When you are somewhere, where no one has been before, you should share your impressions to other. We all like games.
What it does
This game is about reaching incredible places on the Earth and registering your virtual rights to them by the right of discoverer.
Players are leaving RFID tags and upload information about it's location to the server. This way they conquer this territory. The longer tag stays unreached by other players the more territory it controls.
Once player from other team comes to it, they can capture the tag. If a player from same team reads tags, tag's influence increases. But first of all it is about inspiring people to explore the World, it is about new extreme experience.
