“It’s really a comprehensive, on-going battle that is happening on every block, in every city across the world,” says Paul Miser creator of the project. “The distinct combination of technologies and real-time interaction is revolutionizing the way mobile gaming is played.”
Mobile Urban Warfare is a location-based, mobile warfare game that utilizes GPS and augmented reality technologies to put the player actually in the game. Basically, it takes your warfare gaming experience from the “console” and into the real world.
As stated in the Kickstarter video and project page, Mobile Urban Warfare is built on an open environment that allows for various levels of play:
• Open Play: Where you can run around free willy and shoot things, people, etc.
• Missions: Where you are given specific tasks to conquer based on your location, rank, etc.
• Battles: Claim war on your fellow local gamers, then plot against them to take them out.
• Team Play: Build ranks and teams to take on others in your neighborhood and city.
Mobile Urban Warfare is a product of the blackwhalegroup, a New York based idea-studio that focuses on converging our digital lives with the physical world that surrounds us.
