About

Want to become more active, social and still play an awesome game using your smartphone ? 

The last 3 years I have spent every single dollar I had on this project because I wanted to change how we play games now and in the future.

People nowadays play games on desktop, tablets and smartphones but without having any other physical activity than raising the arm and  cursing when you get killed or your base is being destroyed.

I have created the perfect mix between known games like CounterStrike, Clash of Clans, Modern Warfare, GTA and a bit of my own fantasy and created RonRik.

The idea behind RonRik is simple - giving you a full advantage of the games you love, but 'forcing' you to interact with others and take the gameplay out on the streets.

Now you won't have to be bound to your PC and miss the beautiful things outside. That's why we label this game as social, first, because the entire gaming experience is much more fun with more people around

The playing field is right outside your door. How cool is that ?

Please take a look at our first official teaser to understand a bit more what augmented reality is and how players will see it through the camera on their smartphone

Finally, after many builds we are ready to have our alpha testers see the work of our sweat, tears and long nights without any sleep and give us feedback. 

Many people have tried and failed this idea but I can guarantee that we have made it  work and soon the World will see it and will be able to play RonRik. 

Through the camera on your display you will suddenly see enemies mixed in between real humans and be able to shoot them.

People often have asked me " I will look stupid running around with my phone like that and shooting"  

But I would rather run around look like an idiot but have the time of my life being active, social and having fun at the same time than just do as the rest of world has started to do- becoming inactive.

I have tested RonRik in environment with hundreds of people and people didn't thought I looked like an idiot, but on the contrary they were all very interested in seeing what I was playing.

When entering the game you will see the RonRik Home Screen.

All players start as novices, and it requires skill, endurance and luck, to become a RonRik soldier.

Looking at the own developed built-in Google-map solution on your display, not only can you locate your potential and battle ready enemies, but also the position of safe houses, ammo depots, healing centres, RonRik banks, and local bonus collection points.

The special locations have different purposes, for example, in a safe house a player cannot be killed; in a bank point, the player can put money from his wallet to his account etc. Special locations will vary depending on the player's actual location i.e. they will see the special locations in their surrounding on the map.

*If you have a business, becoming a gaming point in RonRik app will bring potential clients directly to your doorstep. 

Whenever you defeat an enemy, a pop-up appears leaving you the option of robbing the enemy’s cash money.

But take care: Your adversary also receives notification telling them who defeated him. 

They may have resources you have underestimated, allowing them to choose instant REVENGE by hiring a virtual assassin; issue a bounty on your head; request an instant high-powered guided missile or Geo-fence you in. So select your opponent with care.

You can obtain RonRik Dollars in the game in different ways, such as through purchasing RonRik Dollars; robbing other players you have defeated; connecting your account to social networks; Entering gaming points like safehouses, ammo points and health points and be rewarded; by collecting bonus points etc.

You may keep your RonRik dollars in cash so they are readily available for ammo up-grades and protective gear during active battle. You can also protect your RonRik Dollars by transferring them to your RonRik virtual bank account, but only when you are located near one of our street level safe houses or in a RonRik bank point.

During battle you risk only losing RonRik Dollars you have kept in your wallet, but not those deposited on your RonRik bank account.

But banks may not always be opened, and one safe house may suddenly be replaced with another during the game.

So always be on the move.

Risks and challenges

When I got the idea 3 years ago, the biggest problem was actually that I had to wait until the technology was good enough, and even now, 3 years later we still are having issues that we need to live with and can only solve along the way.
The game is innovative and there are several technical limitations we have struggled to overcome with the current level of modern technology: GPS data accuracy, compass data accuracy, computer vision and real world objects recognition.
We have done loads of research and testing to see how much traffic it loads, how much loading is needed until the different devices crush. Complex server structure since the only ones that are doing similar to us is Google's Ingress.
Our gameplay is much different though, and we are using augmented reality which they are not. Our Open World Server structure is using Amazon servers and had to be built so it could easily be scaled and added to more future functions and features.
On a more personal matter, the biggest challenge for me has been that I had to balance a full-time developing app project and still, take care of my full-time job and be a family dad. This has resulted in overweight, beginning stress and lack of sleep ... But then I have a great possibility of losing all the weigh and show how effective RonRik is :-)

I love this project from the bottom of my heart and I wouldn't have missed anything at all no matter how hard it has been;
From thinking and describing the whole idea to others, trying to make them understand what first version will include, but also having other people to see the big picture, what will players get in the next future versions ect.
My biggest concern is that I don't have enough funding to launch Public beta and start Team Mode version which is unique.

The costs of starting up the Amazon servers are huge along with the team that has been sitting and developing day and night on this.

Available map plug-ins for the game were not good enough so we had to develop our own map plug-in for Unity 3D. This has given us an extra advantage in enhancing the player experience.

And let's not talk how difficult marketing was and learning how to approach different markets when launching worlds wide.

We hope you will back us up and bring our dream to life.
