Gaming comes in all forms. There are people that enjoy board games, console games, PC games, and mobile games. No matter what your interests may be, there seems to be a platform for everyone to enjoy in the gaming universe.
There are quite a few augmented reality games you can try, which range from heavy to light in terms of the real world things they’ve implemented. You’re often only able to use your mobile phone to participate, but what if you could participate with Google Glass? Seeing these games intertwined with the real world element they have play out in front of your eyes would seem to be much more enjoyable than looking at a second screen smartphone.
Until developers decided to take Glass that route though, all we can do is hope. Even without the added bonus of a Glass game application, ARGs are still being implemented quite well on mobile phones. Augmented reality continues to become more prominent to developers as it proves its worth in the mobile space. The gaming industry is beginning to implement it more now to try and revolutionize each individual game experience.
Augmented reality in gaming has even spawned international contests to see who could create the best experience. Metaio, sponsor of the contests, is the leader in AR research and recently chose winners of their latest developer contest. One of the winners was Clandestine Anomaly, which is more than just a mobile game. It is an immersive narrative augmented reality experience, where players use their smart mobile device or tablet as the primary window into a covert science fiction adventure that takes place all around them."
