The “connected generation” is less and less involved in physical activity. Young people rarely play outdoors, and a vast amount of their time is spent on non-active and non-social games.
The need for more physical activity is clear but the lack of motivation and fun pushes many people away from it. Yet, more than 75% of mobile phone owners use their devices to play games. It is only natural that there should be mobile games that weave activity into their plot.
We understand the needs of gamers and realize the untapped potential for innovation in the gaming experience. We are an outdoor gaming company, making mobile games for different audiences, activities, and locations.
We developed a game engine for social, evolving, and diverse mobile games played outdoors through physical activity. The games are fun, engaging, and addictive like the most popular mobile games, but also healthy and charged with the feeling of “playing for real”.
Harnessing technology to bring back play as it was meant to be – active, outdoors, together.
Though nearly half of the top mobile games are strategy and role-playing games, there is only one outdoor game on that list: “Pokemon GO” with 65M MAU. We will enter this untapped market with our uniquely engaging approach.
Mobile gaming is among the fastest growing markets, and location-based and AR games are gaining popularity. Our unique approach and experience will allow us to take advantage of this growth and secure the most optimal path for the company.
The Fan Engagement and Gamification project we’ve built for Schalke04 showcases how our game engine can create a new layer of digital experience and connect the young fans via a powerful medium of mobile gaming.
We are constantly discussing future projects with new customers and are looking to expand our network of sport-oriented organizations.
