“In the movies they were taught the good guys always win….”
On Thursday 19th July 2012 AppGear released the long awaited augmented reality game; Elite CommandAR.
What is augmented reality? I hear some of you say…. Augmented reality aims to duplicate the environment around you in a computer (or in our case an iPhone, iPad, iTouch, or Android Device). It combines the real scene (as viewed by the user) and a virtual scene generated by a computer.
“Those who survived crawled out of the rubble that was once a house, a city, a country… “
Elite CommandAR turns your world into a digital battlefield.
Playing Elite CommandAR will immerse your physical self into a virtual mission. You will be using the AR markers included with the game to take out and defeat the alien invaders who are sneaking through the portal from their world into yours. You will need to use your intelligence, wit and cunning to fight for the survival of the planet…. Your family, your friends, everyone you know…
“Using scavenged alien technology, we built a cybernetically enhanced suit to put one fighter on equal footing with the Vorosins.
And that marine is…you”.
Do you think you can complete the mission? Save the planet?
Comic-Con is a huge event and takes place every year in San Diego. It’s a comic and arts convention, which features comic books (obviously… hence the title of the event!), games, art, movies and special guests. It’s a chance for fans from across the world to congregate under one roof, dress as their favorite comic/movie characters and participate in some celebrity sight seeing for days on end…. And this year AppGear had the chance to participate as a special guest!
Thousands of people flooded through the AppGear games truck, which was parked in Petco Park Parking Lot outside the Comic-Con main entrance.
Dedicated pilots fighting in historic battles, hungry and tired zombies fighting off hordes of angry humans, elite commanders saving the earth from a fierce race of bloodthirsty aliens and everyone trying to stop those pesky little green aliens from escaping! The AppGear team and fans gathered together in extraordinary fashion for an event to remember.
AppGear fans had the chance to try our latest augmented reality app toys as well as have sneak peeks into future releases. Cash prizes were given and battles were won!
It was 4 days of fun-tastic mayhem and the AppGear team loved every minute of it!
