In our research for the Future Of Gaming report, our consulting team noticed a growing tendency towards games being used To Improve Everyday Personal Behavior. One example of this trend is Explorence–a start-up that develops mobile games which can turn any outdoor recreational activity into a real life video game. Its first game, Dash! is a mobile application that enables users to create, participate, and compete asynchronously in outdoor races at any time. Users design their own courses, utilizing the GPS capabilities of their smartphones, and wager virtual currency on the race. Once a race is logged onto the platform, anyone using the app can compete in a custom race developed by fellow users. races are further enhanced by music, check points, leaderboards and rewards. The soon-to-debut game is currently in private beta.
