AR Games

Some examples of AR in Gaming:

Always Something Somewhere Else - This game can be played anywhere outside in the world. It is a sort of scavenger hunt, and there is an audio narrative that goes with the game. It is about exploring your environs, finding something new, and connecting to a greater shared experience about being in the world. There is this platform, Mediascapes developed by University of Bristol, for developing GPS games for smart phones.

Uncle Roy All Around You - By Blast Theory, this game is played "online in a virtual city and on the streets of an actual city. Online Players and Street Players collaborate to find Uncle Roy's office before being invited to make a year long commitment to a total stranger." It connects physical and virtual space and two different roles for different players.
