Raincrow Studios will discuss competing with giants in the world of augmented reality and their commitment to creating a world-class entertainment brand in the Shenandoah Valley. Their mobile game, Covens, is a unique player on the growing augmented reality landscape as it shares the same real-world map as Google Maps and their commitment to creating a world-class entertainment brand. “The first time I saw a Google map on a smartphone, I saw a field-of-play for a world of gamers,” said Travis Fox, Co-founder of Raincrow Studios. Covens, a location-based augmented reality game of magic and witchcraft, is the realization of that vision, taking full advantage of device-mobility and real-world awareness. “We wanted to build a game that was in rhythm with nature; the phases of the moon, the change of seasons, even weather affect the player and the behavior of NPCs in the game. We really challenged ourselves to reach beyond elder-game concepts and design something that changes with every launch, something beautiful, social and perpetual.”
Covens is a unique player on the growing augmented reality landscape as it shares the same real-world map with several forthcoming titles from Raincrow. The original narrative is interwoven among the games, and the witches of Covens will soon find themselves confronting vampires of Vampire Tribunals and Van Helsing-types in Sons of Enoch.
Raincrow Studios have been in the augmented reality sandbox since 2011 and are a team of 6 full-timers. They are an interactive digital media and tech company that produces augmented and virtual reality mobile games, apps and content. Add’l reading: Travis Fox, for VentureBeat.
