Augmented reality games

Post by Anaxagoras »

So the big one so far is Pokemon Go (for the record I haven't played it because pokemons) but I was thinking about other games that would work with that style, and it occurs to me that D&D would be a great genre to do as a game like Pokemon Go. Instead of random pokemons out in the wild you could have random monsters that attack if you get too close. Some places could be like dungeons with higher level monsters and you could play with your friends just like in D&D. Maybe markets and stuff in town where you can buy and trade equipment. You get gold and treasure for killing monsters too just like in the game. If your character is killed you have to pay to resurrect him and maybe lose some XP.

The problem I see is that gravity still rules (unaugmented) reality.

A recent entry into the genre.

Night Terrrors

It's a horror game, which puts it firmly into my territory. But I have so much on my plate right now I haven't tried it.
