Gaming takes many forms these days, but applying it on top of public spaces allows people to enjoy the great outdoors in a social, active way

Technology has changed gaming for the better, making online experiences more social and physical games more immersive. Now, developers are turning their focus to the world outside, finding out how to activate public spaces with games and play. Outdoor areas can now become sites for games or social experiences that invite visitors to engage in an optional layer of entertainment.
