If you are bored of playing games sitting in front of your PCs or using your gaming consoles, you will soon be able to move out in your natural surroundings and play games using your smartphones. Morten Rongaard, the CEO of IntelMarketing, a digital marketing company has announced the creation of an augmented reality combat gaming app. The project is currently running a Kickstarter campaign. The company claims that this is the first combat gaming app which uses augmented reality and turns your natural environment into a battlefield.
The Idea behind the RonRik
The idea behind this gaming app RonRik, is pretty simple. Play the game and become more social and active. You can get full advantage of the games you love to play but in a different way. You will be compelled to take the game outside and interact with others in your area. The entire gaming experience will be much more fun when you interact with real people around you.
All you need to do is step outside with your mobile device and the app installed in it and you can start playing. Rongaard said in its Kickstarter page regarding the game “I have created the perfect mix between known games like CounterStrike, Clash of Clans, Modern Warfare, GTA and a bit of my own fantasy and created RonRik.”
How to Play the Game?
You have to download the app and use the camera of your mobile device and point out towards your surroundings. You will find your enemies in the game among real humans and your goal is to shoot them down. You will start as a novice and gradually become a RonRik soldier.
Using the Google Maps of your mobile device, you will also be able to find out position of ammo depositories, safe houses, RonRik banks, healing centers and local bonus collection points. These special locations each have a different purpose to help the players and depending on your actual location, these will vary.
As you defeat enemies, you will get a pop-up which will give you the option of robbing the cash money from your enemies. But be careful while choosing your enemies, as they will also be notified about your details. They might have resources with which they will take revenge on you and shoot you. There are also various ways through which you can earn RonRik Dollars and keep them safely.
Sounds interesting? Well, you can then head to the Kickstarter page and pledge your funds to help raise the funding goal of the augmented reality gaming app.
