Top 10 Augmented Reality Concept Games – Part I
Having just finished another xBox 360 game I’m thinking about my next game purchase. Augmented Reality has the potential to revolutionize gaming so today we’ll look at the top 10 list of augmented reality games that I really want to play. The caveat is none of these games are available, some of these are still concepts, some are in beta, and others… well have disappeared. So think of this list as my top 10 wish-list.
Top 10 in reverse order
Yes it’s retro but it makes the list because everyone who grew up in the 80s loves Pacman
9: Skreek Station
I have no idea what this game is about, it looks interesting but more importantly it looks like one of those games that could change the board game genre.
The simple games are the best and what can be simpler than a game of memory.
Another nice simple game, get the marble to the exit.
6: Roku’s Reward
I’m not sure if this one was ever designed to be a real game or just a promotion video from HP. It’s definitely a game that looks exciting and show’s some amazing possibilities for augmented reality gaming. WifiArmy are another company trying to create a game that spans LBS, augmented reality and mobile but their website has’t been updated for almost a year. Solutions that offer this level of real world interaction would seem to be some way off but it will be interesting to see how Layar’s new 3D platform develops.
