Father.IO Begins Crowdfunding for Alternate Reality FPS


FatherIO

Proxy42, a gaming and hardware company specializing in augmented reality (AR), has launched its pre-sale for Father.IO and the “363R” Trigger. This combination is the first MMO and “mobile wearable” for an ARG blended with real world environments.

Players can download the free Father.IO mobile app, attach the Trigger to their smartphones, and then interact with the real world through a camera-style interface with an FPS overlay. Players can then use their phone as their laser, and their camera as a field of view, to blast enemies many yards away with precision. The game is Risk-like, transforming cities into a science fiction reality. Players can also complete location-based quests and capture territories. While the strategy component of the game remains free, players must purchase the trigger, currently pre-priced at $59, to enter the first person shooter mode.

The idea is to make an FPS that is not only a social activity, but one that becomes a physical and interactive activity. The game plans on entering beta in Spring 2015.

You can find out more about Father.IO at its website.

    This looks cool. Only thing I can think that may be a problem is it will only be a thing for larger cities.

    FATHER.IO is revolutionary game not only in augmented reality games. It
    will bring a new fun with variable game styles. Join us and support
    this awesome project whitch is deserving to become alive.
    Don’t forget the Trigger allows gamers to blast members of the enemy faction,
    which is vital in order to defend or capture territory. The FPS mod is a
    funnier part of the game but without the Trigger you can do single or
    clan-based missions or enjoy the resource-management. It allows you to
    collect materials, research an equipment upgrade, abilitie upgrades,
    make a base harder to claim etc. If you won’t to fight you can collect
    materials and trade them with members of your clan/faction and help them
    to be stronger.
    Are you born as a leader? Commander mod is the
    right choice for you. Take control over a battle via intel map in the
    app or on the web and bring your clan/faction to win.

    IT’S EASY!
