Google Chrome users can now journey
through Middle -earth just like Bilbo Baggins.
Like a simplistic version of Pottermore
, “A Journey Through Middle-earth” provides users with the history behind locations and characters from The Hobbit
. Locations such as Trollshaw Forest, Rivendell, and Dol Guldur are interactive, featuring games and exclusive stills from An Unexpected Journey
and The Desolation of Smaug
. More locations will be released in the upcoming weeks.
Guided by the voice of Gandalf the Grey, users are introduced to the world brought to life by Peter Jackson’s big-screen trilogy. Scrolling through high-res photos from the films, hidden gifs and literary tidbits are stored throughout the site.
Partnering with Warner Bros, New Line Cinema, and MGM, Google created the Tolkien-inspired experience to bring 3D interactions to mobile devices.
The experience is intended to operate on Android or Apple mobile devices because of their high quality graphics cards.
