Augmented Reality: At the Crossroads of Fiction and Real World

It took less than 10 years for immersive technologies to evolve from GPS-based Augmented Reality (AR) and bulky virtual gaming machines to 3D holograms and Matrix-like simulations of real life. Now they are sophisticated and easily-accessible at once. Gaming industry has been a force for progress, which pushes AR/VR development forward.

Augmented reality is an innovative bait for picky gamers adding extra interactivity to your app. Leverage the power of mobile device’s in-built capabilities — camera, accelerometer, GPS, and solid state compass — to transform user’s environment by using digital content and object overlays on top of real things. Incorporated in mobile games, AR enables a unique player perspective, provides loads of options for extending a gameplay, and the convenience of direct interaction with the imagery world as opposed to using a console or a keyboard.

zGames team boasts strong hands-on experience of developing AR enabled games that yield high interactivity and headlong immersion seamlessly blending the real world and fiction. We’ve been following the evolution of AR/VR technologies step by step. Location-based AR projects, leveraging device’s GPS and magnetometer, and marker-based games in our portfolio gave way to markerless games for mobile devices and AR headsets based on object tracking and recognition algorithms.

AR/VR Development

Make the Most of Social Gaming

To boost game virality, as well as foster tighter player engagement and retention to reduce the cost of user acquisition and facilitate organic growth, going social could be an efficient strategy. Such social mechanics as sharing game results on the user wall, in-game gifting or requesting power from a friend, as well as inviting friends to join in the game would be essential here.
