Quote of the Week

“We also found that people in general don’t go to that many locations in their lives on a daily basis. They go to school or work, to the gas station, or grocery store and so on. And if you, as a game designer, make them go to a specific location, then you are playing them. So we try to make things that are fun and location-relevant, like checking out where your friends are in the game.”

- Justin Beck, CEO of game developed PerBlue, on Parallel Kingdom, a game that at first was 100% location-based but now allows users to “play” anywhere on Google Maps, quoted in Frisky Mongoose
