Mobile gaming is THE new trend sport according to Tom Nicolai, co-founder of Bremen-based urban team. The company’s pilot project FastFoot-Challenge is certainly not a couch potato sport: The Protagonist of the GPS Multiplayer Action Game is chased by four other players equipped with a GPS enabled mobile phone. While the FastFoot-Challenge players have 25 minutes to catch the Protagonist, their friends can watch them running around on Google Earth.
Annika Brinkmann from absichtbar adapted FastFoot-Challenge for the mobile web. She enabled the user to make everything around the game directly on his mobile phone: „Besides watching life games on Google Earth, the user doesn’t need to switch on his PC. New users can download and purchase the game and register mobile. As soon as they have their log-in, they access the start page with Quick Links to community features so they can tell their friends about the game and start playing with each other. The mobile community is running in the browser of the user’s phone“ explains Annika.
