Play AR has been submitted to the Apple App Store!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Play AR has been submitted to the Apple App Store!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have a rough working version of Play AR and have submitted to the Apple App Store!!! Android submission coming soon....

It still has a ways to go, but the basic system is working! Our first version is a multi-user experience played out across the earth. You can play pretty much anywhere, anytime. Take over the land where you are and add models to it once you beat it. Once u beat it you own it and you can add interactive content to the location. We are making the user creation software in parallel with the multi-user and its not quite ready yet. Soon. Prizes are coming soon as well. We are trying to sync them with the app so the app had to be done. 
Here are some screen captures-

More soon!

Giant Monsters Attack Manhattan @ the Dumbo Arts Festival 2014!

Giant Monsters have begun to attack NYC and only you can save the city! Players must fight off waves of giant monsters who are trying to destroy Manhattan at the 2014 Dumbo Arts Festival. Viewers fight the monsters from the Brooklyn side of the East River with the mobile app Play AR. The app overlays virtual video game monsters onto the real world [Manhattan] with augmented reality. The game can only be played at the Dumbo Arts Festival because it is located with satellite tracking.

The startup Semblance AR is proud to launch the beta version of the Play AR app at the 2014 Dumbo Arts Festival! The Play AR app turns the entire planet into a multi-user video game. The app lets users play for territory in the real world. When players are victorious they win the land at the location they were playing. They can then customize the land [such as their house] with objects that they own or upload to the game. The app takes traditional gaming outside in a way that directly engages the real world. The app is FREE and currently available for the iPhone 4s and newer.
