chrome Experiment. On this website, available for Google Chrome on tablet, PC and smartphone, we will be able to access a journey through Middle-earth with interactive elements that will surely attract many fans of the Tolkien universe.
This trip to Middle-earth brings us a tour of the locations and characters that appear in the The Hobbit trilogy using new web technologies, and created by the company North Kingdom that, to do so, has collaborated with Warner Bros, New Line Cinema and Metro Goldwyn Mayer. To start we will dive into a map where we will see the locations of Middle-earth, and where we can zoom to explore mythical landscapes and regions in 3D, such as the forest where the stone trolls, Rivendel or Dol Guldur are. In each entry we will be able to read about the history of the place and the characters that live there (in addition, it should be noted that all the entries are subtitled in Spanish and narrated in English).
If we enter one of the three available locations and navigate through the different pages, we can even access some mini-games set in the area (for example, we can go to Trollshaw to dodge trolls). All embellished with quality audio effects to make the experience more immersive.
In the next few days we will be able to explore Erebor, Laketown and the Thranduil Caverns. We leave you here with a video of what we can see with this Chrome experiment:
