May 1, 2007 - Tourality - start moving your mobile!

BRAND NEW! Since 2007-05-01 there is a new kind of game for your mobile phone. The game is all about being on the move outdoors equipped with a Bluetooth GPS receiver and reaching spots ahead of your opponents in real-time.

Spots are geographically defined points that must be reached in reality by foot, on skates, on a bike, or by any other means of transportation. The spots are given but it’s your challenge to find the best way!

tourality.com ScreenshotCompetition?
Exactly! Now you can compete against other players in your surroundings based on Game Templates in Tourality - ‘Player vs. Player’ or ‘Team vs. Team’. You all are in the same area at the same time in the same game ;) The game is a mixture of virtuality and the reality of your movement; because only if you "move your mobile" you will advance in Tourality.

Game Templates?
You always play Tourality based on Game Templates. These are “game instructions” and a set of rules that define which spots have to be reached when. These Game Templates can be constricted by various criteria. In addition there are four different game modes: Spot RACE; Spot CHASE, Spot RUSH, and Spot ACT!.

That’s how to start into the Tourality season:
1. Check all information on the platform tourality.com.
2. Register your personal Tourality account under Signup – free of charge!
3. Download Tourality (currently in a beta phase) to your mobile phone.
4. Get out of your home with a mobile phone and a Bluetooth GPS receiver.
5. Create a new game or join a currently running game in supported areas in your surroundings.
