The new augmented reality game Run An Empire encourages users to run through their city and capture real-world territory in a virtual strategy game.
Produced by London-based production company PAN Studio, the game lets players compete with their neighbours to own the most territory in their area. The owner is whoever runs / walks / jogs around it the most times. Players must choose with every run if they are going to reinforce their own territory or liberate an opponent’s.
The developers aimed to get people to explore their cities and so they created “a proper game with strategy, collaboration and immersive gameplay, which takes place outdoors.”
