Do you remember playing cops and robbers? Cowboys and Indians? Just plain “guns” in the streets with your friends as a child? Do you remember the adrenalin and excitement of turning a corner and not knowing if the bad guy was there waiting for you?

Spy Wars will recapture that youthful spirit by combining video games with real world locations in an augmented reality adventure.Spy Wars doesn’t take place in a fictitious world with fictitious players; the game is populated by your friends - the battlegrounds are your very homes and neighborhoods…Together with people from around the world, three Factions fight for dominance on a global scale. Are you ready to join the fight?  Visit the website for more info!  www.spywarsgame.com

Player Dominated Persistent World

You’ll join one of three factions vying for control of local, regional and national spheres of influence culminating in a massive global score.The game doesn’t sleep when you go to bed; the fight goes on 24/7.

To help your Faction achieve its goals, you’ll need to contribute in a variety of functions and roles, both cooperative and individual.There will be data hacking missions, data pickup missions, player assassination missions and even missions to stop enemy factions from using WMDs on your home neighborhoods. Combat your enemies one or one or in groups; your skills and your dedication will directly contribute to your Faction’s global success. But the enemy is working against you at every turn…

Your Place In Augmented Reality

In Spy Wars, you will fight alongside your friends as a member of different classes.Each class will have its strengths and weaknesses when completing mission objectives, so choose your path carefully.

Missions start with simple investigative tasks that help grow your database of information on enemy activities, whereabouts or objectives.This will help to contribute to your database of enemy operatives and to thwart their devious plans.As you grow in rank and experience, you may find yourself tasked with tracking down a real player’s character or even to assassinate him or her yourself (virtually, of course!).

Advance Your Special Unit (Clan/Guild)

While you’ll be a member of a Global Faction, you may still want to form smaller Special Units with your friends.Your Special Units can work together for additional bonuses, share mission objectives and data and even wage ware on other Special Units.But be careful, the door swings both ways; become too successful and your Special Unit may be a target by one or both of the other Factions…

Interactive Community Events 

The game will also feature special community events moderated by staff that will have special combat tournaments and rewards that will help you, your Special Unit and Faction gain extra notoriety and experience.

Combine forces with another Faction to stop a WMD from going off on shared territory.Stop terrorist activities targeting innocent civilians.Just get together with other members of your Faction to get to know one another…. The game is competitive, but we emphasize fun and safe social interaction above all.

Discover the Greatest Secret in the History of Mankind 

What spy game would be completed without an intriguing story? It’s all about the information, Marty…By playing the game and participating in community events, you’ll have the chance to discover clues to unravel the greatest secret in the history of Mankind – or steal that information from an opposing Faction!

What will this look like in-game? If you’re familiar with PC-based MMORPGs, think end-game raids but in real life, with real people on a massive scale!

Stretch Goals!

$300K: Double Agents: a whole new layer of complexity in gameplay, triple the graphics design budget

$450K: Raids on a global scale in the real world! (Remember the old BBS meets?Too young? Hm. Well it was cool.)

$1m – 3D graphics engine – stunning visuals

$1.5m - Professionally written single player storyline with NPC characters dynamically placed in your real world – further expansions will be crowd funded

Risks and challenges

As with any project, defining the scope is critical. Our focus will remain on the achievable in the short term, with additional features added post-launch.

Technologically, this game is built on already existing platforms with proven records. We are professionals employed in software development and project management. We currently oversee projects with much higher budgets involving thousands of man hours per month of software and web development. We deal with project challenges and risks on a daily basis.
The most significant challenge to this project is time management. Many fan-created or hobby projects start with exciting goals but fall by the wayside due to a lack of proper management - or time period.

Funds raised from Kickstarter will allow us to focus our energies on accomplishing the goal and elevate it above a ‘hobby project’. Once funded, we will provide supporters with a detailed project plan and provide regular updates.
