AR Game Lures Players Outdoors

While many parents worry that their kids spend too much time playing computer games, a Canadian start-up company claims to have the answer.

AR Game Lures Players Outdoors

Revolutionary smartphone game promises to deliver AR based gaming experience outdoors.

The company has developed a completely new gaming experience allowing gamers to enjoy an action packed augmented reality game that encompasses the outside world.

Chief Executive Artist Corey King described ZenFri Inc.’s newest offering as revolutionary: “Part of the idea is that you could have an epic science fiction adventure game, with a story, and characters like you would have on a console or PC, but instead of you sitting there pretending to be on a spaceship, you’re out in your neighbourhood and the spaceship comes to you.”

“Clandestine: Anomaly” is a smart phone based game that uses GPS technology to provide a so-called “geolocative augmented reality”. The player is able to see spaceships and aliens and has the opportunity to interact with these AR characters as if they were present right before his eyes.

King is still raising money for the Clandestine: Anomaly project on Kickstarter where he hopes to get $50,000 by 6 June. Major donations are rewarded with huge virtual statues of themselves in some of the world’s most popular destinations.
