Pokémon Go, Go! No 13

The Finnish Science Center Heureka had a successful Pokémon Go day last Saturday. Over 2000 players of different ages took part of the happening and chased Pokémons in the Heureka surroundings.

The theme of the event was to understand the phenomenon through gaming research by two leading researchers Frans Mäyrä from the University of Tampere and Johannes Koski from the University of Turku.

They explained the gaming experience and success of Pokémon Go and predicted, that this is just the start to location based gaming, gaming after the map information and gaming attached to the AR features.
