AR Video Game Lets You Conquer Your Neighborhood By Jogging [Video]
Run An Empire lets players take over territory in the real world and get exercise simultaneously.
Play an alternate reality game with friends or strangers and burn a few calories by walking or running while you’re at it. That’s basically the gist for new app Run An Empire, created by London-based PAN Studio.
Run An Empire is a multi-player alternate reality game where players compete against others to “own” territory in their local environment. To capture a territory, players must walk, jog or run around it. Players use the same map and a territory can be invaded and captured by another player if they walk or run around the same area of land. To maintain a territory, players must go around it regularly.
