POKÉMON GO has turned into something huge. I’ve played a lot of geolocation and GPS games and have some thoughts about the phenomenon.
Recently, standing on the shoulders of those who’ve come before me, I created a Twine game that pulls geolocation data. A work in progress, it’s called GUARDIAN OF THE BLUE LIGHT.
I review the fantastic digital book THE SILENT HISTORY which also has its users write additional content that can only be unlocked by physically traveling to a location (in theory).
I joined a storytelling event that used the geolocation app, VoiceMap, to tell an immersive fictional story. It was very cool.
A text adventure based on Orwell’s 1984. Report for your shift at the Ministry of Truth. But be careful, Big Brother is always watching.
A review of my addiction to Wallabee, a (sorta) location-based collecting game/app.
LIFELINE is an innovative game for iOS & Android that’s told in real time. College kid crash lands on a strange moon and takes your advice for some reason.
Learning to use a WW2 Enigma machine taught me to love puzzle geocaches.
I’ve always wanted to explore the world of Interactive Fiction and wouldn’t you know it, the Interactive Fiction Competition for 2014 had just opened for judging.
Battles are being fought in your neighborhood, right now. Join the fight for Ingress and accomplish…well, nothing really.
