TaleBlazer is a platform for creating and playing location-based augmented-reality games. The TaleBlazer web-based editor allows users to build customized games using a blocks-based programming language. In order to allow more user groups to utilize various features offered by TaleBlazer, building an intuitive editor user interface is especially essential to maximizing usability and learnability. This thesis presents a new version of the editor with improved front-end design and a new tutorials system. The updated implementation is intuitive, powerful, and user-friendly for both novice and experienced TaleBlazer users.
