I can neither confirm or deny I worked on an earlier iteration of this game! But it is nice to see it out and about.

And now a dive into the weird wacky world of mobile AR.

Recent release:
ARBlox: Tower Crash Fall: Real-Time Social Multiplayer (Early Access)
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... lox.towers


Slightly older release
ARBlox: ARacers - Carpet Drift, real-time multiplayer (Early Access)
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... lox.racing


ARblox. Build & Play Together.No Limits. Mobile AR
Another project I was involved in was ARBlox.
I masterminded and co-developed the original concept. On a spare time basis 2 person team. It has changed a bit since my involvement. The basic idea was to create a social network for AR creation and games. Back when mobile AR was fresh and new. And nobody really had any idea where it was going. I consider the entire field of mobile AR the coolest and fascinating mobile technology... nobody really cares about using. Sadly. It's a tough space so occupy at the moment.
The project was not fully realized. But we got a good way with the prototype! And there was some actual fun moments to be had. Walking around building, and interacting with your own physicality on virtual objects is just pretty cool!
I think they are still working on it to some degree. I hope it goes well! And wish them all the best! :D

Jeppe having a talk about ARBlox


ARBlox (the company) is keeping very busy and also working on an upcoming AR puzzle game, The Door. Looks pretty! I am looking forward to give it a spin sooner or later.



Also another DK AR project I was involved with. (1 day a week over a few months. Was Little Alice from Step in Books. Last time I heard, that project was not moving forward though.
Jonas Schneider (German Jonas) demonstrates a bit from the prototype.

Mark AR from our very own Copenhagen based SYBO Games is also developing a social network for AR creation. With a location anchored graffiti focus. (Not a game I think). So the question is if SYBO with their GAZILLIONS of dollars can launch an AR based social network.

Well the visual upgrade of the Sonic character certainly helped a lot. Looks like a perfectly Hollywood run of the mill kiddy popcorn flick. Might go see it with the kiddo if he is into it. Wouldn't happen on my own time.
