About this project

Background Story

As a New Yorker, a digital geek and a wanna-be-gamer-if-only-a-game-was-interactive-with-my-daily-life, I found myself wanting to interact and battle with the other people on the streets (well, not everyone, just the slow walkers… you know who you are… how do you get to where you’re going? Do you have all the time in the world? I don’t. I want to get there and get there on time… Sorry, I digress) while doing my most mundane activities; going to work, walking to the store, or just shopping with my girlfriend. That’s when the idea of Mobile Urban Warfare came to me. A simple game, where I have the freedom to battle anyone, to go rogue and compete in missions, or just set up shop in a park and play sniper on the passersby. I see my friends and brother (a true Ooh-Rah Marine) playing Call of Duty where it simulates being in real combat, but from an onlookers perspective; but Mobile Urban Warfare puts you “in” the game, battling and chasing (and in my case running from) real people around you.

Mobile Urban Warfare is my gift to all the others like me, as well as everyone else. Next time you get frustrated with a slow walker, bored while shopping, or sitting in traffic… Pull out your phone and battle.

Description

Mobile Urban Warfare provides a completely immersive gaming and reward experience for all mobile gamers. Pitting man against man, mano against mano, friend against friend, in a location based, augmented reality, mobile experience that has never been seen before. Mobile Urban Warfare will become a global phenomenon where covert operations take over our cities, towns, and neighborhoods… In the digital environment of course.

Mobile Urban Warfare is built on an open environment where the game is constantly being played, giving the user the option for open play, battles, missions, and leveling up through different exercises. The user is displayed a radar and dashboard on their mobile devise where they can retrieve missions, request a battle and  identify where other players and rewards are for open play. The dashboard is an augmented reality overlay using a combination of the camera and GPS to coordinate the information on the mobile screen.

The user can then participate in their own covert operations, sneaking up on other players taking them out, fulfilling a mission like eliminating 5 people or securing a building, or leveling up with a reward activity.

Imagine going to shopping, walking to work, or even a nice Sunday stroll… can now be a  heart pumping, invigorating experience.

Goal

Our goal of $100,000 will cover our team’s operating expenses for the next 6 months to produce this amazing experience for everyone to enjoy.

We want to make sure you have the most fun and have the best experience possible while playing Mobile Urban Warfare.
