Safari is a mobile-based augmented reality (AR) city game, where players team up to collect virtual objects and find animals in AR. Throughout, players must manage communication channels effectively to be able to catch all the animals safely before time is up.
It was an ordinary night at the animal sanctuary before “Kamoola” discovered the guard sleeping, approached him, and stole the keys to the gate. On opening the sanctuary doors, all the animals were able to flee. To bring the animals back to safety, the teams download the app onto their device, scan the QR code and get ready to play. Each player is assigned a specific role. Operators have a big map view with animal locations; Scientists gather potions to make sedatives, and Rangers gather equipment to catch and transport the animals.
In Safari, each player must be conscious of their given role and ensure that all team members communicate effectively. Furthermore, the intriguing storyline and AR game format actively encourage all team members to participate.
In working their way to the end goal, teams must actively listen, consider all opinions, and make decisions quickly in a limited amount of time. While socializing and having fun, participants will discover the talents of others and learn how to work together to achieve their goals. The scalable gameplay of this experience means that Safari is ideally suited to both small and more significant groups.
