With some of the best learning theory around, the ARIS platform was developed by educational game designers at the UW-Madison with a civic bent.  It is both a tool for creating location-based stories, and a growing community.  The iPhone download is freely available, and more than 120 games have been made.  Several academic papers are also available.  The open-source platform supports GPS, QR codes and embedded multimedia.
