Pokémon Go, Go! No 10

To be after the Pokémons will be exhaustive, because the hard core & smart ass people of gaming noticed there are Pokémons that only live by nights. You really have to concentrate!

Have a full charged battery on mobile, supportive batteries in your pockets, or know the places, where to recharge. In Finland at least some churches announced having recharge stops and Tampere Hall gave out a newsletter about this lately.

Then, you have to have a day nap in order to recharge your brain energy to chase the Pokémon night growlers. Just like we humans, Pokémons seem to have characters!

 

 

Pokémon Go, Go! No 9

Did you realise that Pokémon Go makes you aware of your surroundings, clever, witty, streetwise and talkative?

It took over a month for a journalist to write about the cultural capital Pokémon Go is offering to its players. It is so simple but so obvious, the Pokéstops are landmarks of the area, often hidden and often unknown for the passers by.

As an inhabitant in this town I seldom go to museums or art exhibition, sorry about that, and I hardly know the memory plaques if somebody asks me to name one.

Thanks to Pokémon Go, the youngsters will be more street wise of their own city, by stopping at the Pokéstops they can’t avoid knowing the history of their neighbourhood.

 

 

 

 

Citynomadi’s ‘Game this way’

Game on and have a good time with your friends: compete of knowledge in towns or areas on map in a real life!

 

Citynomadi has released a totally new kind of gaming feature for mobile environment. We have a mobile game to play on the streets of any town or in the nature environment, asking the questions .

 

The gaming takes place wherever Citynomadi’s gaming routes have been made. You’ve got to be in the locations to start, because main idea is that GPS recognizes the location of the player. Points of Interests with questions are shown after the player has answered the previous questions.

 

After answered the question, or completed the task given the player can proceed to the next Point of Interest with the next task to complete.

 

The route can be a straight forward but it can be build to split to different directions according to the answers as a network.

 

By the end of of the game tour the player gets the results and can share them on Citynomadi’s web site or social media.

 

The very first gaming route is situated in Kuopio, Finland, by the Art Museum of Kuopio, mainly by Ms Marja Louni, who is  the intendant of Kuopio Art Museum and mainly responsible for the content of the ‘Statue Game of Kuopio’ and Mr Petteri Tikkanen, who is the comic artist and mainly responsible for the graphics.

 

Our first Gaming route is 5,5 km long having 15 Points of Interests and will be followed by another of memorial plates on the house walls. Both will be multilingual and the language versions will be added shortly. Both Citynomadi and Art Museum of Kuopio are more than happy to get feedback.

 

But for you who won’t be able to travel to Kuopio, Finland in this November to try out our first Game this Way route there are demos to try gaming anywhere. The demos are situated in London and Berlin at the moment, but you are able to game them anywhere…
